Yesterday at 4 pm my buddy Al Long, also known as Georgetown's "mac man," snapped this pic of the fellow who is definitely first in line at the Georgetown Apple store (and maybe for the whole city) to buy the new iPhone 5. It goes on sale this morning. Would you sit outside all afternoon and overnight, a chilly night, to be the first to buy a phone, or anything for that matter? They cost from $199 and up, mostly up.
I don't think I'm in the mix for the 5. I'm happy with my 4S, though if I hear that the camera is insanely better, I may be tempted ... down the road. Sometimes I still miss my Blackberry, for the tactile keyboard, but I'm not going back.
Good luck today, shoppers.
(Note, if you need any kind of Mac help, do contact Al. He makes home calls.)
