It’s 4:45pm EST on Friday, June 29th, 2007. I’m in line at the Clarendon Apple Store in Arlington, VA. I hopped on some stray wireless and thought i’d report on my status. Things are pretty quiet here.
There are maybe 200-250 people in line. Apple was out before passing out free water and not crappy bottled water. It was the expensive bottled water.
It sprinkled outside for a little bit but the rain just subsided. Luckily for me, I’m seated underneath the Barnes & Noble awning.
There has been a steady stream of reporters and photographers out here doing there thing. These two ladies chic dresses just walked by trying to get people to sign up for a raffle. See now this is smart. You have a bunch of male geeks waiting in line. I’m surprised more aren’t doing this.
Well one hour to go. More later.
