    Maybe 200 in front, 300 behind?
    I joined about 6:30.
    I am just about to enter the store in about 10 mins I would guess! :)

    Thanks for the wishes for wellness. Right now the doctors are stumped, but she is sleeping and doing fine. Hope you guys enjoy that new iPhone!

    Yup, totally worth it.

    Standing in line with folks just as excited as you are is cool. The atmosphere was great this morning. The geniuses did their customary lap of the queue all shouting "iphone 5, iphone 5, iphone 5!" about 7:50. The first guy in line got the VIP treatment at 8am on the dot. Taken in personally and sold the first iPhone on his own in the shop by all the staff at once... Very cool. He had been camped out since yesterday, so I guess I'll never know that feeling since I enjoy sleeping in my bed too much.
    A 5am start was early enough for me! :D

    The phone is awesome. Looks and feels gorgeous. Performs very well. etc. etc. Well worth it IMHO!

    Love the description of your experience, f478oy! I feel like I am right there living the moment with all of you. I had no idea that they service the first person in line like that! How special that is! :)
