    iPhone 5 is finally here, IOS-6, a smaller iPad, and I wonder what else they will unveil?

    I figure that once they announce it the new phones will most likely be available in about 2 weeks, but that is only if you pre-order or stand in a super long line. I figure I will wait to see what bugs it has before I get one.

    I am surprised that they would take any of the thunder away from the iPhone 5 release. What you say makes perfect sense.

    I imagine that you could pre buy it from verizon, probably less crowded than going to an apple store.

    i refuse to stand in line anymore. the last few times i just waited till around 4pm and ordered online. takes 2 or 3 tries before an order goes all the way through. then the stuff shows up by 10am the same day they go on sale at the stores.

    the last time i was in line it was in July-August. Even in the shade it was > 95f Apple handed out free bottled water and umbrellas (we had to return the umbrellas) to us to block the sun. even so people were dropping from the heat outside the fifth ave store and the ambulances were carting people away 2 or 3 an hours for the 4 hours i was online.

    I saw the line there once and thought it was not bad until I turned the corner, then the other corner, and the corner after that, finally I gave up and went and got some breakfast instead.

    I bet they come out of the closet and admit that they have only been selling their products to gay people. :coffee:
