I have no idea why people would wait in line for a product? Are they that starved of attention or are they just that impatient? Why wouldn't they just get it a day or a week later? I mean are the people that waited in line for an iphone 3 still reaping the benefits? How long does that air of superiority last for the person?

I have never really understood camping out for something other than if you were at a refugee camp waiting for food and water.

Would it be so bad to get the new piece of tech or see the movie a week later?

Don't have a smartphone, so I don't know anything about that stuff. But let's say I've got an Iphone already. Is the new one capable of anything that makes it not only worthwile to spend money on it, but also stand in line for days? Saw clips of people getting high fives and stuff from apple employees when the last one came out, looked like a religious cult or something

I wouldnt camp out for days in line at a store for 500 cash. I sure as hell wouldnt do it to spend money on anything. Maybe if its a sure fire PS3 situation where I can pay 600 and flip it for 2000+. But even then not 2 days. Id maybe arrive at 6 or 7 and wait till midnight. If I were off....and had nothing at all to do. And no NBa or NFL games were on.

And Breaking bad isnt on. Or Game of thrones.

Pretty much...has to be dead middle of summer good weather and a 3-4 hour wait. With a sure triple of the money I put in.

Huh?

Why would I when I can walk directly to a Sprint dealer and get one during my lunch?

For the record, even tho I think it's dumb to camp out, it is something I'd like to do just once for the f*ck of it.

I like my iPhone 4S and all...but even if this phone could cook bacon and eggs and suck my balls, I'm not spending weeks waiting in line for it.

I think this thread backfired. OP probably assumed that because it's 2013, everyone must be into getting the latest, greatest device first. You know, because waiting a day or two is a long time. Imagine all the new pics you can take and post on your FB in the meantime!
