You Apples Clones crack me up. You used to be a proud bunch but now that the cats out of the bag so to speak you all first begin your talk about Apple products you own with something like having no shame. Which leads me to believe you actually do. Its starting to sink in now many of you realize how closed up Apples products are and how counter productive this severe seperation from other mainstream tech is. Theres nothing wrong with being different but if you have to jump through hoops to get your work done or make compromises and end up using services that are over priced and a pain to use whats the point? Your all Addicted to the dream. I dunno what dream that is but I want what you guys have been smoking to get it.

Nobody cares about Will Smith's autograph. All he does is stop Gordon from telling subscribers to "fuck off." But Gordon, boy would I love to have his autograph. I would definitely stand in line for that.

Yes I'm sure that Editor Will Smith is the 1st person someone who had no clue that the iPhone was comeing out thoguth of. Or maybe it was a movie star, who knows?

If they haven't heard of the new iPhone how would they know anything about a video card? or even a Zune?

If everyone waiting in line for the iPhone received a complimentary vasectomy, we could wipe out this fanboy problem in a couple of generations.

I'm not convinced fake gordon mah ung isn't the real Gordon Mah Ung.

Sorry, but no one standing in line to buy his SECOND iPhone has the right to get all smart-assy. :)

Modern Society is making leaps and bounds further into the exciting tehnological breaktroughs being made in the electronics world. Already in high schools teachers assume students have computers to do assignments on. Already our lifestyles are intertwined with computers and cellphones(blackberries and (iphone, hehe) ) that I cant wait to see what the world will be like 20 years from now. So for those people that dont even know that the Iphone is coming out is unbelievable. Think of this all you cavemen, in the future not having a cellphone will be akin to be not having a car.

Those lies were the craziest I have ever heard of! I'm not sure who hasn't ever heard that the iPhone 3G wasn't going to be released that day... those tech outsiders should be put in a computer 'boot' camp and be forced to learn about computers 24/7. Plus...it was on the news! How could anyone not get info on it?

Great lies Norman... Great Lies!

What possible reason could people have, to think of Apple Store shoppers (and/or people whose lives revolve around their phone) are jerks??????

People probably asked the guy in line who looked least like an ass --I guess this proves why they would do that. Sure proved those "judge a book by its cover" people wrong.

Here I'd thought that my nephews' standing hours in line for a Wii was an adventure in stupity and wasting time. I guess Apple decided to improve on that model.

Oh, and I could not possibly care less about the release dates of the next 50 Apple products, or countless countless new phones. Are they really anything but the newest, pricy flavor-of-the-month gimic?

A phone w/service plan that works anywhere there's any [non-emergency] cellular service --that might be something to wait in line for...

Great idea with the lies in line. Long lines with a friend waiting with you can be fun. I've made up some really strange comments in line that makes people turn around and give a look like "what are you talking about?" or "Could that be really true?"

Personal faves (anyone can have these):

So the cat was hanging from the ceiling fan for how long?

There I was in the middle of New York City facing an escaped Saber Tooth cat and I was fresh out of dental floss.

Now how does a badger actually eat a dog?

Heard about the health code violation at *name a famous resturant*?

Tell ya what Will, sign the cover of a MPC mag every month and throw the bitch up on eBay and I gurantee you, you would be able to either finance a 2008 Corvette Z06 or give a generous amout of worldy currency away to a charrity to warrant a ticket into Heaven.  In fact I am so sure my ideas are so 1337 that you should bring me on as a consultant.

 

Next up, Gordon signings with free CHICKEN Caesar Salads.
