Video: Crazy Three-Hour iPhone 4 Wait at Apple Store

Posted By on Thu, Jun 24, 2010 at 11:00 AM

Digg founder and Apple fan Kevin Rose just posted this video of the iPhone 4 line currently formed outside of the Union Square Apple store, which seems to be wrapped around multiple blocks. It takes Rose about two minutes and 35 seconds to go from one end of the queue to another, which he hypothesizes must be about a three-hour wait.

Once again we, as Gizmodo editor Brian Lam eloquently put it, "STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE ARE LINE SITTING IN THE ERA OF PREORDERING."



Unless they're in it for some weird publicity stunt, like you know, this guy.

    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
