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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
