The Times UK reported earlier this morning that about 60 people had congregated outside of Apple's flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York in anticipation of the launch of the second-generation iPhone. We were initially planning on going up there to ask people what could possibly compel them to stand in line in 100-degree heat to wait for a product they probably wouldn't even be able to buy for six days, but when we called the store to confirm that people were in fact waiting, the operator told us he wasn't allowed to comment. Then we called back again 15 minutes later and got someone else on the phone, who told us there was no queue to speak of.
Are people waiting for the damn thing or not? We headed over to the Apple store in Soho to find out for ourselves.
