Waiting for iPhone

I'm lucky 13 in line as zero hour approaches.

There are fewer than 100 folks here at the Stonestown Mall iPhone line this a.m. I'm lucky No. 13. Mall security has shunted us outside, but it's not uncomfortable. The smart ones brought beach chairs -- not me. The mood is quiet, almost serious. Lots of typing on cells. Unsurprising, considering the occasion. Apple staff just came by to take Starbucks orders -- on the house. Mall security looks to be a rather meditative occupation. Sending this from a cell, so I'll say l8r.
