First in line

When we arrived at the Apple store this morning there was no one in line. We’re still the first two idiots in line. But it’s been good for PR. We’ve been interviewed almost constantly since 9:30 a.m.

Anyway, we’re posting live video and chatting with people from the line over on Kyte.tv. Lots of people have been dropping by and say they are coming back tonight. Already a few CEOs and VCs have been by here (one wanted me to sell her an iPhone — I told her wait in line or go to eBay).

The one problem? Power. I have two batteries and then we’re dead. Anyway, I’m here. Drop by and make fun of me.

UPDATE: we’re on the front page of Palo Alto Online.

  1. Robert,

    I followed your example and my two oldest daughters just had to be a part of mobile device history so now we are here first in line at our local AT&T store in Puyallup, WA huddled under umbrellas in the rain. They are 13 and 11 and so now we get to buy 3 iPhones for the family.

    Have a fun and safe night and enjoy your iPhone!

  3. Can’t wait to see your review of it, Robert.

    Oh, btw, not sure if you’ve been following ZDNet’s blogger coverage of the iPhone-its been a bit controversial, given the negative aspects they have focused on. Now that Kingsley Hughes dude has resorted to moving from critizing the PRODUCT (iPhone), which is legitimate, to attacking anyone interested in buying the iPhone as “Stupid” (The “Stupid Rich”).

    So ZDNet has resorted to attacking users and potential users of a product thru name calling, rather than just reviewing/criticizing a product. Very classy!

    (Note that he doesn’t have an iPhone yet of course)

  5. So are you talent or are you tech. Talent puts you in my union AFRTA, if you opt for tech you could be NABET or CWA. Either way with the amount of air you are hogging, being an AFTRA member would get you talent fees everytime they talked to you. Nabet and CWA you just have to look like you’d break legs. (old joke no offense meant I have worked with both unions)

    The reviews: Mossberg gushes the headline is the Iphone is a breakthrough handheld computer.

    Steve Levy turned WTOP’s news-talk fm here in DC sort of a brownish hue, talking about how great it is.

    I’ve met Walt and I do trust what he wrote. And by the way he has the 1st video on the allthingsd site.

    Yeah got to buy some APPL before it becomes too pricey, this is going to print money for Apple.

    FYI: AT and T is sponsoring the ATT National with Tiger Woods down the road from where I live at the Congressional Country Club in Potomac, I got a PR release yesterday that talks about the PDA device they will give to fans who ask for it to check the PGA tour website for the scores and the IBM shot link information. ( Palm did this when they were a company) And they also will have a broadband app that will allow you to enter into the the AT and T blue room. And by the way Verizon has the area wired for high speed TV and Internet via fiber.
