I wonder if I will be grilled for saying, “Americans are crazy”. But I have no choice but to feel that way (particularly for the last 6 hours). Reason: I have been following the iPhone release for that long. And all I can hear everyone and anyone talk about is the iPhone. There are long queues.
TechCrunch is covering it. GigaOm has a series of posts ranging from comparisons between iPod and iPhone to speculates why Edge is not included in the iPhone. Seth learns a lesson from why Verizon turned down the iPhone. And Zooomr’s Kristopher is playing the host live on Ustream.tv. Robert Scoble is in line. And there are lots more.
In India, waiting in queue for a new gadget (or anything new for that matter) to come out is unheard of. Please correct me if I am wrong. And I find it amazing that people would go to such lengths to do this.
Steve Jobs must be so happy! And GigaOm says there is still 5 hours and 16 minutes left.
