What up, my Kiwis?
I’m feeling rather alone, out here, but it’s totally okay, because at 10AM New Zealand time, the Apple Store here will be opening, and selling the first iPhone 5s. Ever.
Right now, it’s pretty cold. Although, apparently, it’s 15 degrees. Definitely doesn’t feel like it.
If you were following my journey posts, then you’ll know where I’m up to now. If not, lemme help catch you up to speed:
I arrived in Sydney at 8:10PM, local time. After catching all the trains and stocking up on supplies, I made it to the Apple Store at about 9. Then I followed the queue all the way around the block, and took my position as 101. Then, I sat there. For hours. And hours.
Most recently, there have been teams of people setting up barriers, dividing the footpath in two – one side for the queue, and one side for thoroughfare. Now, I have two and a half hours left to wait.
I’m finally in range of Wi-Fi, although I think a lot of people are using the same one, so it might cut out a bit. This means I can finally be live on Twitter, until I tell you all that I’m going to crash somewhere. Follow @iphonewzealand, and ask me whatever questions that you have. I’ll be here as much as this Wi-Fi lets me.
