So the new iPad has already made its way into the hands of consumers worldwide (in launch countries, at least), and it never ceases to amaze me that each new iteration of an Apple device these days seem to see longer and longer queues, not to mention folks camping out far earlier than expected. In fact, you will find many a scalpers as well in line, where some folks in London are being paid money just to line up, and those spots in the line will then be ‘sold’ to others who can afford the price, obviously lending more credence to the adage, “time is money”.
In fact, an enterprising 16-year old known as Noah Green who was fourth in the queue outside the Apple Store in London’s Regent Street, realized that he could make a quick £300 – by dropping just 14 places in line. That ought to cushion the blow to his bank account when he picked up his iPad, don’t you think so? What do you think of such queues as well as the purchase of spots?
