TechwareLabs has published a editorial on the iPhone 3G Disaster Release:
The staff of TechwareLabs likes to stay up to date with all of the latest electronics and their releases. On June 9th, 2008 we were so excited for the release of the new and highly anticipated iPhone 3G. Day in and day out we checked for any new press releases, in hopes that apple would break their normal oath of silence concerning new products. As usual, and for some obvious reasons Apple neglected to release anything. Nevertheless, to assure that TechwareLabs got the opportunity to do a full detailed review, we waited in line. Mike Lynch and myself (Dan Shannon) arrived at our local mall on Thursday July 10th at 9:00pm, and were surprised to be the first in line. About 10 minutes later the masses began to arrive and man were we lucky. We sat outside of the store with roughly 150 people until the mall allowed us to enter at 6:00am. We had to endure everything! One of which was there was a lady whom tried to cut in front of us even though the other 100 people clearly informed her that she was standing at the wrong end of the line..
