The queue for the i: iPhone 4S hits the streets

John Moe Oct 14, 2011

People are lining up to be the first to get their hands on the new iPhone 4S that comes out today. It happens with most new Apple devices, and certainly with its phones, but people seem especially eager this time around, because of Steve Jobs’ death. It’s almost like an impromptu public memorial, but with mourners/celebrators paying a couple hundred bucks for the privilege.

First in line at the San Francisco store? Steve Wozniak.
