The Return of the Professional Man on the Street

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 5:36 am

Guess who’s first in line for the new iPhone?

The Sydney Morning Herald reports:

To claim his 15 minutes of fame, Greg Packer started queueing to be among the first paying customers in the world to own an Apple iPhone a full 101 hours before the much-hyped mobile phone goes on sale on Friday evening.

. . . .

Packer, who says he’s an Apple fan despite not owning an iPod or a Mac, says he intends to hang on to the phone rather than try selling it for a profit.

Packer, the Apple Fan, is also a serial media hound. He’s a fan of whatever is hot right this moment.

And, God help us all, now he’s blogging about it.

Previous Packer sightings here.

  4. If I were ever asked my name in a man on the street interview, I would feel compelled to say, “Greg Packer”.
    Wouldn’t you?
