The Return of the Professional Man on the Street
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.
