Wozniak Taking "Cuts" for iPhone 3G

What would you say if Steve Wozniak and his entourage cut in line in front of you?  Anything?

What would you say, on the other hand, if they tried to "pretend" they waited in line overnight, for good PR, and THEN cut in line?

In fact, according to Doug and Patrice Broussard, Woz actually never waited in line at all. The couple, who were there, said the Apple co-founder lounged on some of the mall's nearby sofas for about four hours and then ambled up to the front of the queue when the store opened at 8 a.m and simply cut in line. No discussion.

And he wasn't alone. He had his posse in tow, say the Broussards, who photographed the Woz playing big shot. Didn't anybody say anything?

No. Doug Broussard said it all happened too quickly and, well, who's going to send the creator of the Apple II to the end of the line?

Still, the Broussards said the people who saw it were unhappy.


Readers, what do you think?  We wouldn't expect the creator of the Apple to wait, but to pretend as a PR move?

perhaps he wasnt supposed to wait in line, it could be that he was supposed to be the first one to get it via an agreement with the store...
having waited in line for lots of stuff, sh!t happens. people cut, people get pissed off. as long as every body gets what they want though its fine.

He should have just picked one up from the shipping department. It's pretty absurd for him to even try to wait in line, and not at all nice for the loyal fans who did.

He probably wouldn't know where the shipping department is, since he hasn't actually worked at Apple for 20 years. Oh, they still pay him - but I think it's because he owns so many shares that no one dares fire him.

Old and inaccurate news. Woz wanted to wait in line but apparently the folks at the apple store told him to come back when the store opened and they would let him in. He offered to the first one or two folks to go in front of him and his crew. Source TWIT # 151 last five mintues
