Oh, the glorious launches! How I always look forward to this day. Not only do I get to work from home, but I get to walk around downtown San Francisco, talk to the Apple-heads in line and partake in the glory of another one of Apple's mobile product launches. It's actually really fun, and if you play your cards right you can end up with free breakfast.
I do want to mention, however, that this year's iPhone line seemed really underwhelming compared to the iPad 2 launch earlier this year, or even last year's iPhone 4 debut. But regardless of the number of bodies in line, the numbers of pre-orders prove that more people just decided to go to work today and have the UPS guy drop off their new iPhone, rather than wait in line. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the 4S is just a bump up from its predecessor, or perhaps it's evidence of an economic climate that prevents us from taking time off from work to get our iPhones from the Apple Store. But I'm not going to sit here and get political. Let's go look at the photos!
