Did you wait in line for the iPhone 5s, share your stories!
I have only seen a couple Apple lineups in the past. I was in Seattle during the launch of the iPhone 4S (ironically I was there for a Microsoft job interview). The lineup outside the Apple store was pretty hefty. I think there may have been a lot of developers in the area needing to get it for development purposes.
Up in Edmonton, for the launch this morning, the lineup was minimal. I attribute this for 2 main reasons, one, population type. Although we have a similar amount of people in our respective metropolitan areas, I get the feeling that in Seattle they care about tech more.
Secondly, this is the first time Apple has launched 2 phones simultaneously, and they have allowed pre-orders on the more accessible/affordable one. I think the 5C will easily sell the 5S, and there was no need to line up for a 5C this morning. Thus the lineup was solely for the people who wanted to pay the premium for the 5S device
