    Nothing against apple, i have their products but whenever i see video of their launches when a new model of a product is out i cant help but laugh cause it just seems lame and cheesy. The red carpet, The constant woot woot, pig snorting, clapping, high fiving, apple staff running to the store from the outside just seems cheesy.

    Im sorry, i dont mean to offend anyone but you would never catch me in one of those crowds. I have too much self respect and i would be embarassed being around all those sewer rats.

    If you dont know what im talking about.

    Then you wouldn't sit in line for 12 hours and feel the appreciation apple and their staff show by handing out water and snacks, and yes, high fiving us as we walk in because we're dead set on getting our hands on the next product that day no matter how tired we are, instead of sweating out our angst of having to wait here in the forums :) High five to all of you who shared your time and experiences running between best buys and waiting for your packages. Woohoo!

    Thanks, and yes it seems a bit over the top. Still this is the Managment style of Apple. The enthusiasm, Steve on stage with jeans and turtleneck......

    It is all part of it and it seems to be working.

    I find all marketing to be over the top and lame.

    I agree but isn't this normal for Americans. The British aren't so out there like them. Unless you are American. I expect if you were excited to get your hands on the device, you would join in though, just through pure excitement.

    I didn't.
    But I did walk away feeling enormously smug......
    Well I owed it to myself :)

    Actually the hardest part was exercising self control while my family gently teased me on the new acquisition. I just wanted to rip it open and fire it up, but instead I sipped a glass and indulged in some relaxed social intercourse........that's true grit.
