Matt Mullenweg, who is here in London (speaking at my conference) convinced me that we should queue-up and get a new iPhone 5s phone. Instead of picking Regent Street store or the one on Covent Garden, we went to the store in Stratford (which is sort of the place we know from London Olympics) because we thought it would be less crowded. So off we went…at 6 am in the morning after being out till wee hours of the morning. Clearly, lack of sleep has made me cranky.
PS: Friends who lined up outside Regent Street store say there were about 600 people and another iPhone nut reported over 500 people at the Covent Garden Store.
