Crazy long lines in front of Apple stores just for iPhone 5? Tomorrow, it might be even crazier, to see more long line, for anywhere that got stock of iPhone 5 to sell? I know, I should not be writing about people are so crazy of camping for a week or so outside of Apple store to get their hands on iPhone 5, because I was also crazy to pre-order iPhone 5 even though the shipment of this shiny, smart phone is being pushed back for 2 week long. Nonetheless, at least I’m too lazy to go crazy to the point of worshiping the Apple God by camping outside Apple store. Had never done so, and probably will never do so. How come? Siri isn’t even a real girlfriend yall! Anyhow, I chuckled every time I read another article this week which mentioned the crazy things people would do to get their hands on iPhone 5. Nonetheless, I must admit that there are some smart public stunts out there that have got the press talking about their stunts. How about camping outside Apple store first to get an interview by the press of some sort so one can advertise one’s own business brand? I think that’s smart for doing things on a shoestring advertising budget, but might generate huge, both online and offline, social buzz. Anyhow, here are some of the articles — in relation to the crazy things that people do to get their hand on iPhone 5 — I would like to share with you right after the break. Enjoy!!!

Afterthought: Perhaps, I’m more hardcore than those who camp outside of Apple store. I’m willing to wait patiently for the iPhone 5 to arrive at my doorstep. It takes a lot of strength to do that. I don’t even know if this is a sarcastic, self serving, arrogant admission or not, but it does sound super cool.
