This was the scene at the Apple store at The Mall of America in Minnesota this morning. They were clearly expecting crowds. It's pretty sad. Safe to say "Epic Fail" at something like this, but considering this was a record breaking sales day  for Verizon, it's difficult to believe.
I live near a few different Apple stores and I have never walked by one that was this empty. I mean, people line up to get into these stores on any average day.
I ended up breaking down and buying an iPhone last year finally after avoiding it for years. I still think it's a shitty phone, but a brilliant device. I would never move to Verizon unless their prices came down to close to what I pay now. I have had AT&T (Cingular) since 2005, but never bought an iPhone until after the iPhone4 had been out for awhile.
Since the first iPhone was released, I kept hearing nothing but rumors and wishes that the device would come to Verizon. Now that it's here, it doesn't seem like anyone really cared that much.
My next phone will probably be a Windows7 Phone.
Here's how everyone sees people with Apple products:
"Look at me! I'm an annoying cock!"
