And all this time I thought people stupidly actually waited inline for Apple products! Some are paid to do it! What a great marketing scheme!

i will queue up if i were paid like this guy, even though i don't give a rat's a$$ about iPad as much as this guy does.. that $1000 would be a few weeks of life for me..

I would wait in line to get paid. That guy's pretty smart too saying Tablets are fads.
