I'm with you Synack, it's not like they're going to have a really good, can't miss sale. It'll be the same prices they were all year.

why the hell is it that every time I walk by an apple store there are a bunch of people just standing in there. It's not like their actually buying anything??? reminds me of that Futurama episode about apple brain washing everyone.

My wife and I were walking through the Short Hills mall here in NJ yesterday and there were like 50 people waiting in line outside the Apple store to purchase the iPhone 4s.
I was actually shocked that there was a line this far into the release!

From a business point of view, you probably want your store to be crowded, but from what I've seen most people are in there playing with the devices and it's mostly kids and Apple dweebs. From a consumer point of view, unless I'm buying a phone on launch day or the Apple Store is the only place that is stocking an item I want, I'm not going to the Apple store. Can't stand the crowds.

I'll be the first to the Verizon store for the Galaxy Nexus, that's for damn sure.

Having worked at Verizon Stores for lesser phones launches like the Droid, Storm, and Voyager, there will likely be a crowd, whether there is a line or not before who knows, depends on the store, coonsidering some Verizon stores get lines before they open just normally I wouldn't rule it out.
THat said, rather order it online.

I think this is a horrible idea from a safety standpoint. I mean brilliant from a I want ot show how many zillions of people love Apple or whatever, but you're opening the biggest Apple Store in the world, in Grand Central Terminal, which yes is an active train station. The Crowds are gonna be insane.
