Even here, in the somewhat technologically backward Long Beach California, there was a queue of about 20 people at our main AT&T store. I should point out that even though this is the 5’th largest city in California, there are no Apple stores within 20 miles. That alone should prove my point of us being a little behind here. So that’s why people were forced to line up in front of the AT&T store. Since the line wasn’t too bad, I was extremely tempted to take a spot in line. However, while shopping in the Rite-aid just minutes before, I heard an old James Taylor song, reminding me that I need a Martin dx1 acoustic guitar much more than I need an iPhone.
