Apple iPhone 4 launches

We spotted people standing outside the Apple Store in Manhattan’s Meat Packing District yesterday, waiting for their new Apple iPhone 4. (The cabbie shouted, “Why are all those people standing in line?!!!) Later on TV news, we watched as Apple employees actually cheered customers as they entered the store, which begins to make this a cult we wonder if we want to be a part of. We’re still waiting for the iPhone to be hooked up with Verizon–which is still the world’s best cellphone system in terms of quality and coverage. Speaking from personal experience, Verizon has worked all around the world, including Africa, India, Mexico, even Tokyo (where nothing works). iPhone plus Verizon? That’s an app worth talking about.
