Also, at least some locations are now giving customers rainchecks for the day’s iPhone 3G stock,” Aidan Malley reports for AppleInsider.
“The company’s availability page now tells customers that stores that normally open at 10 A.M. will now open at the new time and are adding new employees to their ranks to process customers at a faster rate,” Malley reports.
“‘To accommodate demand for iPhone 3G, all Apple Retail Stores will now open at 8:00 a.m. every day but Sunday,’ Apple says. ‘We’re also adding staff to help you get up and running as quickly as possible,'” Malley reports.
