“Chris Bank, 24, camped out in a tent with a friend on Stockton Street Monday night in order to secure the first two spaces in line,” Ogg reports. “He says he’s never waited in line before for any gadget, but that this iPhone release is special. ‘I’m finally switching!’ he said Tuesday, holding up his BlackBerry.”
MacDailyNews Take: Have a nice evening PALM, er… RIM.
Ogg continues, “Bank is trying to gather as much attention as he can by Twittering about his exploits live, but that’s also because he has something to sell. Bank has two spots and is trying to rent out the first spot in line along with his tent on Airbnb.com for $200. The highest bidder has the chance to be one of the first to get the iPhone at the Stockton Street store on Thursday morning–and the chance to get photographed by the media, which will swarm him.”
