Geeks are Already Lining up for the iPhone 5S

People are camping out already

Any time Apple gets ready to launch a new product people start lining up well ahead of any announcement. This is especially true when new iPhones are expected. People will be camped out for weeks in some instances before new devices are actually announced.

CNET reports that four people are already in line and camping out to be the first to get their hands on the iPhone 5S. The people are camping outside of the Fifth Avenue Apple Store in New York. Two of the guys, seen in the photo above, say that they won't have any problem camping out until the September 20 on sale date for the new device.

At least that's the day people are anticipating the next generation iPhones will be available to purchase. No one will actually know when the devices will be available until the official announcement tomorrow. Would you wait days or weeks in line to get an iPhone 5S early?

On PayPal and Apple Pay

Sep 30 2014 7:10pm CDT | Source: Daring Fireball

Ian Kar, writing for Bank Innovation: Apple and PayPal started talking early on in Apple’s development of Apple Pay, as Apple was setting up partnerships with the card issuing banks and card networks. Since PayPal’s a payments industry leader, it would have been shortsighted for Apple to not reach out to PayPal. But while these talks were going on, PayPal went ahead and partnered with Samsung on the Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanner, a move that was reportedly for ...

Apple Watch introduction video updated with tweaked hardware and UI elements

Sep 30 2014 6:15pm CDT | Source: 9to5Mac

Apple re-uploaded its Apple Watch introduction video to YouTube today with a few small changes to the design of the device. It seems the company’s initial renders of the watch were not as accurate as they could have been, as the new version—which also appears on Apple.com now—sports a noticeably smaller screen. @bzamayo The screen becomes shorter http://t.co/DiUMVjT0qI— Khaos Tian (@KhaosT) September 30, 2014 The change, which was spotted by an eagle-eyed 9to5Mac reader, was likely mad ...
