The lines, media frenzy and general geekiness surrounding last Friday's iPhone launch were nothing less of awe-inspiring. I can honestly say I have never seen 1,000 people ogling a single gadget with such curiosity, adoration and desire. While I spent the day reporting from the Apple Store in downtown San Francisco, I asked any of you who were participating in the madness to share your stories as well. And, while not all of you were able to take the day off work to get your hands on the iPhone, geeksugar reader and resident Mac expert, macgirl was quick to share details of her whole day - from the line at the Apple Store in Newport Beach, Ca to her unboxing. Her photos compare the iPhone to her Treo and offer those of you that haven't had a chance to see it in person a brilliant sneak peek at the phone. She reports: "First let me start out by saying it is way neater than I could have ever imagined. The fact that you couldn't play with it ahead of time made it even better. I felt like Jack in Nightmare Before Christmas 'what's this??!??'" I couldn't agree more.
