In case you have been living under a rock, today is the official release day of the highly anticipated device of all devices- the iPhone! If you plan on getting your hands on an iPhone you better step away from the computer, pack a lunch, water and some snacks and make your way to an Apple or AT&T/Cingular store.
I've put together a simple iPhone Release Guide with links to some of the best recourses on the web, including Gridskipper, who has created a series of "Ultimate Campout Guides" for Old Town Pasadena, SF Stonestown, NYC Fifth Avenue, LA Century City, SF Downtown and NYC Soho.
AT&T has hired 2,000 temporary workers to handle the expected crowds and will close down locally at 4.30 p.m. on Friday to prepare for the launch, then reopen at 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.
Whatever you do, don't follow professional line man Greg Packer's example and please keep your shirt on. Of course, don't forget to take lots of photos from the line and with your new phone and share them with us! To learn how to post your photos in the Geeky Things I Love group,
