We’re only hours away from the new iPhone 5c and 5s becoming available in Canada, but lineups have already started forming. Above is a pic outside the Toronto Apple Store in the Eaton Centre – which officially will open its doors at 8:00am EST.

Let us know if there’s lineups anywhere else in Canada via our tip line.

Over in Mississauga Square One store, via iPhoneInCanada and Twitter user Steve_Ries, there’s a short lineup forming.

  • Rich

    How many are actual fanboys vs resellers?

    • Zed

      exactly. People don’t seem to realize that most of them lining up will put the iphones on kijiji for 1000$ in the next 5min

    • FKnm

      over past years, apple improved logistics and now they can supply enough iphones to everyone in first day. but people above didn’t realize it yet.

    • Yulet

      Think about it: 100 people buying 1 each to use, 10 people buying 10 each to sell. If there are enough resellers, all iPoopers will not be able to buy from Apple and will buy from resellers. I’m sure iPhone will be out of stock at the end of tomorrow at most places.

    • Guest

      Most of re-sellers sell them overseas… as margins are higher and can cover costs for ticket back home:)

    • Yulet

      So? They’re iPoopers too, what’s different?

    • hunkyleepickle

      this. I remember the 5’s launch, i went into the apple store in downtown Vancouver day of, just to see the madness. The place was jammed with people of ‘eastern’ descent, the apple store was strictly limiting the amount they could buy.

    • Jonathan Schmitt

      Wasnt there a bunch of articles about how the 5S will be limited at launch?

    • Dan L

      Typical Apple launch with no product shipped

    • aftoy

      Duh, we line up to buy it in store, of course no product is shipped. Know it all.

    • BMSMA

      I remember when the Playstation 3 first came out, 10 minutes after they were released they were all over eBay for $1200-1700! I know people did this with iPads, bought multiple units and tossed them up.

    • Jesse Laurin

      the 64GB version is $959+ tax, so $1,083, $1,000 would be losing money..lol

    • Sam

      Steve jobs: you are lining-up wrong

    • BeforeOld

      You made this same joke yesterday about updating the phones wrong. You have no originality, intelligence or sense. Please refrain from posting your garbage in the future.

    • Sam

      if Steve jobs reads your comment he will say your comment is WONG

    • Canadaboy

      Steve Jobs is dead. He is no longer able to read comments.

    • Ibrahim Elmi

      oh oh , we got Sherlock Holmes on the case

    • BB BB

      Lol

    • bembol

      I’m sure Apple knows this so why not limit it to 1 iPhone per customer.

      On the other hand, if it is al about the money than why limit it at 2.

      I’m in no rush but this was a PITA back when I wanted an iPhone 4.

    • PT

      99% are resellers to oversea market. %1 are local fanboys as usual.

  • DravenInc

    luckily, the mall here won’t allow overnight lineups…at least not inside…doors open at 6:30 am.

    • Tony Sarju

      They’ve made exceptions at Eaton Center for the Apple store in recent years.

    • DravenInc

      really? I’m gonna get mine from Rogers anyway, and I’ve already checked with the mall (Apple Store is in the same mall)…they’ve confirmed for me that doors won’t unlock until 6:30, and I’m actually kind of grateful for that, lol…I wouldn’t want to venture out any earlier than that

  • Allan

    iSheep lining up!

    • Patrick

      C’mon BlackBerry 10 everyone!

  • Paul Branchaud

    I don’t advocate violence or crime, but iPhone lineups seem like a mugger’s dream come true.

    • TouchMyBox

      You’d get a lot of yogurt parfaits thrown at you though. :(

    • Tom

      I don’t know about Toronto, but in NYC and some other malls I have seen heightened security during times like these. You’re not going to get G20 security, but there will be more guards/police around the area than normal.

  • Dave

    Here is a line of cowards

  • JVan

    I’m amazed people are still lining up for iphones. Iphones are boring now.

  • Wasim

    These guys are Jobless……See what I did there…I know im a terrible person.

    • Lukeiphone

      Jobless? Where are they getting the money to buy the phone bro? Common sense…

    • Wasim

      Capital J for jobless…its a name..

    • Skazzberry 2.0

      As in without Steve Jobs you clown.

    • Sukdis Knaatz

      Some get the money from their mommy and daddy, and some shouldn’t be buying an iPhone to begin with, because they can’t afford it.

      An individual, who is gainfully employed, will not spend hours in a line-up, because (A) – they are not dumb, and (B) – for them, time is money.

    • FKnm

      Got 3x iphones = 700$ ship for 200$ sell for 1200$-1500$/ea in Russia.
      1300$ profit in one day…. time is money, you are right.

    • hyperhyper

      You’re ‘getting it’ wrong.

    • TiguanT

      I think the world has been Jobless for quite some time.

      I’ll show myself out…

    • BMSMA

      Meanwhile some a-hole in S. Carolina has a ticket for $400 million, now I know where that tax money in the states has been going through this crummy economy.

      – makes me sick.

  • tyresmoke

    Is that an Android robot on the back of the guy’s shirt?

  • Matt Williams

    Osht. I hope they save me a yellow 5c. D:

  • Sukdis Knaatz

    I can’t be the only one actually feeling bad/sad for brainwashed people in those line-ups, can I? (re-sellers aside)

  • dracos

    People who line up for this need to have their lives evaluated/examined. Think about it your lining up for a cellphone for crying out loud.

    • hunkyleepickle

      i would mostly agree with you. I can understand when ppl line up for something, the excitement of something completely new, like the ps4, or a much anticipated movie even. But these yearly incredibly iterative updates to the iphone, come on ppl.

  • TH7

    Looks like a few people called in sick to their part-time jobs, and/or skipped their college classes for the day! Isn’t it 2013? Why are people still lining up for new iterations of a phone they already have easy access to? I don’t understand you, iZombies.

    • Travis

      I’ve never ever understood how someone else doing something that has no effect on another can bother another person so much?

    • Vincent Hamel

      +1

    • Josh Brown

      I never understood how someone can be so effected by someone being effected by something that has no effect on the one being effected that they need to write a big long sentence about something effecting someone about something.

    • Mike Simpson

      WOW Josh is so cool.

    • davedooter

    • BB BB

      It’s OK once their boss finds out the next morning when they’re dumb enough to walk in with their shiny new iPhone they will be fired since the first thing they do is tell everybody that they have a new iPhone.

      Q: How do you tell, somebody has the new iPhone?

      A: Don’t worry they will let you know

      Even funnier…people will bash you and say you can’t afford an iPhone, meanwhile there are plenty of flagships that cost more.. It’s amazing how pathetic and arrogant some people can be with nothing more to fulfill their lives than a phone.

  • Victor_Creed

    The first guy in line is Mike Simpson. He took the night off work at McDonald’s. He was going to order online at 3:01am from his mansion but decided he needed to be there to support Apple.

    • Josh Brown

      I would nominate this for best comment ever if there was an award!

    • Mike Simpson

      ^^^

    • Josh Brown

      What does that even mean?

    • Paul Branchaud

      Looks thinner than I would have expected for a troll

    • Mike Simpson

      Come join me Victor, i will buy you one. I saw you shopping at the dollar store this week.

      Lets not pretend we don’t know each other, Victor is a friend (past) of mine mobile syrup. We used to hang out all the time, but got mad at me because i told him he cant record in my basement anymore :S

      i can’t believe your still holding a grudge.

      and because i was always a fan of Apple, he decided to not be my friend, and dislike everything i have, he even said he doesn’t like Bentley’s anymore :S

    • Josh Brown

      I would love some kind of proof that you infact have a Job let alone any amount of money. Your comments make no sense and sound like a 10 year old wrote them.

    • Mike Simpson

      Victor and I go way back, relax Josh.

      isn’t your real name Joshua?

    • Josh Brown

      It is. Isn’t your real name Michael?

    • Mike Simpson

      no actually. it is mike on my birth certificate, you don’t remember me? i was at your family function a week and a half ago.

    • Josh Brown

      Sorry it was a different family, we haven’t gotten together this year yet. Mike is a simple name.

    • Mike Simpson

      were you not sitting at the table with norma jean? it was her birthday we we’re all gathering for, i don’t understand why you have to make this fake identity and hide the fact you know me for your fans on mobilesyrup.

    • Josh Brown

      Sorry wasn’t at a birthday party and I don’t know any one by Norma Jean.

      “i don’t understand why you have to make this fake identity and hide the fact you know me for your fans on mobilesyrup.”

      I would like to ask you the same.

    • Mike Simpson

      JOSHHHHHH!!! why are you acting this way. i’m going to call you in 10 Minutes so we can straighten this out. I don’t know why you are not just admitting to the people on MobileSyrup.

    • Josh Brown

      Not admitting I know you? I wish I did, I would love to try and figure out how that brain of yours works.

    • Mike Simpson

      do you also have a psychology degree? because i didn’t know you have a Josh Brown Standards for “SLOW” people, and ALSO a psychology degree that allows you to somehow figure out how peoples brains work.

      you are an amazing man Josh Brown.

      i just think its a joke, your playing this game with me, i know your whole family! tell Norma i say hi :)

    • Josh Brown

      Norma died and that is very hurtful that you would joke about that.

    • Mike Simpson

      reply to my Josh Brown Standards comment, i find it hilarious. and we both know Norma didn’t die, i cant believe you would jinx your own mom. LOL funny guy!

    • Josh Brown

      She did actually and she wasn’t my mother she was a friend. She died of liver cancer and that is not funny.

    • Mike Simpson

      lol, your such a joker man. stop jinxing people, norma is a mutual friend, and shes doing just fine, she’s over my place tonight for the iphone launch party.

      i’d invite you over mobile syrup, but i know you would just say no, so i’ll call you later tonight. i called you earlier with no answer, just voicemail. where you at? the computer lounge downtown again? playing WOW still?

    • Josh Brown

      Nope never played WOW, where do I live? if you know me so well you should know.

    • Mike Simpson

      would you like me to post your address online? lol i know you like google and everything, and probably dont stand for privacy..but i still would be hesitant to post my best friends address online… lol … josh common now.

      also don’t lie to all your fans on mobilesyrup, i know your the top commenter man on here, but WOW was your vice for at least a good 5 years now.

    • Josh Brown

      Go for it, doesn’t bother me.

    • Mike Simpson

      lol as a friend, i can’t do it.. i know you dont care about privacy and are all gun-ho for android but i can’t..your still my brother man.

    • Josh Brown

      No I want you to that will prove how well we know each other.

    • Mike Simpson

      how about i come by tonight, when your sleeping? i don’t want to wake norma :)

      if i posted your address you would just say no, no, thats not my address lol, i know yours games Josh, were best friends remember.

    • Josh Brown

      Ok no problem drop by tonight that sounds great.

    • Mike Simpson

      do you ever get off this site? i see your the top commenter on here, thats big things, how do you get so much time off work? or do you work?

  • BMSMA

    Those poor poor bastards, they don’t have anything better to spend money on I guess.

    • Ulysses Grant

      I wonder what they feel a week after getting the phone. Is it really worth doing it?

    • davedooter

      They are probably more focused on their virginity and how after 7 iPhone releases they STILL can’t get laid with the “hey, look what I have. The new iPhone.” line to chicks. That’s f*cking sad and breaks my heart a little.

    • Mike Simpson

      iPhone users always have the hottest girlfriends, and here i thought you were the “thinker” dave.

    • davedooter

      i actually, just dont have a girl, i mean, i’ve been with my mom, but thats the only girl i’ve been with.

    • Emily Nelson

      Awe, you’ve only been with your mom… That’s gross on so many levels. Good luck staying home all day ‘smoking & drinking’ all day. Your ma’ must be so proud! You keep it up little guy! There will one day be a job & maybe a girl just for you!

    • Mike Simpson

      correct. we are rich !!

  • Ryan

    They’re lining up for a finger print reader and a processor, that’s it…for ~$1000

    • realitycheck

      better camera, 2 tone flash, motion processor, better battery(not by much but still), more LTE bands compared to any other phone(this is huge for me). Those features are what people daily drive instead of throwing sh1t on the wall to see what sticks.

    • davedooter

      LOOOOOOOOOL When you put it that way…

  • Christopher Robert

    Look at that huge line…

    I better head to the mall and line up looks like they won’t have enough phones.

    /sarcasm

  • bruteMax

    “…only hours away… but lineups have already started forming.”

    So what is this writer trying to say?, that with the release of the newest iphone imminent, that lineups are only now starting to form? Or am I supposed to infer that lineups have started early for an imminent release?

  • epgomez

    Haha lining up for the same phone as last year. Unbelievable. 64 bit ? The experience is still the same. Not worth it

    • BeforeOld

      If you had bothered to read any of the reviews you would see how ignorant your statement is. It’s not like I expected you to have read them though. You’re probably one of those guys that doesn’t want to see his precious Android device out benchmarked by a device that actually supports 64bit instructions. I feel sorry for you.

    • davedooter

      The fact you typed all that out makes me, and I’m sure most people here, feel sorry for you.

      Get outside and plant a tree or something. Jesus.

    • Mike Simpson

      your in the same boat. “smart” “thinker” dave.

    • davedooter

      i actually type a lot too, so on second thought i was calling the kettle black, i take that back.

    • epgomez

      I feel sorry for you. You have burn dollars every year. Ill stick with my 4s then next year apple will introduce a bigger screen. This year is not worth it. Yeah those reviews from fanboys. They need to please apple to earn money. The review is for you to buy every time even if it doesnt make sense.

  • Guest

    You could buy an i7 haswell desktop cpu for $400, skip the finger print scanner gimmick, keep your iphone 5 and be laughing to the bank with the 300-600 you just saved. Hell, you could buy a new desktop altogether.

    • jeff

      So true.

  • Nyderny

    3 reasons to hate this new iphone … still have only 1gb of ram , still have 326 ppi , still have a 4 inch screen … no real good improvement … wth people are thinking lol …

    • davedooter

      iPhone buyers and ‘thinking’ are never seen in the same place at the same time.

    • Mike Simpson

      Dave your so smart! you clearly “thinking” by commenting something so “dumb” hahah

    • blacks329

      While I can understand the merits behind the complaints of only 1Gb of Ram and a 4inch screen, I’d love hear the reason to complain about it having a 326PPI screen?

  • vn33

    Aside from those who are lining up for business purposes (ie. re-sellers) there will always be people who have more time or money (or both) on their hands.
    Unfortunately, most of us have more common sense, less time, and less money than that !

  • HelloCDN

    Yeah, just a reminder for haters – Samsung launches, as well as big video game releases, also have people lining up days before. Some people just like doing it. You don’t like iPhone – move along, who are you to judge what people do and don’t do with time or money?
    That being said, I’ve never really understood lining up like this, but whatever works for people, as long as they’re happy. I always order my tech stuff online, but if some people like retail experience – let them be.

    • davedooter

      Video game early releases are fun, as in you get to play the game as soon as possible.

      iPhone early releases are just sad as you waited in line to… import your contacts and apps? That’s the closest to being the saddest thing I’ve ever heard.

    • davedooter

      i take this back guys. sorry, i wasn’t thinking straight when i posted this. i was drunk and high :(

    • HelloCDN

      I fail to see the difference. In both cases people line up to be among first ones to get their hands on something. To feel special? Or because they really like it? I don’t know, and honestly don’t care.
      But there is completely no difference.

  • stann

    Those people are pretty late for the party. It’s been quite a while since the iPhone was something to be excited about.

    • jeff

      Same people have to rush home for their survivor party

  • Samuel Gomez Recuero

    well, they should not allow more than 2 per household on launch day

  • RobbersWireless

    Apple is so stupid. The 5S was already barely an upgrade to begin with so they decided to add a gimmicky finger print reader to help justify the 5S’ existence. Now they have a huge shortage because it was too hard to produce. I’m hearing 50% less iPhone 5S available for this launch vs iPhone 5’s last year. This phone can’t compete with Android flagships TODAY in real world usage AND it’s more expensive. You’d have to be out of your mind to buy one. If you want an iPhone so bad then buy an iPhone 5 before they are gone and replaced with the PLASTIC iPhone 5C. They’re on sale for $130. Or get an HTC One, the best phone out there, for the SAME PRICE!

    • Ulysses Grant

      It is always been a gimmick since the beginning. It has to be that way to entice people to use the device.

    • RobbersWireless

      Whats always been a gimmick? The 5S or the iPhone period? If you’re saying the iPhone period, I disagree. The iPhone 5 is an amazing piece of tech, and most iterations before that had better useability than any Android phone. I used a 3G/3GS/4/4S and just recently switched to an HTC One a couple months ago.

    • Ulysses Grant

      HTC is a one amazing piece of device. That one I will have to agree.

    • Mike Simpson

      HTC is a one amazing piece of device? what?

    • Ulysses Grant

      awww… sorry to disappoint you fanboy.

    • Mike Simpson

      what?

    • davedooter

      horrible english skills.

    • Ulysses Grant

      Sure…whatever you say :)

    • BB BB

      So true. If you need a new phone and are an Apple diehard by all means go ahead and get one, but the rest of the world doesn’t give a damn. Why does this make the news? These are the same kind of sheep that lineup outside of Tiffany on Valentines Day. Their lives are so fulfilled by buy a piece of aluminum.

  • ns.dev

    Be prepared for short staffed Starbucks.

    • jeff

      You just won the comments ha ha

  • Mike Simpson

    where is the line up for android phones? …. oh, thats right…. there is never a line up for any android phone… :(

    • davedooter

      You just proved Android users aren’t total dumb asses.

    • Mike Simpson

      DAVE the “thinker” !!! always the most intelligent man in the room… or internet board room… lol

    • davedooter

      actually, your right Mike. i’m not thinking at all.

  • burninskulz

    For everyone harking on about “$800-$900″ phone will conveniently forget three key things

    1) In Canada, basically everyone buys on contract
    2) Samsung and HTC flagship phones cost the same
    3) A product is only worth what people are willing to pay for it. Simple economics

  • HowardJohnsonJr

    will people be lining up for the new blackberry z30? lolololololol

  • Paul Figueiredo

    An open letter to people in line:

    If you honestly think a finger-print scanner is worth the extra hundred dollars on a contract over the price drop we’ll see on the old iPhone 5, then you deserve to be ripped off.

    Apple is laughing at you.

    • Mike Simpson

      i actually think APPLE is laughing at YOU, Paul Figueiredo

  • beyond

    I want to line up for ice cream!

  • Mike Simpson

    where is the line up for android phones? …. oh, thats right…. there is never a line up for any android phone… :(

    • Josh Brown

      Because Android fans are not stupid enough to call in sick and risk losing their jobs to get a phone.

    • Mike Simpson

      maybe iphone fans (since people who purchase phones must be fans of something…according to josh brown of course)

      are so rich we can afford a day off. :O

    • Josh Brown

      Maybe but I doubt it. Most people that have iPhones work for a living. Most work in retail making minimum wage and shouldn’t be paying that much for a phone.

    • Josh Brown

      Do you really upvote yourself because no one else will? That is just sad. What you should do with all your riches is pay people to up vote you.

    • Mike Simpson

      thanks for the idea Josh Brown. did you come up with that on your own?

    • Josh Brown

      I did. I can be the first on your pay roll. I can use some extra cash, maybe then I can afford one of those over priced iPhones you are always going on about.

    • Mike Simpson

      lol, good man!!! finally coming over and understanding, iphone = moneyyyyyyyy.

      josh brown = funnnnyyyy

    • Josh Brown

      So when do I start getting paid? I am ready to start up voting!

    • Mike Simpson

      thats what i like to hear!! just send me your SIN, and bank account info, ill direct deposit every thursday!! :)

    • Josh Brown

      Just Western union to my address in Nigeria, you know the one.

    • Mike Simpson

      i know your broke and don’t have so much money, but don’t tell everyone on mobile your doing that fraud stuff…NSA is all over the place…

      i’d rather you just send me your SIN. please send your SIN, big talker. lol mobilesyrup’s biggest fan. :P

    • Josh Brown

      Why do you want my sin number to make a direct deposit?

    • Mike Simpson

      thats what you have to provide when you get a job silly… i can tell you have not had one in a while.

    • Josh Brown

      We will do it as contract work, no need to pay WSIB for me, it will be cheaper for us in the long run. Just send me the check to my address that you say you know.

    • Mike Simpson

      your so boring josh. hows WOW?

    • Josh Brown

      I’m an AOE3 kinda guy. Old but a classic. WOW is just too nerdy for me.

    • Mike Simpson

      when i came over last week you were playing WOW with norma, dont you remember?

    • Josh Brown

      Nope I was playing AOE3

    • Mike Simpson

      just send me your SIN and bank account info, ill get right on that.

    • Ulysses Grant

      Josh, like I told you many times. You should leave Mike alone. He is not going to stop and I can picture his face fuming… Don’t let his dad come to your house cause you hurt Mike’s little feeling.

    • Ulysses Grant

      Awww.. stop trolling Mike. Its not even unique.

  • Josh Brown

    The only reason people do this is to have bragging rights that they had it first.

    What they don’t realize is that no one cares.

    • Mike Simpson

      incorrect, Josh Brown doesn’t care. and thats perfect, because we dont care about Josh Brown either :)

    • Josh Brown

      I don’t care what phone we are talking about no one cares if I got it an hour before you did. No one, except those lonely people in the line.

    • Mike Simpson

      either way, what makes you think any person reading these comments wants to hear what your opinion is? its clearly negative, so save it. i know guys get this way when they can’t stand their wife anymore, but dude you need to relax. We used to be friends. You dont remember me?

    • Josh Brown

      You are a weird person. Your comments are so off the wall I have a hard time figuring out if you are slow or trolling us.

    • Mike Simpson

      “I are a weird person. Your comments are so off the wall I have a hard time figuring out if you are slow or trolling us.”

      sorry, what? i dont even know what a troll is? is that android talk?

    • Josh Brown

      So you are slow then?

    • Mike Simpson

      i guess by Josh Brown standard. Good thing Josh Brown is such a known standard amongst Canadian people.

      i can’t believe you don’t remember me, i know your wife and kids.

    • Josh Brown

      Sorry don’t have kids it must be a different Josh Brown that you know.

      So you are saying you are slower than the average person?

    • Ulysses Grant

      Josh, I have to agree with you. Mike is a 15 year old Apple fanboy who gets hurt when people talked bad about Apple.

    • Mike Simpson

      Comment in another post, your clearly not a fan. no need for your negativity Josh.

    • Ulysses Grant

      Yeah Josh, please don’t hurt Mike’s feeling. He is a huge Apple fan.

  • Jake

    Looks like you don’t understand that he would never buy one. Also, it’s “you’re”.

    • Mike Simpson

      thanks jake the snake! your the spelling B champion!!

  • Ulysses Grant

    As a Canadian, I can, therefore, conclude that not all Canadians are smart.

    • Mike Simpson

      Great assumption. Do you think you can conclude that for any other country in the world? that at least 1 member of a country is not smart? what is your definition of smart? is that the standard? did Ulysses set that standard?

      I think this statement is great, because your leading my example! and setting a great president!!

      with a name like Ulyssess, sure sounds like you were born in Canada…

    • Liberal Phone Person

      setting a great president. ROFL my sides!

    • Ulysses Grant

      Mike, are you telling me that my parents had no right to name me Ulysses because I was born in Canada? Sorry, perhaps my parents never thought of boring names like Mike.. How many Canadians are named Mike?

  • Michael

    Absolute, blinded-by-marketing, moronic fanboys. IOS is the most antiquated OS on the market today. BB10 is the future people. Open your eyes, do some research and stop listening to a media trying to kill BlackBerry.

  • Justin Crowley

    i love cell phones and gadgets as much as the next guy, but unless its black Friday or boxing day and there is something that is 90% off, i will never line up like this, go back to work, make yourself useful, you know all these people walking by are laughing at you, not with you right? come on people

    • Mike Simpson

      please prove that Justin Crowley?

  • mad

    baaaaaah

    • mwahahahaha

      Baaaa aaa aaaaaaa? Baaa aahaaaa baa baaaa !

    • Mike Simpson

      sounds like you guys have the case of androidittbittibrain.

  • OMFCody

    We usually don’t even run out of stock here in NL. My brother walked in Telus on the launch day of the iPhone 5 around 2PM and walked out 20 minutes later with one.

  • Rawrrr

    Didn’t know people still bought iPhones. Can’t they just get through carriers? O_o

    • Mike Simpson

      People buy them for full pop $720+ tax for the 16gb. We love it, no big deal, i can afford about 50 iphone’s just on 1 months pay.

      im the guy sitting in the picture! :)

    • Shane Kweens

      Troll fool!

    • Ulysses Grant

      Awww dude, Mike Simpson will get pissed when he read your message..wait for his comment in 3…2…1

    • Rawrrr

      Lol that’s not my concern.

      I’m just wondering why people would spend that much money when they can get it from carrier for cheaper..sucks to be you if you’re locked down to carrier! Lol

  • nig gie

    Anyone rettarded to actually sit in line is

    1) too stupid to use Android

    2) too stupid to use anything other than fisher price UI

    3) probably cannot drive a manual car because of said stupidity…

    • Mike Simpson

      great, there is only 1000 things wrong with everything you just said!!! would you like a participation award. generation y. and nig gie, lol. you sound like a bunny too.

    • Josh Brown

      You forgot to upvote yourself, Mike!

    • Mike Simpson

      it takes time to show. i can see you just ignore all the good statements i make and move on. lol. you cant argue anything, your not quick on your mind what so ever. if anything, Josh Brown is slow. but the new slow-mo feature will be perfect on the iphone i get you.

      JOSH BROWN FOR MOBILESYRUP PRESIDENT!

    • Ulysses Grant

      Josh Brown for mobilesyrup president, he gets my vote.

    • Ulysses Grant

      LOL.. Mike wanted to feel good. Please give it to him. I am begging you Josh…

    • Josh Brown

      I am just messing with him.

    • Ulysses Grant

      I think we all did…that’s it for me. :)

  • davedooter

    Why keep waiting in line though? There are 4 of them waiting. At some point logical thinking would kick in and the realization that the store probably has more than 4 devices should have made them think “screw this, I’ll come back in the morning.” and leave.

    Then again it’s Apple fans we’re talking about. They have no logic.

    No one actually lines up for Apple products anymore because there is no scarcity and or high demand. They are readily available in the morning for all 6 moms, 3 teenage girls, and the random clueless fat guy who shows up when the doors open.

    To each their own. Good for them, I guess.

    • Mike Simpson

      and the logic you display by generalizing a group of people as “apple fans” and “lack of logic” is pretty funny Dave.

      i guess “android fans” are the only people with true logic right? ….

      I think you should get out more, its like the pot calling the kettle black.

    • Emily Nelson

      Amen!! Finally!!

    • davedooter

      sorry guy’s i take that back. i actually love Apple, and you can spot me sitting second in line.

  • ActivesiN

    if they want to line up that’s fine by me, each one is one less person I need to compete with to get the next Nexus device

    • Mike Simpson

      dont worry. you wont have to compete with anyone!!!

    • Ulysses Grant

      Geesh dude, give yourself a break. Do you really need to reply to each comment people made in this forum? You are one sad little boy. I guess your teacher did not give you homework this week. Must be a little slow in your grade 8 class.

  • Stuntman06

    No lines at the Richmond store.

  • BB BB

    There’s plenty of stock everyone. Relax your new iPhone has been shipped several weeks ago straight out of foxconn awaiting your $$$. Apple does this every year its their way of creating synthetic demand and popularity or some sense of urgency to buy their precious iPhone. If its sold out big deal you can get a unlocked and sealed iPhone 5 on kijiji and have relatively the exact same experience and keep $400 in your pocket.

  • Paul

    This thought may be stupid, but doesnt the mall close soon? Do they just sleep inside? get kicked out?

    • Günter Schwarz

      I’ve been wondering the same thing.

  • jonnny

    Most of them will be scalpers

  • HoodedDemon

    Losers!

  • jonnny

    The fat bald guy is a stereotypical scalper. Short, fat, bald, with a huge gut.

  • AC88

    Line ups all around the world: Well, I guess that’s one thing that Samsung won’t copy.

  • kakarot11

    lame…. cannot wait to sleep in my bed tonight :)

  • Billy

    The sad part about these people is that they probably already have the iPhone 5 (which they also probably lined up for) and that they are paying $700-950 on something that is exactly the same phone (5C) minus the nice aluminum shell, and the other will load their apps 0.3 seconds faster.

    But that is why they are called sheep…

  • Josef Izchaki

    i am sure they are all thinking, we look like those i****s in the Samsung commercials :)

  • Striker67

    Good lord people its a phone!!!

  • AReid

    The only thing you’ll ever catch me lining up for is…….CASH!

  • BR

    Awww the iHerders flock the iSheep in solid formation!

  • graze81

    LOL, how come none of the Apple Store employees slapped the customers on the a*s like football players do?

  • Brice Johnson

    Baaaa! BAAAAA!

    Even if you NEED to buy an iPhone 5S/C, just wait a week…why do people have the obsessive need to get everything first?

    • HelloCDN

      Feel good about yourself? Jesus, reading comments here is like reliving middle school again.

    • Brice Johnson

      Oh yes, much worse than reading your snide, arrogant drivel where virtually 100% of your comments are formulated with the sole purpose of ‘informing’ people that they are wrong. I much rather have an opinion and face the consequences of voicing said opinion than acting the part of a complete coward and waiting in the weeds argue for the sake of arguing. Have fun with that.

    • HelloCDN

      Well, voicing your opinion as “Baaa. Baa” clearly says a lot about your intellectual abilities. Have fun with that.

    • Brice Johnson

      Of course you would just requote what I have said, not reiterate whatsoever followed by repeating what I said to finish word for word. Safe to say you’re not the intellectual challenger that you perceive yourself as. Enjoy convincing everyone your smart, you’re well on your way bud. I’ll even let you have the last word.

    • HelloCDN

      How gracious of you to let me have it. You can tap yourself on the shoulder for that.

  • Zee

    That video of people running in and high-fiving employees is embarrasing.

  • GJ

    Anyone that still does this and doesn’t plan on reselling… wow just wow

  • Avgvstvs

    Wow.

  • YJK

    Ottawa , St Laurent Shopping Center.

    Only adds about phone and more than usually sales people. Nobody i lining up

  • Dewey Mai

    Apple is the new Dickens

  • Jerry S

    Look at all the geeks and dorks standing outside those Apple shops.
