Tiger launch

Some pics from my Treo [hence poor quality] of the crowd at the Apple store in Chestnut Hill (just west of Boston). I got there around 5:35, and got in line (first two pics). There were a couple of reporters and photographers buzzing around, asking people who had laptops to fetch them out and “do something”. The guy in front of me had a Compaq tablet PC that he was trying not to draw attention to…. The doors opened on cue at 6:00. Everybody got a “Scratch and win” card: mine was worth a one-song iTunes download. After hanging out and chatting for a while, I left at 6:20, and the line was longer than ever (third pic).
