I wonder why Apple planned to launch the iPhone on July 11th. It's 7-Eleven's anniversary on that day too! Go to 7-Eleven and you can get a free slurpee after you've brought your 3G iPhone.

omg i totally forgot about the 7-11 thing! I remember being invited to a facebook group lol.

It's crazy, people are already camping out a week early for the 3G iPhone! Daniel's main reason for camping out is because he wants to be in the Guinness book of records for waiting the longest in line.

I'm not surprised that people are lining/camping out for the iPhone 3G, that is totally awesome and neat. I can't believe that July 11 is arriving so quickly, it seems like only a couple of days ago that Steve Jobs announced that date and everyone was like, "So long?!" I can't wait to see some unboxing videos of it and what the sales will be like on the first day. Exciting!
