Friday, June 25

"At first, the master key to the New Birth Baptist Church was missing.

Then, an iPhone, iPad and other random items – more than $1,300 worth – were taken from Bishop Eddie Long’s office.

The incident happened on June 13, according to a DeKalb police report obtained by the AJC. A security camera at the church on Woodrow Road in Lithonia caught most of it on videotape."

This article is very fitting for me today. Yesterday was the launch of the new Apple iPhone-4. I decided to try to be one of those crazy guys and go early in the morning to get one. I was planning on meeting a friend about 45 minutes from my house to wait together. At 2:30am I received a text message from him telling me that there were already over 60 people in line at that location. Knowing I still had another 30 minutes to drive, I quickly changed my mind and got off at the next exit that had an Apple Store. I arrived to the Mall at 2:45am and was surprised that there was already 30 people in front of me waiting to get into the mall.  What I didn't know is that on the other side of the mall there were also hundreds of people waiting to get in as well. At 6:00am they decided to let 10 people at a time from each group, rotating back and forth. Once inside the mall two lines were formed. One for people who had pre-ordered the phone and one line for people like me who had not. The manager came out of the store and explained to use that all the people that pre-ordered the phone would have first priority in receiving them. 14 long hours later I left the mall with two iPhone 4's. This was a personal test of determination!
