    will they allow people to buy 10 at once? or 5 to make it little harder?

    The cops/immi should start rounding up and deporting these S. Asians (Queuers). They are a goddamn nuisance at every launch event these days.

    I took some pics of the line. Probably about 100-200 people milling about on the Star Ferry bridge waiting for Apple to announce and "official line". Cops were out trying to keep them orderly (there is trash all over from where they were sleeping).

    Better that they deport the idiot who runs Apple HK and foments and encourages these debacles by allowing the sale of 5-10 units.

    These guys are at all product launches regardless of how many units are sold (not just Apple).

    I am also sure the guy running Apple is legally here on a work visa or is a local unlike these S Asians (Queuers).

    I'm here legally thank you very much.

    BTW if anyone wants an "official" HK iphone 4s on Friday morning, do let me know. Will give you good price and will throw in a free copy watch. Also, I will offer a HK$10 discount for a suit at my cousin's tailor shop.
