Here’s a fun fact for you: Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak was one of the first in line waiting for his iPhone 4s; because that is, after all, how you get the coveted new gadget on the block.
The Apple co-founder was waiting with the masses on the day of the iPhone’s release in order to ensure he was among the first hands to touch the new iPhone 4S.
Wozniak and his trusty Segway showed up at his local Apple store in Los Gatos Thursday and he said that he was planning to stay overnight. He added he already has two phones coming to his house, but he doesn’t mind hanging out for one more for his wife.
This is not Wozniak’s first rodeo. He’s waited in many-a-line to get his hands on Apple products. In 2007, he waited at Valley Fair for more than nine hours alongside other Apple fans.
Wozniak was one of a about five people who were in line around 2 p.m. on Santa Cruz Avenue in downtown Los Gatos.
Thursday he said he planned to pass the time by getting caught up on his email, when not chatting with fans, who were already flocking to take a picture, or share a story with the Apple co-founder.
When we asked him if what he was going to do if he needed to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, he said he had no bathroom plan as of yet, but generally people are pretty easy-going in line, and know if someone is trying to cut or not.
He said in the past he’s always been willing to wait in line, but often fans in line insist he go ahead.
