    Apple hasn't even hinted it plans to announce the iPhone 6 during its press event in Cupertino, California on September 9, but that is not stopping some professional "phone sitters" from creating their own line outside the New York City Fifth Avenue Apple retail store to purchase the phone.

    In past years, some people have been paid so wait in line by companies for advertising purposes.

    I guess... Not sure what amount of money we would have to be talking about to sit outside for a week.

    Oh I agree. Probably not enough money for me to do it anyway.
    And more than a week assuming they stay there until release date not just announcement date.

    They are professional "sitters". They get paid to sit in line for others. Would you pay someone to sit in line for you?

    I wonder what would happen if the store deemed another line to be the ONE line...

    Not for me, but the amount of money some of those people get paid for those first spots in line is enough to make it worth while, especially if you had nothing else better to do (and were unemployed). Last year the first person in line at one of our local Atlanta stores was paid $1,500 for the spot. That's almost enough to buy two 64GB models outright...

    More power to 'em! If they're not hurting anyone, why does it matter, right? I'm going to wait in line, but not this early haha

    On a side note: those 2 guys that sold their seats for $1250 each (blue shirt guys in the picture) were the same 2 guys in line in first and second place last year, advertising for "sellyourmac.com" or something like that.

    I'm not thinking about it either way, to be honest. Still, for the sake of this conversation, let's say that they are being paid by Apple for advertising purposes. More power to them. If they're out there and are not getting paid, more power to them....
