Tomorrow is the big launch at good ol Best Buy, and i'm scheduled to be setting up people's email all day (Walk-Out-Working... BBY loves acronyms). The goal is to set up email, answer questions about GPS, and set up a bluetooth device all in under 5 minutes each... yeah, i know.

Anyway, i have a feeling i'll be writing this URL down for many people...

I'm assuming the launch of the sales of the 3G iPhone? If so, best of luck to you man because I have a feeling it's going to be a bit more tedious than that.

it's ok, i'm irresistible across genders.

anyway, work was hilarious today. I got to the store at 9:30am (we open at 10), and there were three groups of people waiting outside the store for...









...wait for it...









...our wii shipment.

I didn't setup a single iPhone all day. I know we sold a few, but it was nowhere near the blockbuster day they thought it was gonna be.

so wait, now, the 3G is sold with a contract in-store, or is it take-home activation?

so today i actually set one up for a customer, and also showed her a few tips to get her started...

the first thing i noticed when i began entering her email settings was the yellower screen.... not really a big fan of that whether it's more "natural" or not.
