Yeah, I'm really hoping things in the Portland area will be relatively calm, and they wont completely sell out everywhere within the first few hours.
I went over to the Pioneer Square location today to check things out, and there were a lot of people in there (more than usual). I overheard at least 4 different people ask about the iPhone. Of course, most of them were asking if they could buy one (even though the window displays and graphics all over the place said the 29th). So I don't think those kinds of people will be waiting in line.
I've never been to the Bridgeport location, I'll have to go see what that one is like. I'm thinking that will be the least crowded of the 3.
On a side note, I really dig the window displays of the giant iPhones. I work for a company that makes retail window displays and graphics, so I'm kind of a geek for that stuff.
Anyways, maybe I'll see ya on Friday!
