New versions of Apple’s iPhone went on sale last Friday.
The High Tech Texan, Michael Garfield, says he understands the lines, but he's never stood in one of them.
“People do want to have the latest and greatest things,” Gardfield says, “but I think the next big version - where they're really going to line up - is probably next year for the iPhone 6.”
Think of this: Garfield says every time something new comes out, the first ones are where all the bugs are found. He thinks you ought to wait a couple weeks before you go get the latest big deal.
He explains, “I always tell people, anytime something new comes out, there's going to be a few bugs, there's going to be a few fixes, and so there's really no reason to be the first in line unless you want to be Mr. Show-off on the Block."
There were long lines Friday at AT&T, Apple and Best Buy stores. Those were the people who couldn’t wait.
