It may just be the fact that my legs are on fire from standing so long, but what are some other ways Apple could have sold the iPhone that would have made it easier on consumers?
My first thought is have people check in at the front door and provide their phone number. Give folks 2 minutes to get to the store after you call them before moving on down the list. At least that way, someone could sit in the foodcourt or walk around. Other businesses that have had success with this approach? Try every restaurant who has a lot of volume. You know, you get that little pager whilst you wander around.
What are the readerships ideas?
It might be fatigue, or possibly that I haven't eaten in a while, but I think Apple really needs someone's help since their super rich executives may have forgotten how the common man lives. Non-linestanding rich bastards!
