iPhone 6 Quest: Day 12

Day 12

Only 3 days left in this quest! Can’t believe we’re almost there. The days are getting shorter and the weather, well… crazier everyday. It usually begins with a very cold morning followed by a sunny and hot afternoon. Ending, of course, in a strangely chilly night that eventually turns into another cold autumn morning. No wonder why my throat is starting to hurt again.

iPhone 6 Quest: Day 7

Day 7

Today, we could finally rest for a bit. Don’t get me wrong, we still had work and give several interviews, but nothing like the previous days.

Many people ask us if it is really safe to sleep outside on the street. It has been up to now it has been; however, this doesn’t mean that we haven’t experienced any disturbing events during our stay. 

The first one occurred the second night we spent here in New York City. We were just trying to have some rest when this annoying security guard came and tried to bully us out of the line claiming that we were sitting in his spot (of course we weren’t). He went on and on saying that we were cutting in line, but didn’t manage to accomplish anything except becoming more and more frustrated with himself. 

He came back today and called the N.Y.P.D. to complain about us cutting in line… again. However, even the police asked him to stop acting like a child and get back to work. We laughed. 

The bad thing is that him and his fellow security guards have placed several chairs after us in the line and have claimed that those are their seats (even though they are NEVER here).

They expect to sell these spots for at least $1000 USD next Friday, September 19th, the day when the new iPhones come out. It’s annoying because all the way at the back of the line there is a girl name Mia who has actually spent two nights here already (this night will be her third) but cannot get closer to us because of these security guards and their hunger for money. 

The second disturbing incident that we have experienced occurred a couple of days ago. A guy by the name of Brian Silverman came by to say hello. At first he seemed like a normal middle-aged man who just wanted to talk to us. Although he seemed smart at first, I wasn’t interested at all in engaging on a conversation with him. He left for a while but came back just after sunset. This time, behaving like a … well, let’s just say he was very aggressive and impolite. He began insulting us up to the point where Joe almost punched him in the face; however, he managed to run away. 

He came back the next morning and continue with his behavior. We scared him away and he hasn’t been back since. 

I guess living on the streets can be a little disturbing, but still, we won’t quit this quest. Only 9 more days to finally get our iPhones! We’re almost there.

iPhone 6 Quest: Day 6

Today we got media from all over the world interviewing us. Big agencies, freelancers, bloggers, they all wanted to hear our story, especially the answer to the question… “Why are you camping out for a phone?” The problem was that they were here very early this morning, way before we woke up. Even Lauren Simonetti from Fox News twitted a photo of all of us sleeping and asking “Should I wake them up?”. Thankfully, she didn’t.

It is crazy how this iPhone 6 quest has escalated so quickly. A week ago no one knew who we were and today, our faces are all over the world in different languages.

About the iPhone, we’ve decided to each buy the 5.5″ iPhone 6 Plus with 128GB. I’m guessing that will be enough for us. We (mostly me) are a bit upset about the Apple Watch release date: beginning of 2015. I was excited to get one, but well… I guess I’ll have to wait, except that this time I will do it at home.

Health Report: Jonah is as healthy as a horse and me, well, I still have a sore throat.

Weather Report: cold, windy, and cloudy… perfect for camping out on the streets of New York City.

That’s it for tonight, I will continue tomorrow. Good night!

Cheers!
