iPhone 5: Scenes from Michigan Avenue

Overheard between two cameramen outside the Apple store on Michigan Avenue ~

Cameraman 1 takes out his flip phone:   This is my phone. It makes phone calls. It sends texts.
Cameraman 2:   Yeah, I'm like "It's just a phone!"

Tell that to these people ...

Yesterday morning, as I walked to get my coffee, I saw this.  Hmmm, I'm no detective but I think something is happening at the Apple store.
