Iconsiam’s Facebook page today shared pictures of iPhone fans waiting in line to buy the brand new iPhone11 at the first official Apple store in Thailand.

The queue started forming overnight as Apple fans tried to become first in line to get hold of the latest model. The iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11 are exclusively available from today at the Apple store in IconSiam.

The first customer turned up at midnight and waited patiently to pick up the iPhone 11 Pro Max which he had booked online.

Yep, before the time of social media, you could have been using shameful photos like this for extortion.

Sheeple queuing up for hours and coughing up large sums just to hold and obsess with the latest fashion-gadget which then alienates them from the world. Not quite the soulful liberation Steve Jobs had in mind?

Love the device(s), but could never justify waiting in line more than 5 minutes for it. Wait until the hype is over and get it a week later.

Here in Ubon the iPhones were available at the phone companies and no line.

this is exactly what he had in mind, all he cared about was selling gadgets and making huge profits, all the hippy rubbish was just for show

Every year, they post the same story, just changing what apple phone it is (iPhone "X"), perhaps updating the images but that's no guarantee. The same divided people come out and make the same derogatory responses (android vs iphone). We SOOOOOO need to get some hobbies!

Never ceases to amaze me how gullible a lot of people are.  It's just a smart phone, just one of hundreds of equally functional devices by other manufacturers.  Some people, maybe a whole lot of people, clearly have more money than sense. 

But do they have more money than sense Pilotman or is it addiction. The money for addiction comes from many other cutbacks.  My 12 yo Nokia does all I want .  I wonder how many accidents were caused when folk were looking at their new gadgets on the way home.
