On the Original iPhone’s Launch

I was an Apple Genius-in-training and working part-time on the sales floor at the local Apple store when the first iPhone went on sale six years ago today.

And boy, was it a circus.

I, too, worked at an Apple Store on launch day and I can attest to the circus environment. I worked at Apple’s flagship store in downtown Chicago and was thankfully working back of house that day, but the minute the doors opened to customers waiting in line, there was an energy like I have never felt before or since.

Thank you, Stephen! Your post brought back fond memories.
