Steve Jobs is famous for possessing a "reality distortion field" that bends people to his will. But today he's got nothing on his Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who talked shoppers into letting him jump an iPhone line.
To finagle a spot in line on the day of the new iPhone 3G S's release would be impressive enough; to do so in the heart of Silicon Valley, where new gadgets are especially coveted, implies Wozniak has grown his skills of persuasion to Jobsian heights. From a shopper in the MacRumors forums:
I arrived at 3:50am and Mr. Woz was chopping it up with the manager at Apple. Then around 4:30am he politely asked everyone in line if he could be the 1st to get his iPhone at the store and everyone said yes.
