First Guy In Line For iPad Was Also First For iPhone

A man named Greg Packer is officially the first one in line for an iPad at Apple's flagship 5th Avenue storefront in New York City. Oh, yeah, and he was also the first in line when the iPhone came out in 2007.

Call him an Apple fanatic, or a true early adopter, or a guy who just has nothing better to do with his life. Whatever his motivation, Greg Packer is earning some strong Internet stardom for his ability to sit in line for days on end just to get a new piece of tech.

Mr. Packer, referred to in the media as "iLoser" when he waited nearly 5 days to be the first one to own an iPhone. Now, even though iPad pre-orders were much more available than was the case for the iPhone, he's camping out yet again.

Packer is becoming known for his "first in line" status, but he's actually been a media darling for over a decade. Somehow, he has managed to get into over 100 news stories in "man on the street" segments and even has his own Wikipedia page. Who knew New Jersey highway workers could be so enterprising?

Hey Greg, we'll be looking for you when Apple releases the iPhone 4G!
