The next iPhone is expected to be for sale to the public on Sept. 19th (even though it hasn't even been unveiled yet) and already people are lining up to be the first to get their next phone. Quartz takes a closer look at who would line up for 20 days to buy a new phone and it isn't too surprising that the people lining up are being compensated to do so. I guess it would be a good story to tell your grandkids, but I can't imagine 20 days sleeping in a lawn chair is all that fun.
Four people have already lined up to buy the next versions of the iPhone, which aren’t expected to go on sale for another 16 days. But they aren’t really there for iPhones: They are being paid by companies hoping to glom onto the expected frenzy.
