If I were in New York City right now, I'd be lining up for the new iPhone 5 - not just because it will be a great phone, but the lining up is an event, within the event. iNCEPTION?!

People are already lining up for the iPhone 5, 8 days from release |

Now we have people not only lining up for the sixth-generation iPhone 5 eight days early, but they're using it to their advantage. The first two in line are Hazem Sayed, and his marketing manager Sage, promoting a social media startup called Vibe. Sayed says Vibe is a tool "to create ad hoc communities of people who happen to be in the same place" -- like an iPhone line.

Number three and four in line are Jessica Mellow, and Keenen Thompson, who have been here, done that. They lined up in October for the iPhone 4S launch, and were in number one and two positions, this year they were a little late to the punch.

Would you line up eight days early for the iPhone 5?
