Six AM. Kourosh isn't here yet. Didn't he know about the big line? The line for Jobs' keynote wraps halfway around the block.
6:15. Media gets shuffled across the street to a holding pen.
6:30. I get in line at Starbucks. Everyone's there for Macworld. I can tell because they're all dressed in grayscale. A man holds the door open; he grins; spirits are high; we're all getting new iBooks, dammit, and the world is a happy place.
