Click to viewYou know those two guys waiting in line for the iPhone a whole 100 hours early? We've got an exclusive non-interview with them. And this grumpy guy is probably not what Apple expected when it envisioned the perfect customer for the iPhone.

Fake Steve is going to cry this is a Microsoft plant. But, look at it this way: he's a living, breathing, sweating indicator that Apple's iPhone really does appeal to the masses, and is ready for more love from the mainstream. Hey, you can't sell 10 million phones by catering only to beautiful technocrats.


Oh and readers, can you help identify these two men? Do you know them? If you do, email us.

UPDATE: Carolyn over at CNet talked to the man, and found out he's a veteran camper, having endured a PS3 launch. Aha, he looks so much friendlier in these shots.
