Apparently, if you are the most admired hero in the history of computing and an awesome dancer, you can cut through iPhone 3GS waiting lines like a lightsaber cuts through butter. The Woz did that today, according to a witness:
I just got my iPhone this morning at the Apple Store in Valley Fair (San Jose, CA) and Steve Wozniak was there.
I arrived at 3:50am and Mr. Woz was chopping it up with the manager at Apple. Then around 4:30am he politely asked everyone in line if he could be the 1st to get his iPhone at the store and everyone said yes.
I would have let him go first too. As long as he gave me a hug, though. [MacRumors Forums via Silicon Alley Insider]
