Working Down on the iPhone Farm

On Friday I stood in line with 9 million other chumps (well, somewhere between 9 million and 4.5 million) at the Apple store to get a new iPhone. I learned a lot about what I am calling iPhone Farming –  the growing, harvesting, and selling of iPhones to the secondary market overseas. I was virtually the only non-Chinese person in a line of 500 or more. Anyway, read the whole store here, at Law Technology News.

The iPhone 5s logotext is seen in the window of the Apple store in SoHo, New York City on Friday September 20, 2013.
