While some people say that waiting in line for hours just to buy a new tablet is stupid, other humans have this weird determination to be the first to everything. Every year we see people selling their spots at the front of launch lines, but it looks like selling your position in queue has become a bit more sophisticated. Apple fans are now selling their spots in line on EBay in an effort to maximize visibility and hopefully the selling price.
We just found a listing on EBay that is auctioning a person’s position in queue for the new iPad at the Regent Street Apple Store in London. The current bid is set at £76.00 with 13 bidders for the 4th position. There are quite a few hours left so that price will probably increase rapidly in the next few hours.
London’s not the only place selling their spots. You can purchase a spot in NYC from Craigslist too.
Here’s another guy selling multiple spots in the San Francisco Bay area for $300.
What do you think? Is this completely ridiculous, or would you pay for a spot to be first and avoid the wait?
