One college student in New York found a very creative way to raise the money for her favorite gadgets; she simply held the first spot in line. Mashable reports that Amanda Foote waited in line for 41 hours through a rainy day on a hope that someone would respond to her Craigslist ad selling the first spot in line at the most well-known Apple Store in the U.S.
“It’s kind of an easy way to make money, and it’s kind of fun,” she said.
She wasn’t the only one to have this idea. In fact, spots in line for the iPhone 4 went for over $1,000 back in June. During high-profile product launches, Craigslist is often hit with ads for line squatting services allowing people with a bit more disposable income to benefit from a virtual cut in line.
