Video from Lines for the iPhone 6

This is making the rounds, but I think it’s important to be sure everyone in the tech industry sees it. Filmmaker Casey Neistat spent 24 hours visiting the various lines for the new iPhone in New York City. What he saw were, apparently, low-income immigrants who speak English as a second language, enduring the long wait in line in order to sell the iPhones they buy (paid for in cash) to unidentified gray-market buyers who meet them a few blocks away. Also included, footage of NYPD conduct in policing the line. It’s a sad commentary on the seamy underbelly of Apple’s success.
