Hurricane Sandy doesn't stop iPad Mini lines

Good god... It looks like a sweet piece of tech and if I weren't Mustachian I'd be sorely tempted -- but this is what people are doing when their neighbors are in such terrible straights?

iPad Mini Creates New Lines in a City Already Suffering Them

"While residents of New York and New Jersey stood on painfully long lines for buses and subways and much-needed gasoline, at Apple's flagship cube store at the foot of Central Park, the iPad-desirous began lining up as early as 10 p.m. Nov. 1, according to Cnet. The tech site interviewed the person on line—a 21-year-old from Queens who still has no power at home but plans to return with a fully charged white 16GB iPad Mini."

<sarcasm>A "superstorm" is a temporary inconvenience, but an iPad lasts forever for six months until the next one comes out!</sarcasm>

Like the Starbucks story posted yesterday, to me this seems like people trying to maintain normalcy in a hectic and disrupted life.
