Philip Elmer-Dewitt with some johnny-on-the-spot iPad reporting from the centre of New York:At 6:15 a.m., as a sun even Jobs can’t control rose over the East River, we counted 136 people — 63 with reservations, 73 without — queued up in front of the only Apple Store that never sleeps.

Only 2 hours and 45 minutes to go.
