Yes, in case you somehow missed the memo(s), the iPhone is set to hit Apple and AT&T stores today at 6pm. Pictured here, the scene outside the Apple store on Fifth Avenue at 6am this morning. The fact that we almost typed "outside the iPhone store" shows you just how much this device has occupied our thoughts over the past few weeks. From the looks of this photo, it appears as if quite a few news-media outlets have taken an interest in this whole iPhone thing as well. Less than eight hours to go until the doors to Apple and AT&T stores open and everyone freaks out.
