A tipster writes in from the line outside the Apple store in Soho, where she's been waiting all afternoon: "Apple Soho has just announced to everyone outside in line that they have to 'sort out the situation inside' so they aren't letting anyone in for an hour. I've already been in line for 3. Everyone is getting really antsy despite the complimentary water and (non-complimentary) sun umbrellas they're handing out. Also, LOTS of line-cutting drama."
