A die-hard apple fan who can’t wait to get his hands on the new iPhone is already queuing up at a store, ten days earlier before the sales of the new smartphones.
The tech firm is expected to unveil three new iPhones tonight, including iPhone 8 and a flagship gadget called the iPhone X Edition.
This gadget probably won’t be in stores for at least another week and a half, but that isn’t a problem for Mazen Kourouche who is now camping outside an Apple Store in Sydney.
According to reports, he was one of the first people to get their hands on the iPhone 7 last year and hoping to be among the first buyers this year.
Speaking to news.com.au, he said: “Before I used to do it for the phone, now I am running a tech YouTube channel and trying to get the news out there and cover it first.’
The 20-year-old is also with two of his friends to ensure they do not lose their position at the front of the line over the coming weeks.
“At least [this year] I know where the bathroom is… it’s pretty much all set-up,” he said.
“We have a tent and sleeping bag, and with my mate, we will rotate shifts.”
According to Kourouche, he faced disappointment last year after waiting for 48 hours in miserable weather only to be told the jet black iPhone 7 Plus units would not be available in stores for walk-in customers because they were already sold out.
But this time around, he came with a proper plan to ensure he gets the phone he wants.
“I am looking to pre-order even though I am lining up,” he said.
And if it doesn’t go as planned, Mr. Kourouche said he will happily take one of the other models and upgrade when the new device becomes available.
“It’s not a big deal, I will eventually get it,” he said.
A-list actress, Monalisa Chinda in a new interview with The Other News, talked about sexual harassment in the movie industry.
According to the mother of one, actresses keep mum about sexual harassment for fear of stigmatization and the resultant effect on their careers. In her words . “It’s a bit uncomfortable for someone to come out and say I was cornered to sleep with a producer because of a role,” she said. “They keep quiet about it because of their careers. Apart from that, the society stigmatizes these women. So you just swallow your pride. “When you are outside the shores of Africa, women are heroes for coming out to speak about sexual abuse, but here.” .
