While we're still iPhone-less (AT&T Activation has been screwing up about 38% of the purchases), we're not above recalling the frenzy from Friday night. Gothamist went out with vdeographer Kelly Loudenberg to check out the line, chat with some of the people (dog Beta and his owner Dan, Kensu who is blogging at The Story Gets Deeper, and others), and marvel at the madhouse. The NY Times' David Pogue gave us his impression of the crowd, too.

And CNet has this list of the top 10 tech product launches before the iPhone - it's not a great list (why is Gizmondo there?).
