Gillmor Gang: Under My Thumb

The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, Danny Sullivan, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — collected iPhone 5’s from the four corners of the tech world. Danny Sullivan ordered the elusive gold one at midnight in L.A., Scoble hit the midtown Apple Store in the Big Apple, John Borthwick got his via the betaworks diplomatic pouch, and John Taschek, well, Android Boy passed.

As for me, I grumbled and groaned as @scobleizer broadcast from inside the iStore, as hundreds streamed in and out with the new phone some 7 hours into the upgrade. Finally, as the Gang peeled off to enjoy the fruit of their ardor, I called around for increasingly desperate minutes and miraculously found a store with a few left in Silicon Valley no less. A sweaty hour later, I headed back to the studio to join the herd, a fanboy once again in good standing.
