Posted by Raul in blogosphere, friends.

So this post is not even well thought out because I just woke up at like 7.30 am and went directly to meet Tanya and Tod at the flagship Fido store and then went to the Rogers on Broadway and Arbutus where I saw Travis. Photos and video are uploaded here. [Sorry, took the video with my Flip camera]

I interviewed Travis on what was going on at Arbutus and Broadway.

Some photos from today’s madness at the Fido flagship store AND the Rogers Broadway are on my Flickr.

Things that absolutely were terrible, as indicated by participants:

– No real breakfast (water, juice and power bars – what the heck?)
– System failure (they couldn’t do upgrades, only new accounts and even then, their system failed).
– They didn’t have enough personnel to handle all the requests.

Overall assessment – FAIL – but heck, some of my friends, including John Biehler, already got their iPhone!

Yeah i was there and i have to say it was all handled very poorly. I had to leave after 3 hours of waiting and my girlfriend is still in line. She has told me that so far, since 8am only 20 or so people have been able to make it through and purchase the phone. what a failure of promotion, business management, and overall common sense. WOW rogers really does suck!!!
