Whatever it's called?

Will you buy one this morning?

I've actually got one already right here, tom.

A new thinner, lighter ipad air.

It runs the new ios, has a chip and faster wi-fi.

Is a product that i guess hundreds of people feel the need to stand outside all night for an weight online.

It is amazing.

This many generations, this is the fifth generation ipad.

You still have hundreds of people waiting since 6 p.m. last night made i'm looking at whole groups, tourist groups, bunch of guys from russia.

Budget 12-year-olds waiting here . where did you get that freaking umbrella.

That is not an official bloomberg umbrella.

I thought it would be better to have a transparent umbrella and it was also the only one i could find in my house.

You look like julie christie in one of those movies.

Is a good look for matt miller.

Matt, the people standing in line behind you, there are a lot of tourist tackle a member those people coming in from other countries who wanted to get the ipad or whatever iteration projectduct it was.

I talked to everyone here.

Their are a lot of -- you're not a lot of tourists, there a lot of best from russia.

But they live here in the states.

There's a hold delegation by me from chinatown here.

About 20 of them are from the same neighborhood.

They all came up to get together.

There are some tourists, people still adding onto the line this morning.

They're going to open up in just about an hour.

Everyone who came overnight looks to be pretty prepared, except for the couple of 12- year-olds, they all have umbrellas.

They're all willing to brave the kind of weather and to wait all night.
