iPhone 4 Craziness: Standers Collapse, Conan Drops in the Line, iSpazio Flies to Paris

Oh, what people do when a new Apple device is coming out. After all, this time we’re talking about the iPhone 4, with its amazing new Retina Display and sleek new design - how can’t people go crazy about it?

TUAW has collected some pictures of people standing in line at the 5th Avenue NYC Apple Store, and man - CoCo himself dropped in to say hi to some Apple fans. Check out the pictures below. Also, another guy standing in line collapsed in the middle of the street and emergency personnel had to close the street while he was treated.  As for people standing in line, the first iPhone 4 camper was spotted last week. I wonder if he’s still there.

But you haven’t seen anything yet. My good friends over at iSpazio and iPadevice decided to fly to France (Paris) to buy an unlocked iPhone 4. Here’s the liveblog that has been going on for 2 days now, and if you happen to speak Italian it’s pretty amazing. We’re embedding a couple of photos and videos below.

People do crazy stuff for Apple. We’ve got proof after the break.
