Apple iPhones and iPods have taken the country by storm. News channels have played and replayed video of people in long lines waiting to get their hands on the newest models, with wide grins on their faces as they make their way out of the store. This is what 24-year-old Jack Assadourian lives for. He is the owner of Invisible Gadget Guard, a kiosk on the second floor of the Glendale Galleria, and he sells his wares outside the one place where people would go to buy an iPod or iPhone — the Apple Store.

Scenes of jubilation and excitement like that at the Americana at Brand played out at Apple stores across the nation today as fans waited in lines for hours to buy the latest iteration of the iPhone. Hundreds of people waited in line at the Americana this morning to be among the first owners of the new iPhone 4S. Even Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with the late Steve Jobs, waited in line waiting for hours to buy the latest iPhone at an Apple Store in Los Gatos. Millions of the iPhone 4s were expected to fly off shelves today after Apple announced earlier this month that pre-orders had topped 1 million within 24 hours.

Nine people sat on stools around a wooden table inside the Apple store on Wednesday to learn how to operate their new iPads — including Janice Serote, who got hers for her 70th birthday. The La Crescenta resident taught keyboarding at Glendale Community College for 38 years before retiring. But the iPad was Serote’s first foray into Macintosh and tablet computers. After buying an “iPad for Dummies” book, she enrolled in Wednesday’s free class at the Apple store in the Galleria.

It appears much of the midnight Black Friday rush has dissipated in Glendale, making way for the morning crush of shoppers who decided to get a few hours of sleep after Thanksgiving to start their day. Shoppers who braved midnight store openings at the Glendale Galleria said the crowds had thinned somewhat since the early morning hours, a sign that the first wave had receded. For many, it was a race against the clock at the stroke of midnight before the second wave of traditional morning shoppers arrived.

As people shuffled past the Apple store at the Americana at Brand Thursday, some stopped to snap photos, others to inspect - not the latest iPhone, but a makeshift memorial in honor of the company's late co-founder, Steve Jobs. As Apple customers reflected on Jobs' contributions, and how the Mac brand would be without him, it was clear his reach extended past generations and personal backgrounds. The memorial, which included flowers, a candle, photos and cards, featured a written message next to a drawing of a crying apple, a nod to Apple's ubiquitous logo.

By the time I discovered my iPhone was lost, I knew the odds of finding it were slim to none. I dashed in to Vons to grab a coffee before writing last week’s column. After adding cream and Splenda to my cup of joe, I forgot to pick up my phone. I went home, spent a couple of hours writing and soon after realized the phone was gone. My 10-year-old daughter, with her optimistic heart, tried calling the phone to see if someone would pick up. Unfortunately, her call went straight to voice mail, indicating the phone had already been switched off. “I once found a credit card in a store and gave it to the store manager,” she told me. The thought that my daughter’s sense of right and wrong was in the right place lifted my heart.

Mariane Gerardo does not consider herself technically savvy and never waited overnight for anything, let alone a new cellphone. But there she was, with more than 150 other people on Friday morning, waiting eagerly for Apple’s newest offering — the second-version iPhone that officials say is faster and more powerful than its previous incarnation. Gerardo joined the line in front of the AT&T store at 207 N. Brand Blvd. at 11 p.m. Thursday, which was nearly seven hours after Martin Arakelyan drove from Hollywood to the store in Glendale.
