What's up with getting there early?

Recently the New IPAD® was launched and people waited in lines for days to get their hands on that gadget. Although by the looks of the reviews, it seems that it is just a glorified IPAD® 2 with better quality things (Disclosure: I have not owned or tried any of the IPAD®) but here my point is that the fanaticism of some people to wait for days to be number one in line to get their hands on the latest gadgets. Another one was the recently introduced Nike® footwear which was selling as hot cakes and during the first day of sales, fights broke out to get their hands on them. I can't understand why there is so much impatient to get their hands on the first day and even the first hour. Can people not wait a few days and get the items, it is the same item that people have the same day and you are not going to get a different version in a few days.

It is not only with the latest products but even with movies, people want to the first one to see it and then brag about it online or with their friends. Is it just me or are people just don’t have the patient to wait to get their hands on things. My philosophy is let other people try it and if it is okay then I can go ahead and buy it and anyway it is really hard to stand in line at wee hours of the day and night to get a hand on a stuff which will be available after that anytime. I guess people have too much time on their hands. If I have been sponsored and paid by somebody else then I can stand in line otherwise patience is a virtue for me and for some others too.
