Geek of the Week: iQueue Mobile

No matter your problem, there really is an app for that. A new startup is offering to stand in line for you! Download iQueue Mobile, and for $15 per hour, one of their contractors (like Uber drivers) will wait in line for you. They'll also send updates and pictures every 15 minutes to keep you updated on the progress of the line so you can plan your arrival.

That's right, the person only waits in line...they won't actually walk into the Apple Store and purchase the iPhone X for you. You'll have to show up, replace them in line, and buy it yourself.
