Tech Heads Go Gaga Waiting for Apple's IPhone

Tech-heads camped overnight outside Apple electronics stores in US cities aiming to be the first to own an iPhone, marketed as the coolest gadget on the planet, when they go on sale Friday.

The breakthrough device, which puts a phone, web browser and music player in the palm of the hand, goes on sale at 6 p.m. (2200 GMT) Friday.
