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!

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.
