Service Hires 'Line-Sitters' for iPhone Lines
An odd-jobs hiring service has some news for people who can't wait to get their hands on the new iPhone, but can't stand the thought of camping out in line.
TaskRabbit launched its "Skip the Line" campaign immediately after Apple announced its new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
The site says people can pay line-sitters to go to Apple stores early on Friday.
Users can set their own rates, but the company is suggesting a price of $14 an hour for people to wait in line.
The company suggests people swap places with their line-sitters about 10 minutes before they reach the beginning of the line.
A TaskRabbit spokesman says Apple is okay with this practice.
Other sites, such as Craigslist, have also featured people seeking or offering to be iPhone line holders.
