With a half hour to go, NYC's iPhone crowds scramble for Starbucks, Pogue

'New York Times' columnist and coffee guy in green apron are the most popular people on the scene.

Continuing my series of unedited, incoherent clips from the iPhone launch in NYC that were taped with a pocket-size Canon point-and-shoot, here is a little clip of the most popular person on the block (the Starbucks employee handing out free coffee) and the second most popular person on the block (New York Times tech columnist David Pogue, talking to fans).

Also being handed out: Evian water and Godiva chocolate. This liveblogger is happy!
