No, I’m not in love with someone called Uschi Lang, but a young man standing outside Apple’s new store in New York most certainly is. The romantic in question chose a time when the camera taking pictures of the stores first 24 hours would be quiet and therefore he would likely be seen on the resulting video on the Apple website. At around 5:40am the man in question arrives with A3 size hand written notices he holds for a few minutes in front of the camera.

The three notices say “Uschi Lang. – I love you. – Will you marry me?” After some hunting around online I can find no mention of whether or not Ms Lang said yes to the early-bird romantic young man, maybe in time Apple will tell us, maybe we’ll never know, but the romantic in me hopes that she did indeed say “yes.”
