LOS GATOS, California (AP) - Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is apparently in a hurry to get ahold of a new iPhone 4S.

Wozniak was first in line when he showed up Thursday at the Apple store in Los Gatos.

"The long wait begins. I'm first in line. The guy ahead was on the wrong side and he's pissed," Wozniak tweeted earlier in the day.

With the new device going on sale Friday, Wozniak said that even though he has two new phones on the way, he plans on staying overnight outside the store.

Apple's latest iPhone hits stores Friday after already breaking a record on first-day pre-orders. People who want one can buy it in the U.S. starting at 8 a.m. in each time zone.

Wozniak was one of about five people who were in line around 2 p.m. local time Thursday at the store.

While he waits, Wozniak plans on getting caught up on his email and chatting with fans.

"I'll be taking a thousand pictures," Wozniak told another interviewer from CNN. "I'm going to sit down and see if I can get a little e-mail done, because there's no way I'm going to get it all done today."
