(Newser) – A college student made $900 by selling her first-in-line spot in front of the Apple Store in midtown New York before the iPad 2 launch. Amanda Foote arrived at the store at 5pm Wednesday and sold the spot this morning to a guy who wanted the iPad with him for a business trip, reports Mashable. The new device went on sale at 5pm today. Foote—who earned the equivalent of about $22 an hour—never intended to buy an iPad. She's using the money for Lady Gaga tickets.
