Exactly. For all you know, Apple marketing folks may have been playing in the minds of lot of people to generate this hype. So what he could get is some 1000 bucks from apple or that store, 500 from fools who will donate for his "cause" and sell it on ebay and make another 500 profit....so 2000 in 5 days isnt too bad

Apple does not need publicity, infact they spend very less on ads. Word of mouth is what it is. Remember Apple launched the iPhone when there was the Consumer Electronics show going on in Las Vegas. No prizes for guessing where the crowd and media attention was !!!
Well, you said it sentil, the word of mouth goes on. BTW, the unemployed do earn quite a packet for being unemployed in the US.

That is quite a possibility & also he could become so famous that he will be booked for TV shows for the next 5 years.
