START OF 2018 OPEN ENROLLMENT PERIOD

Time: D H M S

Apple Store Opening or #ACASurge? You be the judge.

So, a couple of weeks ago I started a new #hashtag on Twitter, #ACASurge (at least I think I started it...perhaps not). Anyway, today the White House Blog posted this entry:

The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami -- where trained workers have signed up 25,000 of their fellow Floridians since November. It was standing-room-only at a center in Houston yesterday.

The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they're covered.

This is what momentum looks like.

I've posted 4 photos. Two of these are (according to the White House Blog) people lining up to enroll for health insurance coverage. The other two are from the launch of Apple stores (update: actually it turns out they're both from the launch of the iPad 2 back in 2011, but you get my point). Without visiting the WH blog or checking the file names first, can you tell which is which?
