Apple sends stores mysterious boxes labeled ‘Do Not Open’

“Australian resellers began receiving mysterious packages from Apple on Friday with a warning across the top that breaching the boxes ahead of June 10th would be a violation of their non-disclosure agreements with the company,” AppleInsider reports.

“MacTalk, which posted the [photo on the left] to its forums, notes that June 10th in Australia is actually around the same time of Apple chief executive Steve Jobs’s June 9th WWDC keynote in the US. The site adds that it believes the boxes contain a single demonstration 3G iPhone to be displayed by the resellers immediately following the company’s announcements,” AppleInsider reports.

“Earlier this year, the Australian Apple fan site published a report in which it said that local resellers had started to receive guidance from the Cupertino-based company regarding a local 3G iPhone launch during the final week of June,” AppleInsider reports.

  1. I just read the DUMBEST thing on CNN money….

    “Just how will Apple meet expectations? Using the patent application as a guide, Apple appears to be making room on the iPhone for flash memory, which means an end to Apple’s standoff with Adobe (ADBE) that’s kept iPhones from easily viewing a plethora of Internet videos.”

    Yes, dear, that’s what flash memory does… >.<


  2. The photo is a fake.

    And NDA is a real, legal thing that is enforceable, because if you Disclose, and they can prove it, you have violated an agreement that you signed.

    They cannot, however, prove that you have opened a box.

    Game. Set. Match.
