iPhone Shipments Arriving Already, Protected By Armed Guards


It’s OK guys, only a few more days until the iPhone’s launch, then we can all move on with our lives. But for now… Apparently Apple is using armed guards to protect the iPhone as it ships from the Far East to North America. The first shipments of the phone are now arriving here, under security that’s usually reserved for actual valuable items like gold and elephant ivory. Apple has also banned the use of all cameras, including iSight-equipped MacBooks, from in its retail store stockrooms to prevent… what, pictures of the phone from leaking? Pretty sure we all know everything there is to know about the phone by now.

I certainly can’t be the only person who’s bothered to read that Apple feels the need to use lethal force to protect its silly phone, right?
