    This was on myspace, stupid people post stuff that they are getting a freee iphone. We all know on here that its BS!!!! and god they can be dumb.

    Look at the image, how stupid can u get, it looks 100% like paper thats been printed off a ****** printer. Which it is, i have seen other pictures, they are all as bad as they look.

    It annoys me that people are so stupid to believe all of it. What do you guys think?

    LMAO look also, they have cut the box a little so it can fit into it haha

    Thats funny, it doesn't look nearly as glossy as the images at MacWorld. What do these guys get out of doing that anyways, I guess they are trying to see how much buzz will be created from it, oh wait...I guess we're helping create a buzz.:rolleyes:

    I wonder why no one has the dummy iPhones that all the big media news channels had the day of Mac World.

    Its for a mouse as you can see the rounded edges.

    Also I think the iPhone will come in a black box to tie in with Leopard and the latest products.

    iphone unboxed...

    Saw the iphoneunboxed site and it's got to be a joke right? Otherwise the level of faking is just sad really... they didn't even bother to change the image on the iPhone from the pic on the box to when they discovered it was "partially charged". :rolleyes: ...The fish image and the time on the phone is the same for all the pics. This pic has got to be the worst, they didn't even photoshop out the folding creases of the paper or the tape! :)

    I assume this is some experiment on how to generate hits with a minimal amount of effort. :D

    Fox news on the day of the keynote had a reporter in front of the Moscone Center with a plastic dummy of the iPhone.

    These guys are probably just trying to get a bunch of hits and see how much of a buzz it can create, thats the reason I put my site up. Apparently its working cause I've seen these images in quite a few different places.
    Its all in fun :D

    That's actually funny. I can't believe he did all of that in a minute, AND that he just happened to get the thing displaying the same time as is on the box! What are the odds? I bet this guy must be Jesus come back or something!





    In all actuality, I don't know how to use photoshop and I could have done a better job. A much better job.

    Use the "control" button and use your scroll wheel to zoom in. It is so fake it's rediculous.
