    On the Buyer's Guide, for the iPhone, it says the latest release was June 9, 2008. This is when the iPhone 3G was announced. Wouldn't it make sense for the date to be set for July 11th, since that's when the iPhone is released? It's kind of misleading when it says "Buy now! - updated recently" when the update hasn't come out yet.

    What do you guys think?

    im guessing that they click a button which resets the counter back to zero

    remember that the counter will be reset back to zero on July 11th because that is also the date that 2.0 is released

    But they already reset the counter on June 9th. The actual date to reset the counter would be July 11th.

    ya... I guess usually when there's an announcement you can pre-order it. We've generally reset the clock on the day of the announcement. But special cases...

    maybe we will reset it again.

    I agree, the Buyer's Guide should be reverted back to "Do Not Buy" until after July 11 when the iPhone actually is available for sale. Otherwise some unsuspecting consumer might read the guide and assume that the iPhone 2.0 has already dropped.

    Further, the Buyer's Guide only updates after Apple releases the new iPods or Macbooks, etc for sale. So why the different treatment of the iPhone?
