    Apple Stores in the past have, usually, not received new items until the day before or even the day of their unveiling. Try again.

    Anyone working for Apple care to confirm or deny if stores have "passcoded vaults" that are off access to normal employees, but can hold a a truckload of pallets?

    Sounds like the OP is more likely 2 days away from being possibily banned due to creating false rumours, than having the heads up on new unannounced product... Easily confirmable rumor though - as this would be seen across multiple stores if true. Isn't back to School promo material most likely?

    At least get the date right. 27th is Wednesday. We would have seen a leaked picture of a box or something if this were the case.

    False rumors ? hehehe

    Now we have to have "real" rumors ?

    Give the guy a break. "False" rumors are discussed on this board daily. Especially 2 weeks before WWDC.

    Obviously calling it a "false" rumor is stupid but when was the last time a retail employee was tipped off by his/her manager that Apple was releasing something super-secret in the next week, AND was right about it?

    It's happened before.

    [edit]

    This is not to imply I think this rumor is true.

    I'll play along.

    Maybe it's an iTablet. If Apple wants to have any sessions for developing for an iTablet, they'll need to let developers have one... so they release it today, and then they can have WWDC iTablet sessions.

    Don't like an iTablet? Just replace it with something else you want to see.:)

    Hopefully this time tomorrow I'm looking at something new!

    Another "Tuesday is coming" thread.... :rolleyes:

    Apple, here in the USA, at least, hardly does anything the day after a National Holiday (Memorial Day, in this case)...

    I'm going to bet, if true, they're a bunch of iPods for the back-to-school deal.

    ditto. but for next tuesday. because the back to school promo didn't start today, and historically it starts the first week of june.
    next tuesday is june 2nd so this lines up

    interesting! if it say "do not open until" then it's gotta be something new (or updated product?). they wouldn't go out of the way just for a restock on ipods.

    i guess we'll see soon..

    i honestly really hope it's something new. or even the ipods for the back to school promo (it would be awesome if it started tomorrow)
    but, no offense OP, it's a little suspicious that you're a "macrumors newbie" and posting this rumor.

    i'm wondering if the OP is a windows user that posted on here to fool us all. It would be kind of a funny prank, considering mac users go crazy at the slightest hint of a new product. personally, i'd step over my own grandma just to get some info on a new product!
