    hey everyone so here's the story. My friend and I both walk into a Apple Store to buy a case for our new Iphone 3g and when we were looking around we found this.

    I thought it was funny because since it's such a big product how does someone screw up like that? The only part that really sucks is someone lost their job because of this mistake.

    Only if someone else noticed. ;)

    You'd be surprised (or maybe not) at how many errors and typos get through to print stage… and 3G/G3 is easy to screw up.

    Hey, mistakes happen. Like your use of "there" instead of "their" or the intended use of the plural "their" with the singular "someone." :D

    You would be surprised how many mistakes are out there. I am a print designer and I have made a few errors, and no one in my office has noticed since. I wouldn't think someone would lose a job over a mix up like that. On a billboard or a commercial, then there would be some heat.

    Maybe I'm just dense because I haven't had my coffee yet, but what is the joke? :confused:

    Perhaps it's signage in preparations of the next iPhone release?

    Have you by any chance worked on Apple promotional materials recently? That would explain a lot . . .:D

    Went to buy....

    I went to my apple store on sunday to get my iphone and wanted to buy one of the Agent cases.

    They took all of the off the shelfs and took them out of inventory, because of this typo.

    I was told i have to wait to get one when they got back in stock with the correct packaging.:confused:
