    I noticed that the date showing on the Calendar icon on my iPhone 3G box is Tuesday: 9. I found this amusing since Apple is holding an event this Tuesday, September 9.

    Since I couldn't find a related thread, I thought I'd ask; does 'Tuesday 9' hold any special significance for Apple? Or, do you believe this was a deliberate clue from Apple with regards to the upcoming media event? Or, do you feel this is just a quirky coincidence?

    Also, the only other month in 2008 (besides September) to have its 9th day fall on a Tuesday is December... Another clue perhaps?

    Your thoughts?

    Tuesday Jan 9th 2007 was the original announcement I believe.

    The clock on the box also shows 10:15. So maybe that's when he will announce something significant.

    both times on the 3G and original iPhone box say 09:42

    Only other thing different visually is the original box says 02 in the top corner of the phone too where the new one doesnt.

    I posted about this when the 3G was going to be released and how MobileMe had 'Tuesday 9' on the Box (still does - look at MobileMe in the Apple Store). So, it doesn't mean anything about this upcoming September 9. Sorry.

    That's correct, and if I'm not mistaken the first phone call (to Jonathan Ive) was made at 9:42 AM.

    Mine shows 10:15,
    I just realized what clock you were talking about, I am talking about the clock on the icon.
