    Since nobody has created a thread specifically for this:

    Pics in the article.

    I love it. Someone is just waiting outside of Quanta taking pics. How hard would that be to keep from running up and grabbing a box, tearing it open to see what is inside?

    How many iPhones can you get in a box the size of an iMac anyway?

    those brown boxes the size of imac boxes are, in fact, imacs. We just got a shipment of ~280 iMacs at my work, and the imacs came double boxed--thin plain cardboard exteriors, normal imac boxes inside.

    Ha...he would probably get as far as someone trying to steal the roulette ball at a casino before getting tackled. My buddies and I have always guessed as to how far that would be :D Always decided, not far.

    Ah yes, Occam's razor.

    All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best.

    But, why are they outside? Could there be different boxes INSIDE the warehouse?

    But that doesn't explain the loads of unboxed, but plastic-wrapped, iMacs already present. Why would some be boxed and others not?

    I wondered that too Gloss. Maybe Apple Stores vs. authorized resellers perhaps?

    It is a fine line. If it were a girlfriend, stalking. Apple products, stakeout. ;)

    No Way

    Apple would never allow the iphones to just be sitting in boxes outside of a warehouse like that. I'm sure there is heavy security around that place, but there aren't any fences or major deterrants!

    The REAL phones are inside the warehouse and they had to move those computers out to make room. ;)

    We are all too obsessed...
