    so my mom just got an iphone 4, and in the box was this really strange, decidedly un-apple like note, it reads -

    Thanks for participating in our apple tracking program. this will be of great assistance in the future for our homeland security service - you can be proud that you have served your country. we will not pass on your location to any federal authorities other than homeland security. thanks once again.

    then it has the old multicolored apple symbol, then "2010 re. 2010 07"

    what the hell is this? it is really sketchily done, crudely folded up with incorrect punctuation and capitalization. no way it's apple's doing, so who the hell's doing is it?

    i'm significantly weirded out by this...

    Put that one in the circular file. Obviously a poorly executed prank.

    That's creepy.Maybe it was a used iPhone 4 that belonged to someone in homeland security.

    Plus, they wrote it backwards...weird.

    Seriously, though. Was the box sealed in the plastic wrap?
