    Didn't Tim Cook say earlier this year that apple was focusing on secrecy? How awesome would it be if all these "prototypes" were just to throw everyone off and tomorrow's iPhone is nothing like any of them???

    About the same as winning the lottery and getting struck by lighting on the same day.

    Very likely we will know soon. Usually the day before or morning of the rumors will usually firm up.

    With all the part leaks I would say almost no chance. There may be a slight difference but I think we are going to see the phone in the leaks.

    Wouldn't be the first time I've seen a curve ball tossed here and there but I doubt that most will be wrong.

    Who has the bingo cards ready?

    First, I didn't even hear of that story.

    Second, it could happen, but it's very unlikely.

    All being wrong - zero chance.

    A few being wrong - probably.

    A surprise or two - maybe.

    After all, there are few thousand rumors out there.

    It would be awesome to diehard Apple fans who follow sites like this and represent .1% of the buying population and are going to be the device regardless of what it looks like.

    99.9% of the population doesn't care about the leaks, rumors or prototypes.

    Apple is going to sell millions of these regardless of what they roll out. I'm sure Tim is WAY more worried about supply lines and production that orchestrating some internet hoax to entertain the small population that are going to be the device on day one anyway.

    Very slim.

    But the thing with these press conferences, and why all of us are essentially going crazy over them is because there's always something there, however little, to surprise us.

    I think that is a bit overstated, I have seen articles on yahoo with negative comments... videos of youtube with negative comments... You can't say ALL of those people visit rumor sites.

    Also, I know plenty of people who barely know how to utilize their iPhone but still know about the rumors and think it is dumb to make it only taller... and to the uniformed (in terms of what the benefits of 16:9 are)... They really don't get it at all.

    So while I understand your comment, I think you over-exaggerated quite a bit.

    I am excited to see what happens tomorrow.

    Slim but not impossible. We will find out soon enough.
