    Why is it every picture of the iphone 4, ipad, and ipod touch on apple's website has the screen at 9:41 am? I think it's just kind of odd.. What are your thoughts?

    Really? Never really noticed it but interesting as you point it out. I doubt they were taken photos at exactly the same time. They are graphical images anyway, not actual photos of the products I would imagine.

    yeah, but the fact that they would have to do that for the ipad and iphone (ipod has same screen size)... they cant have the same pictures and just blow it up for the ipad.. but now it'll just drive me crazy till i figure out why..

    Maybe it's a secret code of some sort? *awkward silence*

    :p

    If they focused more on quality control of their products and addressed more common issues like the antenna gate and light leak rather than trying to focus on minor details like trying to find a good time to put on their iPhones it would have reduced a lot of angry customers.

    Did you ever notice that when a clock (analog) is shown in an advertisement, the time is almost always set to 10:10?

    I always thought it was because it was a visually appealing number (in terms of the font and width etc) and similarly with the analogue clocks at 10:10.

    There were a lot less angry customers than you think, but that’s old news.

    This is actually pretty common. For example, in X-Files clocks almost always read 10:13 because October 13 was the director's birthday, or sometimes 11:21 for his wife's birthday.

    Also if you have a stock time to display as company policy, you don't have to think of one every time you make a new image. Yeah it just takes a second or two each time, but little decisions like that add up.

    I don't think its the same people who design the iPhone and create pictures for presentations, but by all means, carry on with your baseless rant.

    Reminds me how in one of the Justice League episodes/movies, Batman, trapped by an alternate version of himself, to try the code "91939" - Sept. of 1939 was the first issue of Batman.

    Yeah because the engineers work in the marketing department, right? :rolleyes:

    So in other words, you can sleep through the first 40 minutes of their presentation.

    The first 40 minutes? No. It'd be cutting it too close and you might actually miss something. I'd consider taking a nap the first 39 minutes safe.

    Do we have to get technical here? I was talking about Apple as a whole company :p

    It's still irrelevant. You can't re-assign a graphic designer to the engineering team when they tick something off their to-do list...

    Fine :d

    Jeez never thought many people will quote my comment and argue against it. I was merely making a point, oh well it's good that Apple focuses on minor details; more professional and I would never have thought that the time is based on the keynote and 40mins etc.
