    Pointless observation. Every time the iPad is pictured the time is always 9:41 AM. Here are just a few of the many images I found where 941 are mentioned.

    I think that's just a frame and not an actual screenshot of the iPad. Like a 3D render.

    As for the video, I'm not sure if that's how they do it, but I think they also use multiple layers so that it's also a rendered iPad shot.

    That's why it's always 9:41...cause they're using the same image.

    The time when the iPad was announced? Kind of like a similar story about the iPhone.

    I thought the same about the time aspect, but how do you explain that email using the numbers "941".
    Event didn't start till 10 AM pacific time.

    3 squared, 2 squared, 1 squared?

    Buggered if I know what it means though. Maybe it's an ancient code that unlocks the secret of the holy grail

    Speaking of Photoshop, there is no home button in the image. What do you think the commercial model is actually holding?

    Models ;)
    there are mtiple people in the advert. Time lapse shows hange of location, clothes and also pair of hands. Pod catch on the home button.
    Looking at how it rotates perfectly I would imagine it could be green screen on a swivel mount between the legs, or a mock up.

    Perhaps this is another conspiracy. Maybe 9:41 is the time pre-orders will be available from...? :rolleyes:

    Might be wrong here but..

    The time is what time Jobs announced the iPad. I remember reading somewhere that the clock app on the iPhone is at 10:15 due to the same reason.

    In the same article, it mentioned at the older iMac boxes showed a image of the iMac and the clock shown on the task bar was the version of OS it was shipped with. So, 10:05 = OS X 10.5

    Again, I might be wrong and the whole article might have been BS

    this must be the most pointless thread....obviously they had to use some timeframe...all the images are generated, they are not real on screen photos... why do you think there is no reflections?
    :rolleyes:

    Shoot.

    Everyone knows that the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, is 6 x 9 = 42. Thus the iPhone had the secret code June 942.

    Uh oh.

    The iPad is off by one digit.

    We're doomed.

    Oh well.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    941 is the area code for Sarasota and a good part of southwest Florida down to above the Fort Myers area... irrelevant I'm sure, but who knows. :)

    Clearly it can be decoded thus

    9 = the letter "I"
    4 = the letter "D"
    1 = the letter "A"

    Now - who is IDA. Or could it be slang for "Ida know who is going to buy this - but I bet plenty"

    Or maybe it's an acronym. I Deserve Apple
