According to a report from Australian Apple enthusiast site MacTalk, a number of Australian resellers have received sealed packages from Apple, which are not to be opened until Tuesday June 10 — the same day (in Australia) as Steve Jobs’ keynote address. Little more is known about the smallish boxes, which are labeled “Subject to terms of NDA: Do not open until Tuesday June 10th 2008.” MacTalk’s sources believe that the packages contain next-generation iPhones, to be used for promotional purposes prior to the handset’s launch in Australia.

It’s an Apple loyalty test. It contains an angry cobra with only enough air to live until the 10th.

OMG, that’s so fake.  Are you kidding?  Apple’s going to send out a box with a huge logo and “Please don’t open until Xmas!” plastered on the front?  Geez ... Come on, people.  Get it together.

It could be real. At my job, we got the last Harry Potter book like 5 days before it came out, with a sign like that… and I work at a grocery store. We still haven’t sold one.

it has a run-one-time photosensor and software in it. if opened you violate your NDA when it connects to the network.
