• The iPhones have arrived

    Apple Insider reports that the first iPhone shipments have arrived from Hong Kong.
    Awaiting the freight at each location on Sunday were armored personnel, who were reportedly hired by Apple through its courier's ground handling agent and then cleared by the Transportation Security Administration. Armed guards are extremely unusual for freight coming out of the Asian sector, those familiar with the matter explained, and are typically reserved for shipments containing riches such as gold and diamonds.

    Once on the ground, the iPhone shipments were to be broken down under the watch of the armed personnel, who would then observe the loading of the freight onto ground vehicles and become party to its transpiration outbound.
    Apple employees are not being allowed to take anything with a camera (phone, Mac with built-in iSight, uh... camera) into their store rooms. Oh man, I want those photos.
