Huge iPhone Displays Appearing in Apple and AT&T Stores, Terrorize Shoppers

Remember that mysterious iPhone display unit erected in the wee hours at the 5th Avenue Apple Store? Well they have cropped up everywhere now. Both Apple retail stores and AT&T Wireless stores are featuring these frightening iPhone displays that demonstrate iPhone features and threaten to abduct your children.

What impresses me most about these displays is the amount of money invested in development. However much these units cost to manufacture, it wasn't cheap I can tell you that. This illustrates the importace both companies place on this product.

Apple Posts iPhone Guided Video Tour, Narrated by Steve Jobs Clone

Apple has updated its iPhone product webpage with a new guided tour video, demoing the phone and its operation. This is the first official demo of the final software framework in action, but very little is revealed that we didn't already know. One thing that was finally made clear is the location and placement of the SIM tray on top of the device, which wasn't clearly visible in previous photos.

The scary part of the video is the Steve Jobs wannabe, wearing a black mock turtleneck with sleeves rolled up. He looked the part but failed miserably to use Steveisms like "Boom" and "wouldn't it be great.."

AT&T Won't Be Taking iPhone Orders via Phone or Online, So Sayeth Sales Rep

More bad news, I'm afraid. Those of you who hoped to avoid the experience of camping out in front of AT&T Wireless stores by ordering the iPhone by phone or online are out of luck. I just spoke with a second AT&T sales rep who confirmed what a previous lackey told me; AT&T will only be selling iPhone to customers through their corporate stores on a first come, first served basis. No pre-orders, and no orders by phone or through the web.

The rep I spoke with did not know for certain how long this policy would continue, but hinted that it would go on well past June 29. So, bottom line - if you want an iPhone you must get in line, literally.

Isn't this fun? I'm thinking of becoming an alcoholic to pass away the time. Who wants to join me in a drink?

AT&T to Announce iPhone Data Plans on June 29, Bring Your Preparation-H

Along with the rollout of iPhone comes new data plan pricing, according to AppleInsider.

Meanwhile, Carter hinted that iPhone "may offer cool features such as unlimited Web browsing." However, customers should be prepared to pay extra for that luxury. "Regardless of which device you're using today, you pay us a certain amount for (voice) minutes, and you also pay us for data units," he said. "That is also true on the iPhone."

Wait, what? I already pay $19, on top of voice, for unlimited data, which includes all-you-can-eat web browsing. Is AT&T planning to further sodomize me with some form of premium iPhone-only data plan? In the words of the great Chinese philosopher, Confucius, "that's bullshit!".

[UPDATE:]Now AT&T is saying it will announce data pricing before launch day. Oh well, doesn't matter. The news won't be good. We're still getting screwed.

I must be part of the minority that doesn't like these TV ads. They just don't feel compelling, or alluring.

AT&T Discloses iPhone Crowd Control Strategy, with Bullets and Shoes

I'm less concerned about making my way through lines and more worried what will happen to me once I exit the store with iPhone in hand. I don't fancy having my new iPhone jacked by some street thug lurking around the parking lot, waiting to swoop down on unsuspecting victims as they approach their vehicles.

What AT&T needs more than anything is a constable standing outside its store to ensure that customers make it safely back to their cars.

Huge Line of Job Applicants at AT&T Store, Thanks to iPhone?

And I thought only consumers would be lining up outside of AT&T stores. Apparently waves of job applicants are gearing up to snatch positions generated from all the iPhone buzz.

This image scares the hell out of me because it confirms that iPhone mania that we've all joked about may in fact turn out to be true. On Friday June 29, I and thousands of other consumers will standing in lines very similar to the one you see above, in order to get an iPhone. The thought that I may end up wasting my time in a long queue and coming home empty handed doesn't exactly sit well with me.
