Thread: Hmm, Always 9:42?

    Default Hmm, Always 9:42?
    Did anyone notice that on every iPhone picture on Apples site, the time is always 9:42? Even in videos, its stays 9:42 the whole time.

    you are right, i just looked lol

    It's also always Sunday June 3

    According to the hitchikers guide to the galaxy, the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42...
    Perhaps the iphone is steve job's answer to life, the universe, and everything

    I'm sure most of this is for consistency so that in commercials or demos a constanty changing time isn't distracting (the videos undoubtedly took more than one minute to film)

    A quick google search brought up the fact that the iphone was announced at macworld (last year....) at 9:42 am.

    I guess time stands still when you're as cool as the iPhone.

    If u have done the prefrence hack where it adds stuff to ur setting -- there is an option FAkE Time & when u turn it on 9:42am Comes up .

    Haha real cool tidbit. I bet all or most of the interface is simulated when it zooms in like that.. who knows though? haha send apple an email telling them you are interested in buying an iphone and want to know if the time at the top actually displays the correct time or if it is always 9:42
