Why does every iPhone picture/commercial have the time of 9:42?

Does it mean something?

They couldn't have filmed every commercial and took every picture all in one minute.

Any ideas? Or am I looking too deep into this

doesn't it read 9:41 in your avatar as well? I believe one of the pictures seen had the time of 6:00 also, I can't remember off hand though. Maybe the WWDC?

Well in the original picture you'll see the SMS has a 2 next to it and the calendar states 9 (that's the 29th) then you'll see the time of 9:41. If you take 9-4+1=6 (that is the month of june, so now you have June 29th). Then you look at the clock and it says 6 o'clock (that's the time of release). It was there all along the release date and time :D

Well, now I want a t-shirt that simply says: 9:41 in the same font that is on the iPhone.

It'll be a total insider's t-shirt. You'll have to be "in the know" to know what it means.

Then maybe on the back, in small lettering, it can say "Everything iPhone."

I was wondering the same thing about the 9:42. It came to my attention with the new "large iPhone" displays. I'm sure there is some hidden meaning to it....

perhaps it's the month that the 3G version will be released?;)

It could be 9+2-1=12 or it could be 9-2+1=7 so July or December

it means that anyone who has put more than one nano-second of thought into it really needs to reconsider their priorities in life.

i know we're all into the iPhone, but this is a bit ridiculous.
