9:42! Still? What’s The Deal?
Crazy iPhone fanatics, such as myself, have watched many iPhone commercials before the phone’s release. Ask any of us what time it was on the iPhone (in the commercial), and you will likely merit a swift accurate and response. 9:42 of course! This has been consistent in almost every commercial I have watched. (9:41 has also appeared)
In the newer commercials such as “bet,” this has stayed the same. Frankly, it is kind of scary. When I saw “bet,” the first thing I noticed was the time. I was amazed it had still remained the same for many months. It reminded me of many theories I had heard about the clock.
“What time was displayed?” Ha! That question has a simple answer, but to answer “Why?” requires greater skill. The iPhone was introduced at 9:42 during the Macworld Keynote of 2007. I wonder if the “9:42” developed from this critical introduction, or if it was predestined. Chicken or egg? Many have also suggested that 9:42 refers to a Bible quote, specifically this one. Maybe, the phone just looks nicer with 9:42 displayed. It is possible that Apple kept the time consistent, to make fraud detection easier. Here’s a picture of when the Apple Store closed in May. The time…9:42. Surreal, I know.
Or… It could just simply be the time the phone was introduced, period. Call me weird, but I have a feeling that there is more than meets the eye.
Am I crazy? What do you think? Does the number have any significant meaning? Arrrrgg, must… find… answer!!
I think its ‘possible’ that there is geekdom at work here… anyone remember the answer to ALL QUESTIONS??
it represents the mark of the beast!
That is so cool , i love and live for stuff like this. My time now is….7:48 close but not the same he he.
Sounds like some people have way too much time on thier hands, or should i say in thier hands (pun intended). Hey, how about spending some time with the kids for a change instead of watching movies like 23 with Jim Carry and then concocting dumbass conspiracy theories.
I say, its just a prop phone.
Look at the TV phone when it rings.
My phone doesn’t sound like that.
It doesn’t look like that when it rings.
And it keeps time better then the TV phone, too.
I went back and looked at the spot.
Not much is accurate.
The Google search does not bring up those results.
And KAJ’s wiki page looks nothing like that.
If I had to guess, I would say its all just a movie playing on the iPhone, like the beer drinking app or that popcorn one.
