No presales for the iPhone

According to a Cingular document, the iPhone will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

The Boy Genius got his hands on a Cingular/AT&T sales brief for the upcoming Apple iPhone. Though we don't know for sure if the document is legit, it doesn't have any red flags that would denote it as a fake. And while it doesn't answer the biggest iPhone question (the release date), it predicts the handset's software will be five years ahead of any cell phone.

According to the document, presales of the iPhone will not be allowed, and there will be no waiting lists for interested customers. The document then repeats the prices for the phone ($499 for 4GB, $599 for 8GB) and warns that there should not be any additional speculation/discussion about pricing. It also cautions against providing specific release dates to customers and repeats that we'll see it "sometime in June." One step forward, two steps back.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
