Now revealed: Apple's secret testing room for packaging designs

0. phoneArena 24 Jan 2012, 18:57 posted on

We all know that Apple suffers from OCD, so it should be no surprise that the company has a secret room where packaging designs are tested so that a person buying an Apple iPhone 4S has the perfect unboxing experience...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

This has to be the most ridiculous and unnecessary apple 'news' story article yet and is soley made to try keep apple hype going.

However the room is for testing how to get the box made with as cheap as possible materials while also being able to fool ifans into thinking the new boxing changes everything again and paying more for it for the 'experience'.

The box also is being tested in different formats to see which design would be harder for ifans to use and thus would increase the possibility of an ifan dropping an iphone by mistake apon taking the iphone out of the box,forcing them to by yet another iphone.

That's beyond OCD: that's CDO

(it's a joke, putting it in alphabetical order)

Its cool opening up an iPhone. It just feels special and different. Like they really put a lot effort in it. I know its not a big deal but I wouldn't expect anything less from apple. It just seems how it should be.

Opening an iPhone box is akin to watching molasses come out of a jar. Hold the top and wait for the bottom to slide out on its own into the table. 15 seconds later and wow! Wait, did I get a 4 or a 4S? I can't tell, the phone looks exactly the same. I waited for this? Dammit!

careful now,leave that iphone drop out the wrong way and it'll easily shatter apon impact with the table,they're fragile
