Anyone ever heard of Apple hiring security at fedex or ups for a launch?
I came across an article where it said Apple hired security to hold products back till launch day. Anyone know or heard of this? Here is the article
EXCLUSIVE: Apple & Verizon Begin Shipping iPhone 4; Holding Distribution Until February 10th | LEi Mobile
Personally I think it's false let me know what you all think

Why would Apple hire security at EVERY Fedex AND UPS location around the country? That would be quite expensive if you would ask me, not to mention.people have called and Fedex said there is no hold on the items. And even with all them arriving Monday, thats solid enough as they want them delivered then. If they wanted to hold them back until the tenth, they would have just simply not shipped them.
Looks like the author of the article is Angry that they are still on AT&T if you ask me

Yeah, I'm sure apple is hiring security personnel because of this launch. So, FedEx gets extra security at it's locations only when an iPhone is shipped? God help the other BILLIONS of packages that they handle, they are in grave danger I suppose.
(Btw, the anagram of that site name is "Lie" mobile.)

I will be shocked if we don't get our iPhones as noted on the UPS or FedEx delivery tracking pages---Monday or Tuesday for most.
As joekawasaki said, the article was written by a 17-year-old. This kid claims to be an "expert" at many things, including reporting (and being an "executive" ). I don't think so. He based his "story" on no facts whatsoever, just that it has happened before so he wouldn't be surprised if it happens again.
The headline was written to grab the attention of those of us who are looking for any and all information so traffic to his little Web-site increases and maybe some people will register.
