According to sources of El Channel Register, Apple UK has told its staff to forget taking holidays during the “first two weeks of October”, further fuelling rumours that the iPhone 5 ain’t too far off.
Worser and more horribler still, the ruling supposedly applies to those who had already booked time off. They’ve apparently been asked to cancel.
I imagine people who’ve already booked holidays abroad will be exempt. I, for one, would rather take a dump on the shop floor than flush a perfectly good holiday down the toilet simply because Apple told me to.
On the other hand, the selection process is incredibly rigorous. Apple filters out all those with a modicum of independent thought and anything less than 100% devotion to any and all iDevices.

The most recent date touted by the rumour mill for the iPhone 5's unveiling is October 4. Hey, that's a week today.
