Where are iPhone / iPod / iPad firmware files stored on my computer?

Apple doesn't go out of it's way to tell you where iTunes stores the firmware files it downloads before it updates your iPhone / iPod / iPad Should you ever need to access these files, it helps to know where to find them.
Firmware files have an .ipsw extension and can be found at the following locations:
On Windows XP :
Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
On Windows Vista/Windows 7:
Users\\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
On Mac:
~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates

one stage or another, every man woman or child will be faced with the issue of iphone for sale. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, its influence on western cinema has not been given proper recognition. Crossing many cultural barriers it still draws remarks such as 'I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole' and 'i'd rather eat wasps' from the upper echelons of progressive service sector organizations, who form the last great hope for our civilization. Though I would rather be in bed I will now examine the primary causes of iphone for sale.
