Yeaaa mate I do recall when Apple used a lot of Adobe Garamond, IIRC?
Back when I was a wee lad just learning mah web design and typography.
Bought my first Mac in 2001, an iBook G3 I believe.
There's still two possibilities in my mind. A: This is a very elaborate fake. B: Without Steve realy actively involved this kind of stuff can slip out. Design-wise the sudden switch to a Nature picture on the disc is not something you would really expect from Apple.
And yes, like I said before, I remember when Apple was in deep love with Adobe Garamond and that gelatinous blue-ish pseudo-3D stuff ie. Aqua. I have been surfin the Apple website since about the year 2000 so I think I know a little about what I am saying.
All the public branding out there for Snow Leopard really does stylishly, sensibly tie-in with how they are positioning Snow Leopard as "Leopard-gets-even-better". To totally ditch the space imagery for a animal picture is abrupt. Not saying it can't happen, it's just very strange.
I think the nature picture box, if it truly originated somewhere in Apple HQ, is a honeypot
of sorts to trace leaks.
