the funniest part is that it looks NOTHING like the original rendered image. Think they will admit it?

Thanks for the flashback to movie making history.

The first time I saw that web site I thought it was a spoof of rumors sites.

Are there any past examples of spymac.com coming up with any real "scoops" that didn't turn out to be complete BS? (I'm not saying there haven't been -- I'm actually asking)
post #16 of 588
I guess it could be faked but making a video seems like a lot of work. Honestly I'd rather see video of the new iMacs.

It looks like it has a case next to it. It's dark, prob leather, maybe that what someone said and they had an artist put together a iWalk that was dark and textured

yah.. spymac is generally a horrible site. But this thing looks kinda real to me, especially with the ipod-style scroll wheel. Maybe its just the tiny picture, but I am eagerly awaiting the movie.

Hmm.

If you blow up the photo, the edges around the iWalk thing seem a bit harsh and jagged, Could any photoshop or 3D composite artists weigh in on the likelyhood of this being a doctored vid/pic?

I'd bet on it being a hoax.

When is this hour supposed to expire? We'll see how good those spymac folks are with their iMovie special effects....
post #21 of 588
(out of moderator mode)

Didn't SpyMac have a photo of some ugly, lopsided silver thing that they called iWalk and were *so sure* was going to come out when iPod came out?

Funny how they stick with the same name, but have a totally different picture.

I think that John hit the nail on the head.

Feh. This is no more than a quest for hits on their site to secure advertising.

I did notice that the site looks to be hosted in Germany, I wonder if that would slow down the legal process any?

Impossible to say until we see the video, the picture is just too small. If you blow it up, the edges around everything look super harsh and jaggy. I am truly intrigued, though I'm keeping my expectation low, it looks kind of like a funky iPaq...

we shall see...

Perhaps the one hour notice is to be able to say "Damn. Apple Legal demands that we donĀ“t do the video. Sorry guys." That would seem like a legitimite story.

They forgot one thing: Steve Jobs is vegan.

What does this mean for iWalk: well, they claim a "custom fitted, soft leather case."

Whoops! Gee, unless Steve suddenly lost a great degree of his control over every product Apple puts out, or... they missed that detail.

These guys are having a laugh, but if Apple were to release something like this, why? Who would buy an iPod if they could have this? Thats why a PDA as we know it will not be made at Apple unless it makes us want to buy an iPod & iOther etc. Which means that SpyMac are shisto when it come to this.. They want 3 days of glory, with badly rendered (if 'rendered'' at all) product mockups and artist impressions...

I seem to remember the raging debate as to whether the slightly re-skinned G4 tower was a photoshop Frankenstein...it turned out to be real. The Cube turned out to be real as well.

I'm not comfortable in decrying the legitimacy of this thing....yet.

Let's see if a believable video is forthcoming.

Somebody PLEASE think to save a copy in case they get smacked-down. Folks could pass it around in the chat room later.

If it's real I hope it is app-laden like the PocketPC's because I've gone off Palms in the last few months. I also hope that it has a color display. Mono SUCKS.

Not even Apple Legal cares about Spy Mac...they still have their 10.2 screen shots up, which they probably ripped off of here.

That is a damn Game Boy Pocket!. Jeez!

But, I do believe that the iWalk is real and if it is, this is what we have been waiting for...

FWIW, spymac is run by canadians and germans.
