Hmm i´m on 80% fake.

Would Apple list anything as "multimedia"? Isn´t that almost as bad as "cyberspace"? Something from early 90´s. Whats multimedia about chess?

But the pictures looks like they were faked by the KGB

Yes, but it (the picture mentioned above) also has an old-style recessed apple logo. Unless they're going to change it again. I think everything they've done lately has the gel-cap slightly rounded-and-protruding apple.

I'll be the first gulliable chump to go on record and say "I Believe it's real"

I remember the cube rumors and the QS rumors. When they can't be real, they usually are.

Good work....looks much different than the "iWalk" indeed. I can't think of an Apple product past or present that this could have come from, and I'm sure they're very specific about what goes on the badges if it contains their logo...

But it also looks too "black," for lack of a better word, to be anything they would release now. Looks like Newton plastic - what gives?

Fascinating indeed.

I wish I could get all the movies working, but by the thumbnail shots of them I noticed something interesting: the screen can be used either vertically or horizontally. Nifty.

OK we are all done!! All movies are up! All pics!! No passwords!!

Go get them!
post #217 of 588
ok, here's the deal... right click on turnaround.mov and bootup.mov, and save em to disk. Then, when you try to run bootup.mov, it will say it cant find turnaround.mov. Click on search, and then tell it where turnaround.mov is. The clip will then play.

It appears to have ports for headphone, microphone (!), video (?) and firewire. What is that big thing?

Well, I got the damn thing to work. I'm still not convinced either way . Basically, it flashes a screen saying its booting, then goes into that notebook screen. The hand rotates the dial a bit, clicks the button on the bottom, and the orientation flips from horizontal to vertical.
post #227 of 588
Go frame by frame on bootup, when he moves the apple logo to change the orientation

the logo jumps 45 degrees in the space of one frame, but his finger does not move the appropriate distance.

its also very hard to tell whether his finger is touching the device at all...
post #228 of 588
it doesnt shift when he rotates the dial, it shifts when he clicks the button.
post #229 of 588
Logo on the wheel i mean, the apple.

Watch it as he spins it with his finger, it moves ~45 degrees in one big jump
post #230 of 588
im now totally perplexed
post #231 of 588
okay, i'm about 60% sure it's real.. the most recent thing that bothers me is in the bootup.mov video, the wheel looks really flimsy, too easy to move by mistake and probably too easy to break.. not great for a pda which you're supposed to be able to throw into your bag.

btw.. in the turnaround video, you can see a big port, which looks like its possibly a serial port.. not only do macs no longer use serial (especially in X) but apple would never put a port that big and ugly on a pda.. maybe its a developer's only port?.. to be gotten rid of in the final version?..

damn, it looks good.. can we all agree?
post #232 of 588
Bootup movie is still broken for me (from SpyMac) but turnaround works (inconclusive). Anyone else hosting a copy of Bootup that works?

post #233 of 588
Isn´t it a bit strange we don´t see some menu action on the .mov? Could that have been too difficult to fake?

About .mov #2:
-Pen out of the bottom? Is that functional?
-The knob is as high as the unit itself. How will it fit in the vegan leather thing?

Can´t see .mov #3. Is it more convinsing?

Nope. Doesn't work for me either. The downloaded file is greyed out so I can't select it.

I've now seen all the videos and pictures posted. If that's a fake, or a fan mockup, it's got to be the coolest and most convincing one ever. Bootup.mov, which shows the image on the screen rotating with a quick spin of the dial is amazing. And, it DOES have a color screen, with an OS X style interface, despite the fact that the notepad app is pretty much grayscale. My guess: $799-$899.
