    Regarding your PS, you missed the whole point of this video. Its not a video camera, but CGI, in that it is completely animated (based on images from the web....)



    Real, virtual, the comment still applies. Not being a real camera still doesn't escape the fact that the "camera work" is pretty cheesy. It reminds me of those computer banner ads where the product spins that turned me off computer technology for a while.



    At least it doesn't have the J J Abrams style of camera holding.

    There was no current iMac, no iPod, cube, half-dome, original transparent iMac. A lot was missing.



    However, they did somehow manage to flip around an iPad and get all the reflections correctly without actually having one.

    I never connected the Newton Message Pad to the iPad moniker before. This helped to clarify Apple's decision on the iPad name.

    The video would go so well with The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony."

    Cool stuff but...can't have a showcase of 'Apple Design' without the TiBook and the iMac G4, IMO. When I think Apple design, those are the two machines I think of!

    Although they missed out on the iPad display. The image was mapped onto the top of the modeled object, versus being underneath a top layer of glass, which would have dimension even if it is very thin. Still, everything looked pretty cool.

    Well and once again no mention of Dieter Rams \



    I was also amused that everyone (else) is pretending to ignore point that 3D Studio Max is Windows Only, though I'm pretty sure many have noticed

    How odd that they left out one of the most important Macs in Apple's history: the first iMac. Guess the shape or translucency was too hard to render. In fact none of the interesting iMacs were featured. And they colored the Mac 512 wrong (and called it a Mac I).



    Would have been more interesting to include more iPods. Basically they get thinner while the screens get bigger and bigger and the controls shrink.

    Very true.

    No Apple ][? No iPod? No "Pixar" iMac? No sign of original titanium Powerbook or G4 PowerMacs? No sign of OSX Public Beta, one of those software moments that says "yes!".





    Pfffft. Fail.

    Maybe they just wanted to show Disney the proper way to do Cgi, from what I hear these Cgi animations look much better then the ones in Alice.

    Several design lineages were gaping holes:



    Apple II > //c > Mac Portable



    and



    Newton > eMate > iBook

    I can understand the non inclusion of the iPod, but for me thew biggest omission is the iMac. The iMac was the start of Apple's reputation for beautiful innovative hardware design. The iMac saved the company, so to forget it in the history of Apple is a major blunder.

    The key omission was the Bondi Blue iMac, after all it relaunced Apple and started a complete revolution in design!

    OK guys seriously - did you not read the disclaimer - they were going for only those devices which followed the portability meme throught product lines to the iPad? I know - lots of good stuff back in the day. Yeah we get that.



    Heh, I wonder if they ran 3D Studio Max in Windows on a Mac? (just sayin')
