    That guy's a dork. Good luck proving that Apple copied the design from him, since everyone knew the new iMac would be an LCD, and nobody has a copyright on the "hemisphere" shape.

    That guy should sue Apple. They stole his design! Right down to the ports on the back of the machine! <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    Also, Apple designed the new iMac two years ago. This guy posted his six months ago. Now who's copying who?

    They even acknowledge that in the article, it should be obvious.

    Or maybe Jobs is right when he says it is an obvious/ simple design.

    Yeah, except that I'm cool.

    Actually, I only said "AirPort Base Station, onlar larger and wider to acommodate the 'guts'..." and mentioned how I'd always thought the iMac should have hardcore "tilt and swivel" capability.

    So, in a way...

    Hey pscates, don't post for awhile.

    I like the look of that 666 post count. You evil man.

    Why does everyone hate this guy? The shipping iMac looks very close to what this guy did. His is better because the power button is on the front.

    Because he's saying that Apple copied him. There's no way Steve saw this guy's picture in July and started designing it.

    I'm sure they had this design for much longer than that.

    He sure does get bragging rights though, he totally nailed the design, other than the power button.
