Someone save them fast.



Pal. It's an Internet service software that is basically the "Mac Desktop" for the Internet. Not a .Mac-like thing. Completely new thing. Coining the terms:"Illuminate the Internet.""See the Light" "Green Light to the Internet" Should be able to be used on Windows. Should be a "switching" tool to get Windows users on a Mac-based subscription.

    It could all be a cruel hoax... Damn you Adobe for creating Photoshop!!!



    It certainly looks genuine. The question is... what does it do?

    Green Light...

    the Internet...



    Forget discs. Forget synching...



    Pal takes your desktop and puts...

    your fingertips using Mac OS X 10.3...

    can take your life on the road...

    use your computer and Pal to fix...

    problems. So what are you waiting...

    see the light.




    It's all very cryptic.

    No, its not. Sounds like online User profiles. Sort of like under NT. only available through internet. Would be real cool. If its true.

    It's very vague, but the look very authentic.

    if these are pack shots (thats a big 'if'), then the product must be pretty ready to roll. for 'it' to work it needs:



    -- 10.3 (announced WWDC but shipping when?)

    -- new isync



    plus a *big* RDF special launch event...

    Everybody on spymac that's commenting on those pictures is suddenly pointing out 'rendering artifacts' claiming that they are rendered in some 3D app. What they are pointing out look to compression artifacts to me, the ones from saving jpg's. I don't really believe 100% that they are real, but I haven't seen great reasons why not yet.



    Edit: Actually I have some issues with the corners and shadows on this one in particular. Whatever, we'll see, eventually.



    Edit 2: Forget it, I don't believe the most of it. But I still don't know where a 'render artifact' would be seen. Now I'm tired and confused.

    The fact is, the pictures are not obviously fake. Anything which could be a rendering artifacts could also be from the camera or the compression.

    the text mentions things which Harald and others have talked about in numerous threads; over the air syncing etc. not proof, but makes me think it might have a ring of truth to it

    FAKE?

    REAL?



    Doens't sound like something new and groundbraking to me. Maybe just another name for iSync. Big deal.



    Looks kinda fake. Is that supposed to be a picture of the box itself or a picture of a banner with the box on. To me the corners seems too sharp. On real boxes they are rounder than that.

    The two last ones are already removed.



    That means Apple sent some lawyers to Spymac...no?

    That was fast. Looks like the leaks have finally begun.



    I am silently thanking the heavens if will be labeled "Pal" instead of "iPal".



    Can anyone describe what the pictures contained?

    a front pack shot of a box (or maybe manual) for something called 'Pal'. it had an 'aqua' look lightbulb logo on it in green



    a similar shot with little orange blobs under the lightbulb and 'sync over the air' written underneath



    a half obscured advert/manual cover/advert listing the features. requires 10.3 and syncs your user/home profile/directory type thing between computers.

    From what I've heard from friends (and I'm not saying these pics are real - since I've never heard the word 'Pal' thrown around before) this could be much bigger than iSync. Think more along the lines of 'your home directory anywhere you have a net connection'.



    Documents, preferences, the whole nine yards...



    Seems like a lofty goal and would have quite a number of roadblocks (internet speed etc) but something like this would be really cool.
