    I need to see the movie before I make a decision. That's a pretty lousy screensot.

    Whatever is in that picture is real. Whether it's an iWalk or real Apple product in a different story but that thing is a real thing

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

    That reminds me.

    I miss John Denver and that old guy. What was his name? Oh yeah, George Burns.

    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)

    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.

    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....

    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.
