    Very interesting video. We all know it's fake, but that genie still looks cool even that small. Someday, this will be possible though. I would be amazing, truly amazing!!

    It's not out of the question now. A samsung S3C2440, which is in many smart phones and PDAs, has better integer performance than a 500MHz G3. Now, it doesn't have an FPU, but anyway...



    Even so, some of you may have used the Opie environment on iPaq Linux. It's actually pretty damn slick. I have an iPaq at work that is actually useful as a portable 'nix console. I think it may be the only case of an iPaq actually being useful.

    Totally fake, but that looked so cool. I have no need what so ever of OS X on an iPod that I can think of, but just watching that was kinda magical.



    Imagine the implications. Every one with an iPod having OS X..... Just might make them all think about getting a Mac...

    You're not the only one who thought that. It's kinda like switching without knowing it.

    Thanks, none of us had figured that out. We thought it was running Mac OS X!

    I think the coolest thing about this is how he managed to sync his movements with the video. Must have taken quite some practising! There's a funny bit at the end where he presses a button too early, so turns it into a 'triple-click' to compensate



    Definite bonus points for being the coolest Leopard fake out there at the mo

    The sad part is all the time he spent practising was a bit of a waste - he was obviously out of sync most of the time.
