    I just showed this to my wife. She agrees that it's totally impractical. I'm sure Apple will come up with something much better than I did.

    Interesting, though I can think of a few improvements.

    AW yeah, now that looks really nice. For me also, that's the best mock-up yet. Possibly a white Apple logo would stand out more but silver is good. That one just a couple of posts back is quite nice to but I don't like that it projects through the back. Surely it would be more like those auto-cue things people use during speeches.

    I like this one as well. I have never understood why people don't like the brushed metal look. I happen to be sad that it's disappeared from the desktop. I think it's much more attractive than the bland grey we have now.



    As far as the one above goes, one of my improvements would have been to include a one way mirror layer in the rear. They have those that can be activated with a very small electrical current. When the computer turns on, it is activated, so that you can maintain privacy.

    The one you posted was great. You could actually fit a computer in that one.

    A 30" all in one computer is kind of stupid anyway. The point of an all in one is that it's compact. It's not going to be compact if it's 30" diagonally.







    99% of the time? That is wrong, but I think you just pulled that one out of your arse.



    Not compact compared to a tower? Pass what you're smoking over here!



    Glad you don't work over there.



    ps I still think we will see new models today. Well, I hope.

    So no iMac update today. Does the iMac get a silent update like the MBP/MB oder do we have to wait for the next big event?

    Ssshhhhh !!!! I'm not a windoze user.

    I tried to get a contextual menu : nada.

    I have no idea of what your instructions mean:

    I didn't get any such option on OSX Safari.

    I think I need to know how to get the pics URL instead of the entire web site's.



    What is a "picand" ?



    Be mean to a doggie, and you will be re-incarnated as a big, red, fire hydrant.

    I'll try again, and I will beat myself to death with a chair if I fail.







    Thank goodness.



    I just clicked on the pic to get it by itself in it's own window, noticed the URL was now pic specific, so I used it.



    No chair then --- sorry.



    I once nearly starved to death on an escalator : there was a power outage.

    *******





    Looks like I'll waste my vacation playing with some other toy.



    Maybe I'll get an iPhone and pay Verizon off for my contract.



    Q1 :

    If I get an iPhone , will I be able to surf the net via my Airport 80211/g alone ? Or will that be crippled unless I activate the phone service with ATT ?



    I'm thinking of letting my Verizon run out -- 03/08



    Q2 :

    Anybody hear of any discounts with service contract ?

    Brushed metal iMacs, lol. Guess someone was a little off there. Besides, do you know how UGLY brushed metal would be? Anodized aluminum like the iPod nano's would be awesome, but brushed metal a la Finder would be dreadful.
