  • I've got a 233MHz G3 iMac (98 ) and a 333MHz G3 iMac (99).. They've lasted great for nearly 5 and 4 years, respectively. I feel you, DanMacMan. I'm waiting on either a sufficient line of credit, gift, or an upcoming settlement to get my next Mac, wh…
  • I agree, pscates. Target, Old Navy, and even to some subdued extent, Sears. Lots of great design happening in retail. But after the big retro boom, tech-looking phases, minimalism, I think the next big thing is going to be military-looking stuff.…
  • Wowwwwwww, Bioflavanoid has the best setup ever I wish I had all those Macs. Hopefully we'll get our settlement (dumb refrigeration truck running a red light smacking into us, says he didn't have any brakes ), and then I'll buy my Lapzilla, and…
  • The guy in Iraq is using an iBook, silly.
  • I've been here since '99, I think I've had a few different names, though. Mostly permutations on my name. And for a while I used 'iNnoyed' because it seemed punny at the time. But mostly brad l. bower. I remember when they first reported on the Cine…
  • Actually, correction. Thinner, more refined, and more austere than retro is this Appelele mockup which bears some resemblance: http://theapplecollection.com/design...fulmac_r7.html If the PowerMac design is close to this, I might consi…
  • Of all the mockups I've seen, and especially the ones posted in this thread, considering the XtremMac as a mockup, I think the XtremMac is the best-looking, most realistic, and most Apple-like. Sure, a bit retro, but retro-futuristic, stylish, and s…
  • Favicons made out of text are stupid. That's what URLs, titles, and the rest of a document/website are for, not icons!! The only respectable favicons are the ones with the unique and recognizable porthole design using the AI grey/bluegrey colors. …
  • A good point, though not exactly what I was interested in discussing. I might as well not edit my original post because you've quoted it, but I do agree that they are not necessarily Iraqi, but they do represent the region, and seem to be on the sid…
  • Whenever I get bored watching TV, I try to watch TV while sitting/bouncing/rolling around on my big exercise ball. It makes it so much fun. But I had never thought of using it while sitting at my desk!! I need to get a taller ball, though. What a gr…
  • Funny mockups, but nothing Apple would ever crap out... still, I'm quite confident that there's an iPhone in development, it would be massively successful, and reinvent the meaning of a mobile phone for the masses. And it'll be beautiful. And quite …
  • I'll get one with my tax refund. Probably not the 40gb version, more than likely the middle-of-the-road one, if it has good features (I don't need massive space, I only have a little over 5GB of mp3s right now). And I'll either get it at the Apple S…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Nebagakid I have this friend that WANTS to get an iPod, but I keep on telling him wait because I know he will waste his money if he buys it know and a new one comes out very soon. Also, the 5GB's are out of stock....th…
  • Apple would be pretty dumb to try to make a big deal out of any new product in the next week or so. Things are just happening so fast, and it's still new and exciting, and emotional, to the American people. Apple needs to wait until their minute att…
  • I like the old smileys. They just were. The new ones.. they are more "Trying to be." Does that make sense? No? Oh well. (I'd put a smiley here, if they were the old-style ones.)
  • Aww, I knew you was kidding, g!
  • Defiant, I told you to stop mass-mailing those out. If you think you're getting any dessert tonight, you can just think again, mister! I understood what Anders was saying. Should I be worried now? And g, I am the original Brad of these f…
  • Fine, be that way! If you can't admit that you're all obsessed with me, and like to ogle at my pictures all day long, then it's your problem, *not* mine.
  • Speaking of aesthetics, those smileys are cheesy and ugly. Please god no. I would like to see, however, an entirely new smiley set, possibly based on the iChat smilies (and in alpha PNG so they blend all nice without being pixelized-looking, a…
