Hi everyone,

I noticed in this picture there is an Apple-style HDMI cable:

I can't find this cable anywhere on their store but noticed that engadget also had the same cable in their Apple TV hands-on article.

I can only assume Apple will be selling this cable soon?

I know it sounds sad and very fanboy-like, but I really want that HDMI cable to go with the Apple TV as it looks nice :)

Monoprice has black HDMI cables for next to nothing.

I realise you can get cheaper HDMI cables elsewhere however I'm just asking about this specific Apple one as I've noticed it in two separate places, but can't see it on their store.

It's called product art. It's all rendered on a computer and not actually a real picture taken with a camera. That cable has never existed.

The cable does exist, I've seen shots of it on engadget, I'll try and get them. But I was thinking the same thing, it's extremely similar to an iPod charger cable except black and hdmi.

It looks pretty real in this photo.

As a hardcore fanboy myself, I also wondered the same thing as the OP ;)

Apple $79
MP $7 a number of colors and shipped to your door.

Wondr if apple will try to force MP from selling inexpensive HDMI cables

I'll be damned, it is real! Either way, if they aren't selling it on the store right now then it will likely never be sold. Maybe they played with the idea of selling one and decided to not enter the HDMI cable market. I can't blame them for that honestly, we already have tons of overpriced HDMI cables out there.
