Appleinsider reports (http://appleinsider.com/article.php?id=925) the previously rumored iPod speaker (http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2004/12/20041229171133.shtml) was actually supposed to be one that plugs into usb to works with the shuffle and the mac mini. A reference to it can still be seen on the Apple Canada page (http://www.apple.com/ca/macmini/) (hurry up!) at the bottom.
Keyboard, mouse, megaphone and display sold separately.

THey aren't referring to that because they've deleted the mistake from the US and UK pages already.

I think the rumor community is looking WAY too far into this.

So what could it be? It sounds tacky.

I hope you're kidding.

Does no one remember when Apple also had "hands" in the "sold separately" footnote? I didn't see anyone going "OMG!! Apple Hands! It's gonna be the next iPod gadget!!!"

Exactly!

They're just gags to be funny.

Like "do not eat iPod Shuffle".

just because Apple's guys are having a little fun (easter eggs in prev OS's) doesn't mean apple's planning their own trendy white plastic megaphone. One of the mini's US pages said hand's not included in the fine print. It was humorous. The mini was being held... it does not mean Apple's developing bionic hands ala thing from the Adams family. This is why rumor sites are the butt of so many jokes.

Don't count on it. Dual-core G4 Megaphone is FAR more likely; however I only expect a slight speed bump.

Whoa, how did you get 3 colors @ 2 fps? Is it overclocked? I can only get 2 colors @ 1 fps. If so, does the noise of the added fan interfere with your vocal use of the megaphone?

Man, I hate to say it, but that is just underperforming. 2 colors? My megaphone clearly has a gray body, silver handle, and white rim. That's 3 colors, count 'em.

Serves you right for buying a rev. A megaphone! Hope you bought AppleCare.

Sadly I didn't. I guess I should have though; being Rev A and all.
