View Full Version : Leaked 6th gen iPod picture..

Hey Guys,

I just thought I take a quick snap of the new 6th gen asap, I know its a bit dark but I just arrived back home (2am). To my suprise a package from my friend in China had been delivered.

I know some people will immediately deem this as a fake and to be honest I don't care since the announcement is only days away.

My mate in China works at a distribution/courier facility which she managed to snatch several out of the box and decided to send me one since I did her quite a few favours in the past :)

The 6th Gen iPod also came with a copy of Quicktime 7.1 which has the new iTunes like gradients. I used the new Quicktime to encode a clip of 24 from a DVD I ripped earlier last week for a mate (new iPod export option).

More pics to come of Quicktime 7.1 and the 6th Gen iPod.

Im quite suprised this image hasnt reached the 700+ posts that the other "leaked" image recieved.

I am quite inclined to now say that this image is genuine,pureley because of the likeness of it to the other image. Anyhow it could be another photoshop jobby.

However i think i will wait untill the 28th and then express my final opinion :)

Only the weak sleep! Show us more pictures! the box, the back, the screenshot of quicktime pro, the menu functions of the iPod etc etc etc.

It certainly looks as if 24 is playing on it. I think this may be real. :confused: :rolleyes:

While you're at it, show us the post marked package that the "ipod" came in. If you say you do not have it, then you're a liar.
Besides the fact that you're a newbie, I think you're probably lying.

does this mean that 24 is coming to iTunes. DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!!:D

really, we need more shots, and tell me if 24 is coming. i held off of the 5g ipod because there weren't enough good shows that interest me on iTVS. 24 would have had me buy, but now i think i am going to wait.

That's the EXIF data embedded in the image. You can see it in Bridge or GraphicConverter, if you have those.

Other suspicious bits are the manual exposure (who would take time to mess with that and not flip on the light?) and the very sharp borders around the "TV image" that can be seen if you play with curves or levels -- nothing else is that sharply defined. Really now, what's up with this?

Agreed, thats an option but really its about proof - he aint given us any. 4-5 different angles and screens would suffice.

No, Steve made pretty clear that the 5th Gen iPod is principally a music player with video capability - not a video ipod. Brining out an iPod made for video would in effect create a new iPod line and still leave the current 5th gen in the market (at a lesser price point).

It's a long way of saying "BS". that's just a reflection of the light source in the original photo. What we have here is a picture frame.

I'm tempted to post a picture of a shaving mirror to see how many people would be willing to shell out $500 for it. :p

As much as I really want this to be real, the fact that he only posted one freaking picture, the bad quality, and my own total skepticism of tech rumors make me believet this to be a hoax. A great hoax, but nonetheless a hoax. But don't quote me on that if it does (though I doubt it) turn out to be real.

Yes, it does look like it might have been stretch out because when I compare it to my 5G, that screen is wider. I think he took the top of a 5G, added a little bottom of it to make it look like hte whole thing is there, stretched out the image of it, and then pasted a video on it. ;) :cool:

What? You've got it all wrong. He made the image (in five minutes) just to show how easily something like it could be fake, and the first time he posted it, he wrote directly above it something along the lines of "here's a picture I just made in Photoshop." He never turned himself in after posting the image or anything like that.

Here's a pic of the back of it. It's apparently the 30gb model but whats quite noticeable is the length. Its quite shorter than the original iPod.

Also, the external HD behind it is an IceCUBE II :)

I'm definitely not saying that this confirms it as real, its just a possibility. So what if it's smaller than the 5G itself? Apple could have made a smaller form factor all together.

The reflection of the blue light on the table in front of the 'iPod' shouldnt be there.

The light is coming from the disk thingy in the background and the reflection on the 'back' of the ipod is in the right place. But the light on the table shouldnt be there, unless that blue light is doing a 90degree turn after it passes the 'close' end of the ipod - its fake.

Unless it's a different light...

and really, even if this isn't a new iPod, I'm pretty sure it's just an old one lying face down, so the weird light thing doesn't seem to prove much.

(I think) there really is an iPod there, it's just a question of if it's new or not.

You can make a line up from the reflection on the desk to the light on the dick and its on a slight angle, but the lines are parallel. I'd be suprised if its different - but i'd be happy to be proven wrong.

So far Dr. Pepper hasn't posted any convincing proof of anything. He has used the same technique that people selling fake goods use - imply that the thing has been stolen. People here have then fallen into the trap of arguing about minor details like lighting - this keeps the focus away from the bigger picture. I vote we all just drop it now and stop him from getting any more attention. None of this means of course that there isn't a product something like this on the way!

I call BS...somebody getting their rocks off with a little prank at 2am. Nothing to see here folks, back to your porn surfing.

As my tutor, old bubble face, used to say: "make love and be merry, for tomorrow you may catch some disgusting skin disease."

This got bumped up from february? Jeez. I was thinking this was a new thread! It even says something about an announcement a few days away. I give up on the 6g rumors for a little bit.
