MacEdition posted (http://www.macedition.com/nmr/nmr_20010723.php) an article in their annoying MacTheKnife-esque style regarding a rumor of an Apple branded Photo editing app:

the new package, tentatively dubbed iPhoto, will let Auntie Em and Uncle Henry modify and enhance their snaps with simple controls and create electronic greeting cards, calendars and other personalized cheesecake via an assortment of templates.

It seems iPicture might make more sense as Apple filed a trademark for iPicture in March (http://tess.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=3g2enh.2.13).

Did someone manage to grab the image of iPhoto before it got pulled? I can't seem to view it??

MacEdition had the whole Mac-the-Knife gimmick wrapped up, until the former MacWEEK boss (sorry name escapes me) spilled the beans that Mac-the-Knife was an amalgam character built out of genuine rumors fed into the grapevine and refined by SEVERAL "Editors" at MacWEEK into the ephemeral openly gay Deep Throat of the Mac universe (okay bad choice of words).

And since the "real" Mac-the-Knife was not a single person, how could MacEdition be forced to come clean with the fact that they are simply aping MacWEEK's former resident rumorogical utensil concept to garner more hits on their out of the way web site with very infrequent updates.

Lol... I'll bet you believe that the Weekly World News second-sources _all_ their articles, too.

BTW - the editor's name you fail to remember is Stephen Beale - the _last_ editor of MacWEEK.com, who would have a vested interest in presenting a, um, creative recollection of the history of rumorology in the Mac environ.

Don't believe everything you read (including this post - if you really care about the topic, do some digging. The truth is out there.)

And as far as being an "out of the way" website? Perhaps... but we don't just post schlock to see our hit numbers go up. If you'd bother to read the editorial statement, you'd see that we'd rather not post anything if we don't have anything worth reading (in our opinion, of course).

You know that old saying, pooly paraphrased here, about "keeping your mouth shut and being thought a fool rather than opening it and removing all doubt"?

Is The Gay Blade worth reading? Many people think so. Is TGB the same as MTK? Many people think so. The readers have to decide for themselves.

Couldn't make something more useless? My mother is not going to seat down on the computer to build a calendar. That is like some one in my school was playing solitarie in the Silicon Graphics Onix 2.

Why do not use that time to create an audio imput for iTunes to sync the images with an external audio signal ,and make it able to reproduce trhu the video out?

iToons doesn't have video out enable!!!

That is a bigger issue that iPicture, I can do the same post card in Photoshop, why the industry have to be so redundant?
