View Full Version : ducttape - "Introducing iDol"

Oct 24, 2006, 03:54 PM

I was tempted to make something for Asteroid, even though it's using an image of a Mac mini (with some change). I went back to the original rumors so I wouldn't get anything wrong (even the price I checked on). And I made sure not to put an on/off switch on it, because the original rumors pointed to Asteroid having a 'phantom' on/off switch. Although, Asteroid probably wouldn't have ended up looking anything like this, but whatever.

Asteroid was a rumored audio breakout box.

As we reported (http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2004/11/20041123012226.shtml) in November 2004, a story by AppleInsider (http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=756) revealed the plans by Apple.

Then Apple's legal department went after the leaker (http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2004/12/20041217183705.shtml), trying to pry information out of AppleInsider, PowerPage, and ThinkSecret. The legal wranglings didn't end until July of this year (http://www.macrumors.com/pages/2006/07/20060712213738.shtml) and that story was much more interesting than the audio device rumor.

I'm glad that ducttape has given us the final word on the subject. :D
