Photoshop: Steve's New Toys

This should be fun and easy.

Make what you will of one of these three frames from the Macworld keynote speech.

You really wouldn't want me to whip out my Photoshop "skills" on these images, or any others for that matter

First time I've seen the box for the mini, since I haven't had a chance to view the keynote yet. Heck, Apple's boxes look better than Dell PC's!

The bottom 2 are not linking/opening properly as the full-res versions.

The top one is, though.

That box looks like the GameCube box with the handle.


The facial expression on Jobs face = priceless. It basically says this is a vile/cheap product not worthy of the Macintosh name.

My guestimated time until the one with the mini itself is transformed into Steve holding Balmer's head: approximately 30 minutes.

** waits, check link often **

Funny. Reading your post made me realize I paid $300 for my PS2, and waited in line overnight for the privilege to boot. That mini is a sweet deal.
Back on topic, anyone think that last pick would be perfect if Steve was holding Ballmer's head?

EDIT - Which one of us should be most disturbed by the fact that we had the same initial reaction/idea?

Well, given that virtually every Photoshop contest has Balmer in it somewhere - usually right off the bat - it wasn't too much of a stretch to come up with that idea.

After doing this who wants to email it to Balmer.

That's because those ones are actual size as you see them above. They are small frames off the keynote webcast.

I think the second image should be of Steve holding his recently purchased piece of Virgin Mary grilled cheese off of eBay.

At least with Steve's wardrobe, cloning out areas of his shirt is pretty simple.

I think ThinkSecret's Nick Ciarelli would like it to show, ala "The Grinch", an X-Ray of Steve's tiny heart.

"Yes, Captain. It is a Mac mini, logically developed and aimed at luring potential switchers to the more elegant Macintosh OS X, predecessor of our ship's operating system."

I'm sure someone out there has a Trek outfit they can slap on Steve. Finding an image of Ballmer which makes him appear to have a mind....that'll be the hard part.

I did this in about 5 minutes because I have to head to class now, but hopefully tonight I will be able to do a decent rendition if I have some free time and a higher resolution picture.

Anyway, there was one more thing that Steve didn't announce until the end...

Why does it look like Balmer's head is coming out of Steve's torso.

Why does it look like he's pushing it lower?

Then you would see the back of Balmer's head.
