    I took this picture shortly after unpacking my G4 iMac when they first came out.

    It was a bit of fun that further developed the pay-off gag in the 'animated Mac in a shop window' ad that Apple ran on TV at the time.

    By shooting from a slightly high angle, the CD drawer becomes more obviously a smiling mouth, the Apple logo a nose and the style and proportion of the pro speakers made them totally perfect for the eyeballs, the round base made a perfectly proportioned head too.

    Everything fitted so perfectly together that I assumed everybody was playing the same silly game with their iMacs too, but it appeared that they weren't.

    Macs throughout the years have often had a smiley face on the start-up screen, my whole Mac smiles.

    It seems to epitomise what Macs are all about.

    I'm going to try that right now with my iMac.
    edit: I can't do it. My speakers keep rolling off. :(

    Hint ..... You may need to use some duct tape to hold the speaker wires tight where it can't be seen and a little Blu-Tack to stop the speakers sliding down.

    You'll also need to take a second picture of the screen without the drawer open and Photoshop it in place to hide the eject symbol on the screen when the drawer is open.

    It was only a special pose for the picture. It's not really like that all the time in real life :)

    Maybe I need to buy better quality duct tape. The stuff I use leaves little grey bits of adhesive behind when you peal it off and I'm afraid that I will mar my beautiful white iMac if I try it.
