    Not sure if this lends and validity to this or not, but I forgot to post that the Flickr user's name is Gizmodo_1. Could be someone who works for Gizmodo.

    The iPod nano invite was a jean pocket and the FrontRow was a curtain. Apple is kind of known for using "abstract" backgrounds.

    Yeah but at least those made sense - the iPod Nano fit in the jean pocket, the curtains represented movies/entertainment (Video iPod, iMac).

    But wood? Shrug....:rolleyes:

    They weren't abstract. The nano invite was a picture of the change pocket on the jeans, Steve referred directly to it when he pulled the nano out of that very pocket.

    The curtain was a theatre curtain announcing the arrival of videos on iTunes and an iPod capable of playing them, as well as a new Mac interface that allowed for couch-based navigation of media.

    The backgrounds were heavily tied into the release.

    I still like my OS 11 special event invitation...

    Yep, a whole new style for a whole new OS:

    Wish I hadn't lost my other mock-ups:

    - Magnifying glass iPod video invitation, "and you thought a 12" screen was small."
    - eMac, iPod mini "You won't guess what we're discontinuing next" special event.
    - The beer-powered BoonPod.
