    Nearly a week ago, my good friend, Zweben (A graphic artist, like myself) and I were rather bored. We were looking over the (at the time) recently proven fake image of the video iPod:

    http://www.macshrine.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/02/103357149_ebe5a6a8c71.jpg

    We decided it would be fun to see how everyone would react to actual high-resolution high-quality images.

    Zweben went ahead and mocked up the screens, and my brother and I took the pictures of my 30gig iPod 5g.

    Here's are the originals, as proof:

    IT'S TRUE!

    He's taking credit for some of the vPod photo fakes, and showing us the original photo's used to create the fakery.

    woo-hoo:rolleyes:

    Think how bad it'll be when Apple finally releases the vPod. Everybody and their uncle will be taking credit for predicting the obvious.

    I think we need to affix the 'Please do not feed the trolls' sign on the front page.

    I'm sorry but did you assume that using the U2 video pics that apple has on their website it would fool us or something?

    Actually, those fakes hardly fooled "everybody". If memory serves, they were debunked pretty quickly.

    In addition:

    What you got right / stupid mistakes we made:

    1 - Typoed the remaining time on the eminem track. Was supposed to read 1:09.
    2 - Ice Age 2 duration didn't match up with the trailer, as it was supposed to.
    3 - No EXIF tags. When editing was complete, layers were combined, copied and pasted directly into preview and saved as a jpeg from there, leaving the image with an empty history.
    4 - Need to make my brother get a manicure. :p

    What you got wrong:

    1 - The perspective of the iPod hardware is not wrong. That part isn't modified. It's a photo of a real 5G iPod.
    2 - The compression artifacts do not give away the editing. All of the source images were uncompressed. Compression only occurred after final editing.
    3 - So called brush marks that appeared when the image's contrast was raised were reflections placed over the iPod / Hi-Fi intentionally.
    4 - The "line through the screen" in the second picture was not the crease where two ipod screens were edited together. It was the reflection of where the ceiling meets the wall.
    5 - The tone of the text / logo on the back of the iPod were intentionally different, as proven here in an unedited picture:
    http://forums.appleinsider.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=61715&perpage=40&pagenumber=2
    6 - No headphone jack in the first picture? Thats because of the perspective.
    Etc.

    We'll be more careful next time! It's been fun! =)
