    The following is a link to the new G5 sphere info page. You can see all of the unannounced features. I saved this page as a pdf because I figured it was only a matter of time until Apple pulled the page.

    Daxter, you should really try to stay away from those sort of sites. keep coming to Macrumors and you'll eventually find out what all the good Mac sites are.:)

    Heh.

    The VR gave it all away. The window they had shown in the pic was classic Mac. Not to mention it WASN'T THERE.

    buggy as hell

    if apple came out with something like this sphere i have a feeling that a lot of problems will occur. I am not sure apple has perfected wireless technology comparable to that futuristic prediction. I like the idea though seems like something apple will do :D

    If it were to be real than there would have been something like bluetooth mentioned for hooking up the screen etc and not airport.
    The g5 sphere has been going around quite a while though, so it's time for some revision, not?:p

    Would be nice though

    Naturally it's a fake. It would be nice to see technology moving in this direction, though.

    Personally, as soon as I get some money together I'm getting a logitech cordless freedom desktop. Sexy black and silver cordless optical mouse and cordless keyboard.

    Wahoo! Apple could do a nice job of this. Cords are a thing of the past. While I acknowledge that we aren't up to the stage where the monitor can be wireless, I think that Apple's ADC connector is genius. A great step forward. I just wish PCs could use it.

    I dream of a day when we can use the Firewireless port for DV cameras. I look forward to a time when the tangle behind our computers is gone forever.

    Hell, I want to even get rid of the cables IN the machine! Just throw the components in a box!

    Re: Would be nice though

    even though it's fake, it's believeable that apple would make something like this. not many companies are like that.

    Something like, yeah.

    The monitor still needs a cable, though, and power is always an issue.

    Damn you Tesla, come back and finish your work!

    Anyway, yeah. If apple do something like this, I hope it's better made than this one!

    In all truth, a sphere is probably a horrible shape for a case. Waste a fair bit of space in our square centric world, both internally and externally.

    Then again the new iMac is half a sphere, so....

    Personally my life goal is to make a PC case out of Lego. I'll get around to it one day!
