    have you ever wondered what program apple uses to make all of it's fancy smancy graphs on it's web pages? is that just from a graphics program do you think, or is it from a spreadsheet program? i was just poking around apple.com today and started thinking more and more about how keynote was used at the keynotes for quite a while but no-one picked up on it... could they be doing the same thing here, or am i just desperate for a rumor between all of these power book guesses?

    you can achieve all the stuff on the apple site in photoshop with a plugin or two (the glass one from AlienSkin will do all kinds of cool stuff), or even illustrator in the right pair of hands

    I always liked the Apple graphs, especially the new ones. They are just so typical Apple.

    But I don't know what they use to make them. :(

    They've found yet another application of the "Aqua" theme that just looks sooo good!

    Maybe that's how they do it, a subset of they've interface builder developer system??

    You don't even need a plug-in to achieve the 'Aqua' look... when I used to teach Multimedia, the 'Aqua' look was the most requested "How can we do that??" question....

    I spent so much time explaining to people why they shouldn't rip it off just for styles sake... suffice to say, come the end of a project 2/3 of all the projects handed in would use some kind of 'Aquafied' graphics in their work... :rolleyes: :p :p

    lil to lazy to link, but try any of the G5 pages...

    i know you could do stuff with that in photoshop, but it just kinda struck me as i was looking at one of them (not only, man, those look ten times better than excel) i thought about how keynote was used before our eyes for some time without us ever noticing...

    *sigh*

    and yes, i am desperate.

    you ever use excel?

    if it wasn't a ps job, then there's usually a table associated with said graph...

    They also use a secret Apple corporate only program to both design their new products and a lotto system to randomly generate a release date for a certain product. That's why we don't have new PowerBooks, because Steve picked a date that is for sometime in the late future. Damn, how the lotto sucks!

    Shhh! It's the spreadsheet component of Apple's upcoming MS Office killer - iOffice.





    Just kidding, I think it's a photoshop job. They took a real graph, aquified the bars, and put in a G5-looking background.
