    By accident I found a site that features vintage "mod" furnishings, such as 60's and 70's lamps, 8-track players, etc. The new iMac is retro-mod!!! Why didn't this occur to me before?

    iMac is mod!

    somehow I feel the new iMac will be considered a classic by it's retro looks...

    maybe we'll see it in a future book on retro mod designs?

    The new iMac (why haven't the given it its own name yet?) will herald in the era of PC's that look futuristic. This neo-design wave will crash over the PC market, and then expand out to things like appliances, cars, & homes.

    they will copy the style...

    I'm sure at some point we're going to see other companies follow the trend...

    like many did with the iMac's color schemes....

    they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...
