hey that looks real!!!!!........
FAKE-any photoshop user could create that in about three minutes.
idiots-quit wasting time
New Keyboards & Mice
That Photoshopped image is pretty lame. Can you imagine having a keyboard that big? No, the new Apple Pro Keyboard and Desktop Mouse will be Bluetooth-based peripherals.
Most likely, the keyboard will still have the two USB ports on the sides so you can plug it into the tower to recharge. The mouse will probably have a USB adapter too, but only on one end of the connector cable. The other will have to be a smaller interface to conserve surface area on the mouse. Maybe they'll include a cradle for it instead of using a cable.
This seems like the most plausable future for the Apple Pro Keyboard and Desktop Mouse.
See you all at Mac World in NYC.
Good prototype, but it's a little big and that may not be what the apple PDA looks like.
1) That PDA is the underside of a pro mouse with a OS X screenshot in it
2) Why the heck would someone put a hotsync cradle on a keyboard????
Yeah, I saw that a few weeks ago. It sounds improbable, but the concept, I think, is pretty cool. A few times I've had my visor hooked up to my mac, and someone walks by and the next thing I know, it is on the floor in pieces. A cable-less hotsync cradle would be really nice. But only if it could happen.
one more thing
i would like to know how many people actually would need a cradle attached to their keyboard???
especially since most mac users are students and professional graphics producers who have multiple machines..
I would need 2 cradles and some way to use it with my Lap top...I know, I know... I have to use a PC sometimes for software development. And for my NT box at work. the Cradle would not be that usfull... bring back the IR port like my Bondi blue iMac. One that works with stuff that is...
agreed... if anything, it should be on or part of the main machine...
still... interesting concept.
CANT ANYONE TAKE A JOKE..
All the pre macworld tension is getting to you people!!!!
Apple isnt going to release that keyboard so stop saying they are wasting your time.
If people didnt make these fake little pictures now-and-again everyone on this forum would be about as exciting as a Snow iMac.
Everyone likes to have weird and wonderful conceptions of what Apple will do next..
So just marvel at the people who waste there time making up these pictures for us, AND CONGRATULATE THEM for making ours days all a little bit more interesting!!!
Good work guys, keep it up!
it's all fine and dandy, but can't people do something with logical thinking once in a while??
go get layed
One of my favorite philosophers has always been Testicles. One of his favorite passtimes was masturbation, however it was his attitude that masturbatory fantasy should always contain the outrageous so the substance of real sex could be properly be appreciated by contrast with whimsical fantasy.
Chuckle, snort.......couldn't resist.
you can tell the PDA is just a screen shot from OSX pasted on to the back of a Pro Mouse.
Mischief, you are just plain messed up.
This discussion is pretty stupid now. But what I would like to see would be wireless peripherals. My mouse cable keeps getting wrapped around everything else on my desk and then my mouse won't leave a corner of the screen, etc.
Yeah, nothing better than disentangling from peripheral cables to get up and use the John. not to mention the earlier reference to cable-yank. The problem is in the approach being taken: Who wants to change AA batteries in their mouse?
hey, if it means i've got a cordless optical mouse, then i'll change the batteries
Wow...I actually agree with monkey on this one......never thought I'd see the day.......
i rule, sorry we got off to a bad start, i was in a bad mood, and i don't like seeing people be dumb
It's all cool.
Read! all of the page.
Um if you just read the info bellow the pic. you notice that it says
"This was concepted and conceived in the hopes that someone might find it to be an interesting and potentially useful hardware release. The Apple PDA was found on the internet and is not my creation."
Dream Mac Concept Pictures
Some incredibly talented artist created all these Dream Macs. These have been added to lots of websites claiming they are real.
Check these out you'll be well entertained and Apple might want to use some of these. I particularly like the trashcan design.
All of the images are Nice!!!
even if its fake its ...
Try making it flip from under the keyboard
or slide out from the side, removable, left hand sided,
make the pda screen act like a track pad for the mac, while your typing phone number in the "Apple on screen PDA emulator " make the sync button a mouse clicker when you want ... use your imagination .
