    These guys are having a contest to see who can design the coolest "not-yet-existing" Apple products. Some pretty cool stuff there already. Check it:

    Actually it's pretty close to what I'd like to see in an iPVR/iPod HDTV. A Mac that would fit into an AV rack.

    My favorite was the "iPT" and then the New Mac Mini.

    I like these concepts better.

    I would get a iPT though!

    Is it just me that thinks the iMac Mini idea looks, well, a bit Microsoft-ish? Looks like a grey Xbox 360 to me :confused:

    I like the "new macmini concept" but I don't think it should replace the macmini, but rather be its own product.

    Weird -- wonder what the deal is. I'm not having any problems getting to it at all.

    I'd like to see some kind of Apple-branded device that further integrates PDA functionality. Of course, it would need to be a phone too. Oh yeah, can't forget about the iTunes. Wireless internet access as well.

    Introducing, the Apple iEverything...

    I have the same problem after clearing the cache in both Safari and FF.

    On my PC, it does not redirect me anywhere other than where it should, and still happens to return a 404 error. :rolleyes:

    I expect this kind of behavior out of Vista, but not Tiger. Grrrrr... (pun) :D

    The Mac Mini.. *Shudder* I've been hoping to get a Mac Mini, but if that one replaced the current one.. I'd have to rethink my choice of Mac....

    The Apple Tablet there is awesome! I like the iMac Nano and the iPhone too though!

    As EricNau above I wouldn't want this to replace the mini, just be another headless option. Here's the concept I've put out before. Take the 17" iMac Core Duo, remove the LCD, lie it down like a DVD player, reorient the ports and the optical disc to the front and back. Provide a remote with screen and click wheel (think of a nano with BT instead of flash).

    Done.

    The iMac Nano is priceless! :D

    Seriously, though, I'm glad Apple doesn't release most of those products...like the UltraMobile PC - how many people have actually purchased those???

    A tablet done correctly would be interesting, as would a Mac Mini home entertainment platform...other than that, I'm not sure how popular a video iPod would be, especially if there was little affordable/high quality content available for it.

    The next big thing, in my mind = iPhone. I don't know where else Apple could go beside cell phones...??? :confused: :eek:

    Following up from yesterday, I'd pay for an adaptor for my TiBook that would allow me to connect a mag-safe power adapter to it.

    It's cheap insurance against my crazy canine...

    I like the iPod Video with the swivel screen. I think it solves a lot of problems (though obviously creates a few headaches as well). If you combine that with a cell phone and isight you've got your long-predicted portable video phone. All we need then is reliable 3G service. lol - which will come first?

    I thought the iPod Talk was a rather neat idea with the rotary dialing on the click wheel. I think it's a very attractive phone. I do however think a phone would be better suited with say, 3G iPod buttons for numbers, that would be pretty :rolleyes:
