    Appliance buzz
    Commentary: The chatter on Apple's new device

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS.MW) -- Depending on whom you ask, it's either a wireless tablet computer, a portable musical hard drive, or a digital multimedia hub. One theory depicts an integrated keyboard with a removable PDA. Some people even speculate that it's the fabled "Ginger."



    Now look at this mock-up I made 2 months ago (and was contacted by a hardware manufacturer to produce for Apple):

    No one will know until Apple announces tomorrow, but wouldn't this be strange ?!?!?!?

    If this thing has a keyboard like mine (which a lot of people thought was retarded) - I will be pissed off.

    That would suck, but hey you could claim to some degree that you designed it! On another note, I don't think I've ever seen this much speculation, which is probably just what SJ wants.

    I agree

    I agree with Spikey! If you really want a PDA, then get a Palm. At least there's software on the Mac to hotsync the things. And should Apple come out with their own, there's always ebay!

    It would be nice if Apple released something along these lines but its dobutful.I would expect Handspring or some other company to release something like it.But hey thanks for using my PDA picture on it :).

    pda can't be as bad as the current desktop market

    i hope apple could do something like this soon...while some my laugh now, the current market conditions are screaming for high tech companies to make something more than a central/main computer

    ENOUGH ALREADY!

    Christ almighty! How many times are you going to post the url to your friggin' lame ass website! Why not atleast post the original url from which you stole the images? And I don't mean on your site, I mean directly in the forum!

    Out of your 18 posts, atleast 4 of them have been plugs to your site. I think we get the picture.

    that doesn't stop porn

    many porno pix are also cut and pasted from some original site but that doesn't stop people from coming back and creating more of what is still the #1 business on the internet

    you have to realize, that pictures of mac products are like playboy centerfolds to some die hard mac techies

    check out http://www.apple-history.com if you want real apple "centerfolds"
