    I just found this over at MacTechNews and im not sure if anyone else has seen it either. The Power Mac design looks pretty cool ;) same for the PowerBook G5

    I think the phone looks pretty cool, but I've never used a phone that has the slide-open face design, so I don't how ergonomic it is.

    I also like the mockup of the tablet:

    Though I admittedly still don't see what the point of a tablet is when you could just use a laptop.....

    :eek:

    The phone is simply beautiful - added bonus is that it revives a pseudo-iPod Mini formfactor. If Apple released one of these, I would buy one tomorrow. No question. Shame they're just conceptual - I hope Apple is watching.

    thats pretty cool. I really like the idea of the tablet and think it would be an awesome thing for apple to make. It would bring back the world of "handwriting"

    I loved the iPhone. Would drop my Treo 650 in a NY minute if Sprint offered this phone...

    Thanks man, here is another one. I gave it a stand so that you can turn it into a desktop when you want ;) . I think with the transiton to Intel and a good price drop at flash drives, Apple will finally have the technology to pull something like this off in 2007 maybe.

    That concept with the stand rocks. I like the idea of a tablet but I haven't seen one that I even would consider buying (besides the fact that it runs windows).

    Cool stuff, seen most of it before.

    I do really want to know the story on that iHome thing! Seen those pics before. Doesn't seem so likely anymore since the Mac Mini could easily move "that direction" ;) and its already in production.

    Another vote for the iPod-like iPhone. Just so elegant. ;)

    Coheebuzz, You should add some ports to your's. It looks freaking sweet already (esp. the black one), but it would look good with 2 fw, 2 usb, audio out and maybe a dvi out. That would be really awesome.

    BTW, what is that thing in the background of the second pic?

    The iTablet does look cool.

    Like you I am not sure of the purpose. Especially considering that the new PowerBooks are to be 25% thinner.

    Now an iTablet that you could fold up and put in your pocket would be cool, er. hot.

    The stereo already exists. There's an article on Wired, fourth or fifth one down.
