    It is a little know fact that the design for the new iMac came about by accident and was not all that original. While developing technology for a possible handheld device apple was registering domain names and and following thier normal naming scheme they considered the name powerpod as the big brother to the ipod but when they tried to register http://www.powerpod.com it was taken but instantly they recognized a great design and immediatly began work on the new imac....check it out for yourself





    I am of cousre kidding, very bored, and just having a little pre macworld fun

    I'd hope it was true!

    I think one of my favorite facets of I.D. is "expounding" on something already done... and I think this would actually give apple cred... at least IMHO.

    They see something, are inspired by it and get to work. Would be cool. I can see Ive grinning a bit thinking "flat panel iMac...there it is!"

    Especially after the walk in Stevo's garden, seeing this is a grassy field..... inspiration. yea!
