    If you're going to create a globe shaped Apple, you might as well shape it and make it resemble a McIntosh apple complete with bite and painted in the old rainbow hue.

    It looks like a big white spider. Or a really garish an tacky globe. I love the SuperDrives' resemblance to a toaster, though.

    if you didn't see this "g5 sphere" already then youmust have been in a closet for the last year or so (i believe that's when it first appeared). sorry, but could someone at least make a little effort for NEW concepts?

    Seen this a million times before, but just realized that this guy has some incrdible ideas. I would love a "remote" svga jack for my monitor. That would be cool, but how many times do you need your monitor away frm your cd drives?

    one for 500!!!

    "In fact, at speeds of 10.4 gigaflops, the new 1.5GHz PowerPC G5 processor with Velocity Engine is up to 83% faster than a 1.5 GHz Pentium 4. (1)"

    at the rate apples going, it will take apple at least two more years to get to 3 ghz so either way i see it as a hopeless cause, at the moment. Apple should get texas instruments to build its processor chips.Texas instruments allready has risc processors with ddr ram, but at very slow speeds, but im shure they could be faster. I think they allready use rapidIO on the processors. I got this idea from a buisness week magazine article that says that texas instruments semiconductor division has turned a new page, and that there r&d department rivals thr r&d of intel, so i am shure they could come out with fast chips ten times faster that the "granny speed" of motorolla.
    Also is you have seen the newest austin powers movie check out the last line in my signature! lol.

    Yeah, I've seen that one before. Though you have to admit, that's quite an imaginative design, a little ingenious, too. Neat to look at though.
