I have to agree with britboy there, I really can't see top apple people wandering around with prototype kit avialable for all to see.
That would be plain stupid!

I don't know. IF they are meeting with top software heads, a showing off of how well the next mobile units will handle the software might be in order. Sort of a reassurance for the developers.

Realistically, we all know that such a thing most likely exists, but wether its fctional enough, not too hot and doesn't swallow batteries whole, is another question. I don't see an army of execs toting around prototypes, but maybeits closer than we think. The raedon makes since, it could take advantage of Quartz.

And, there was that press relese from Aus., probably a missprint, but maybe not, thats what makes it fun.:D

Ha! Yeah, i love that film. Saw it a few years ago, and have wanted to own it since. If it's out on DVD then i'll be getting it as soon as i'm back in the UK.

I've been using it for about 2 weeks now i think. You've *probably* had it longer. Don't worry about changing your sig though, I was going to change my this evening anyway :)

that's cool. and the DVD is out and rocks really hard. yet another classic from the master david lynch. make sure you buy the original and not the "remake". it's pretty awful.
