Cool. Seems totally legit.

I think the new iMac will look cool, and be cool(G4 baby), but iPhoto seems kinda like a waste of time. I guess for the average consumer, it wont be....those who have never even heard of photoshop. At least iTunes is an application that all users can use, lower or higher end users.

agreed

I'm sure the fact that Time's Canadian web site has the entire article is probably a big time goof.

it's too bad. :( Steve/Apple have worked so hard to keep this a secret.

This may also explain why Steve moved his keynote.

Holy Cow!!

This info is being spread all over the place...I've already seen 3 other rumor sites with the pic and link!

TIME canada.com is being hit hard...it's becoming difficult to load the pages.

Steve's gonna FREAK. Unless he's got so much up his sleeve on Monday that he won't give a s*it about this little guy being revealed already.

(and, in my opinion, it looks sorta goofy...)


Ah, well...here's to that being just ONE of the many fun surprises at Macworld!

does THIS live up to the hype???

This certainly has a feeling of being real. TIME isn't Spymac and isn't known for hoaxes... and I doubt they'd play along with a disinformation campaign.

Given that, a G4 half sphere LCD iMac hardly lives up to the hype... so I hope Steve has (a whole lot) more up his black turtle necked sleeve.

I am not in the market for an imac, so imac's are not what I was looking forward to seeing tomorrow, but I think this thing looks pretty cool. What gets me really excited is that if the imac has a G4 in it, it seems like the chances of a G5 or a really boosted G4 apollo being announced tomorrow are much more likely. lets all cross our fingers.

Yeah, I think it's pretty goofy looking to. Notice the date on the web article says January 14th. Whoops.

Now, I'm an Aussie, and have nothing against Canada or Canadians.

But it would be funny if Apple's new slogan was "Blame Canada" with the South Park tune of the same name playing in the background! :D
