Two things raise my suspicion. One, the blogger ends his post by saying it is probably just another rumor. But if it really was his friend sending the images from Cupertino, would he be sure it was true? ...or that his friend was playing a trick, but those are the only two options. Not a "rumor."
Second, I'd guess the MacTower would have a different look. Maybe not, but as shown it's a little too convenient for photoshopping.
