I'd say it's fake. The perspective of the supposed image doesn't look very Apple, and why the hell would someone take a picture of the screen rather than take a screenshot or save the image? :confused:

Well, im not very good with computer lingo. but wouldnt there be extra text after www.apple.com/ ? the bar on top is the website for the home page.

I dont know though. all I know is the really easy stuff, im trying to learn though.

Yeah, you're right, it's not. Remember all the discussion of Apple + Newspaper/Media having talks? Why then, would that result in the Tablet/Slate showcasing the WSJ via Safari? If anything, I anticipate a new App, specifically for news publications.

Oh, and like I've said before. Apple wouldn't be dumb enough to have OS X window controls on a 10" device. Your fingers aren't small enough to accurately close/minimize a window using native OS X window controls.


My $0.02.

Nah, that would be the correct URL. Apple often put product placement on the homepage. For example, right now, it's still the iMac. :)

EDIT: Also, I just noticed the & symbol. Apple don't use that. It's always the word 'and'.

I also forgot to mention that Apple likes to demo fairly recent movies (such as Star Trek on the iMac), not a movie that came out two years ago now (Wall-E).

Fantasy mockups typically reuse elements from current Apple products; Apple creates something new. Remember all the iPhone mockups that had beefed up iPod interfaces? All wrong. It's a new product, it'll have a new interface.

Yeah right. The Apple tablet, complete with photos and video, was leaked onto the front page of apple.com. :rolleyes:

When one tiny chunk of text with the G5 specs was accidentally posted on the PowerMac G4's page on store.apple.com, it was news on every major tech site on the internet.

If Apple accidentally posted photos and video of their tablet, which has been rumored for probably the last 5-6 years at least, on their *front page* - the entire world would know about it.

Something like that web page will be on in-house apple screens as it's created and long before it ever goes live at Apple.com. Someone could have secretly snapped a cell phone picture of the screen when they weren't supposed to and eventually made it outside to post.

Could be.
Doesn't matter.
We'll know the truth eventually.

But how can it appear on www.apple.com and not something like www.apple.com/beta/tablet_startsite_test or so?

Even if it was in-house (regardless of all the points that point to fake), how can they use the www.apple.com address without the outside world getting wind of it?

Oh yes those were the days.... Apple's G5 mishap was known to the world. indeed this tablet leak is very dubious. :p had such an incident occurred the world would know about it.

I'm glad the world wide wet was not around when I was fifteen. Such drivel you can do at that age.

Are you really that daft to not see that those have been posted already? And what's with that thread title?

You seem to be spamming I suppose...
