Hey, anybody knows what application the umbrella is? I never saw it before. You can see it in the Numbers demo. Maybe I'm just slow and it's nothing new :rolleyes:

It's an old app that was available on the PowerMac G5's. The later versions had water cooling and sometimes the water would leak through the screen. The umbrella app would launch a giant umbrella near the top of your screen to keep water from smearing your documents and such.

Actually though I don't think it's new but I can't remember what it's for.

But didn't Jobs announce at MWSF '05 in their first of many environmentally focused efforts that that would be switching to hydrogen cooling for the PowerMac G5? I think that is what the attached image is for.;)
