iMac 2.0

iWalt on iMac

Apple announced their new iMac today. It’s a nice set up. Particularly the 700/800Mhz G4 processor in there. I didn’t see that one coming. Apple’s not going to sell any towers for a while I suspect. Where’s that G5? iPhoto was announced as well which is a snazzy little photo handler. I was worried when I didn’t see my camera on the list of supported gizmos but I hooked it right up and it worked perfectly. More than anything else, I’m so happy that Apple has completely discarded CRT monitors. And I’m pissed that “iCards” is still a global nav element at Apple.com (it redirects to iTools, why?). Anyway, I’m hoping to sneak over to Moscone tomorrow at lunch and try to stuff a couple of these new iMacs into my pants and then pull the fire alarm.

It could work.

[Update: I’ve switched the photo on the right to demonstrate how great iWalt.com would look on one of these snazzy new gizmos. If anyone has the means, I highly recommend picking one up.]

I really don’t need to think about Walt stuffing anything down his pants

Well, you’re in luck Sam, it wouldn’t fit in my pants. It is darn purty though. But I have to say, in all honesty, the two that I got to drive had very wobbly screens. I hope that the neck is a lot more solid than my first impression.
