iSue – First pictures/video of headless iMac branded iHome: (I’m convinced now this is a wonderful prank, see update VI) (It’s just come to my attention that this has not hit /. or most of the Mac rumor sites, so you’d better hurry and see it before the site is overrun. I’m trying to figure out how to mirror it, but am heading out the door If that other link doesn’t work, I’ve mirrored it here — for academic purposes only, of course.) If Apple is suing a blogger for spreading the rumor there is going to be a “headless iMac,” I wonder what they’re going to do to the person who just released this photo and video of the iHome? (via: well, I can’t reveal my sources, sorry.)
Update: I have no idea whether or not these photos are legitimate or not (hey, what do you think I am, a journalist?). I have set up a mirror page of the linked-to page and will link to it momentariliy.)
Update II: Again, for the record, I am not actually blogging the rumor that this is legit. I am merely blogging the phenomenon of the release of this real or hoax set of photos/video, that I have mirrored here for academic purposes, only.
Update IV: At 8:57 p.m., EST, engadget joins in the speculation: real or fake?
Update V: Gizmodo joins in (no time stamp).
Update VI: By midnight, some severe fisking is taking place on the Macrumors forum and, inspired by Rathergate, they run the photo through Microsoft word and discover some, well, unMac-like things. Tim Germer and I declare, “fake.” Oh well, I’m sure the real deal will be much cooler.
Update VII: However, the pictured iHome already has some pre-orders.
