Not the new iPod

The Showtime Special Event
Live Coverage, 12th Sept 2006

To me the sneaked photo of new Apple iPod currently doing the rounds is an obvious fake. The Front Row interface on the touchscreen iPod is off centre, there are issues with the image metadata and the 24-inch iMac seems to actually overhang the physical space on the banner. Lets not even go into the fact that Apple normally cover banners announcing new products before a show...


Not the new iPod

While we might see a new iPod tomorrow, this isn't it. Move along folks, nothing to see here...

Update: Both TUAW and TechCrunch has a showtime rumour round-up. Yea haw!

Update: Thanks to those that pointed this out, but yes I did notice that the Front Row interface has the icon for DVD. But that's the least that's wrong with the image, after all it they could have rolled an IR or Bluetooth interface into the next generation iPod and it could be acting as a remote control for your iMac after all...

Update: Although one thing I did initially miss (and who can blame me?) was that the ceiling in this picture is the Moscone Centre, not the Buena Gardens-Theater where the special event is actually being held...
