    I note the "anchor's" comment: "It remains to be seen if the Wheel will catch on in the business world, where people use computers for actual work, and not just for dicking around."

    Apple's web site has nothing about this. But then, I think all computers are a clever hoax. Thoughts?

    uh, its not fake. its real.
    i went to the apple store today and i played with one and then decided to shell out the 2000 dollars. I am posting this using the macbook wheel now. its amazing. This post only took me 45 minutes to wheel out.

    It's not a hoax, its the onion. it's satire. everybody knows its fake, of course its fake. it's a satire. It never ceases to amaze me how obtuse people can be.
    I was hoping it would just make people laugh and that I wouldn't have to comment on how I know that it is fake.

    I love, "Everything is just a few hundred clicks away ..."

    And did you notice the text samples in the "intuitive sentence completer?
    "The aardvark admitted it was wrong."
    "The abortion went well."

    PDF (no, not an Adobe product, just pretty damn funny.)

    But then I'll buy anything as long as it's shiny and from Apple.

    Cowboyo, we were separated at birth. Out of that whole list, I remembered only those two quick lines and was just going to post them! icon_biggrin.gif

    I love the Onion.

    Capturing some truth about their customer base though...

    You're correct 1969er: the 18 years between us broke the record and still stands. icon_cool.gif
