During the deluge of news coming out of Apple today I paused for a second and thought, 'Hmm, the new iMac kind of looks like a big old iPhone.' Luckily I was not the only one to notice this. The good folks at Signal v.s Noise (the blog from 37signals, the makers of Basecamp amongst other things) also noticed. They point out that the previous incarnation of the iMac took its design cues from the iPod. Consumer electronics shaping the design of a consumer computer, makes sense to me.
Does this mean that those fabled touch screen iPods will look like iPhones? Wouldn't surprise me a bit.
I would like to know what you think of the iMac's new look. Sound off in the comments.
