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.
