He also states that "I know for a fact that only three of them exist outside of the retail stores' circulation, and this is one of them." According to the seller the stair originally cost ...

If you're like me (and heavens help you if you are), you long to visit the huge Apple Store on 5th Avenue in New York City, but that pesky "geography" keeps getting in the way. I know it's not the same, but Apple has offered a small consolation in these great Quicktime VR tours. You can check out si...

Ok, so maybe it's just a joke, but it's still funny. Macenstein has written an amusing parody post, stating that the NYC cube (which is made of the same material as the iPod's screen) will don a protective case designed by Incase, after receiving a 30-foot scratch over the weekend. Nice one, Macenst...
