I'll be picking the Rig of the Day whilst Dave is vacationing, and my first pick is 'Web surfin' makes me thirsty!' by flickr user dotephotos. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the Blueberry iMac, since it was my first Mac. The thing that makes the picture, for me, is the use of the Ap...

Flickr user digitaldust saw this mailbox one day and snapped a quick shot (no, it's not his). Though we don't agree with the photo's title, we still think it's pretty cool. We can hear the conversations that this thing spawns now: "Honey, will you check the mail on the Mac?" "Which one...livingroom...

Each week, we recap the Rigs of the Day that have graced our pages over the past seven days, and crown a "Rig of the Week." Here is the current entry. Reader *nathan asks, "Where did the computer go?" Let's hope he got that thing back together. jasonsewell wow'd us with the 50" TV connected to his M...

Ok, just one more TV rig, we promise.* Flickr user beenester asks, "Is it overkill to use a 1.8GHz Powermac G5 as a TV computer?" We say, "Heck, no!" "Overkill?" posted by beenester. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our group Flickr pool. We select one ima...

This is fantastic. Flickr user Zennifer has mounted her G5 iMac on a swiveling arm, allowing it to "float" above her desk. I applaud the uncluttered, minimalist beauty of this solution. "Floating iMac" posted by Zennifer. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply uploa...

How do you ensure that your kids will grow up to be Mac addicts? Start them early. This kid is well on his way (though his work methods still seem a bit crude).

One Mac mini attached to a massive TV deserves another mini attached to a massive TV. What we especially like about this shot is the iSight on top of the television. Very cool.

Flickr user jasonsewell really likes TV. Check out the 50" (yes, fifty) Samsung DLP he's got mounted on his wall, and running FrontRow from a hidden Mac mini. That's fantastic. "Samsung DLP 50" TV" posted by jasonsewell. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our...

Today's rig is more of an "anti-rig." When Apple released the iMac G5, they used the tagline, "Where did the computer go?" Flickr user *nathan takes the idea to a whole new level with this "faceless" iMac. Where did the computer go indeed. "Faceless" posted by *nathan. If you'd like to see your own...

Each week we recap the Rigs of the Day that have graced our pages over the past seven days, and crown a "Rig of the Week." Here is the current entry. cdevroe sent in these very nice shots of his beautiful new black Macbook (aren't you glad I didn't say "BlackBook?"). We love that brand-new-Mac-good...

Some guys (or girls) have all the luck. While it's true that I own many Macs, the vast majority of them (ok, all but two) weren't manufactured in this decade...and most of those don't really work. So you can understand why I'm jealous envious of prunejuice's (great name) snapshot featuring a Powerb...

"...If I could save time in a bottle..." Today's shot features a 15" MacBook Pro next to its older brother, a 15" Powerbook G4. They're really quite similar at first glance. Looks can be deceiving. So long, Powerbook, and thanks for all the fish. "The first of a new generation, and the last of the ...

Picking a rig to highlight this afternoon was pretty easy. Flickr user cdevroe has posted some nice shots of his brand new, not-even-24-hours-old MacBook. In black, no less. We're jealous. "Macbook" by posted by cdevroe. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our...

Yes, that Thomas Dolby. Flickr user randomduck snapped a shot of his on-stage rig which consisted of contemporary and (modded) vintage equipment, all of which is controlled by a dual-processor Power Mac G5. For a more detailed run down of what's pictured, check out Thomas' blog. "Thomas Dolby's on-...

Now here's a setup that Mr. Ive himself would envy. The desk looks like a machined airplane wing, and the Macbook Pro (we assume) is connected to the wall-mounted Apple display (here's another shot). A wireless keyboard and mouse keep the whole thing clean, clean, clean. We love it. "apple wi...

After all the great vintage rigs we featured in April, we thought it would be nice to post a clean and contemporary shot to start off May. Spring is all about new beginnings, right? Flickr user Owall posts a nice shot of a Mac mini and thin display (is that mounted on the wall?) on his new desk. &q...

We like this one a lot. Flickr user rudolf_mittelmann has posted a nice shot of his PowerBook Duo 280c running a custom-built HyperCard stack that controls the train you see zipping past. Classic Macs running classic software to complete atypical tasks make us happy. "PowerBook Duo 280c" ...

Now here's something you don't see every day. One computer used as a stand for another. Flickr user epatel sent us this shot of a Mac Plus and an external, 20 MB SCSI disk sitting comfortably on top of an Apple // Plus . At least the Apple is still in use. While we're on the topic, is that Lemming...

Today's Rig shot features three vintage PowerBooks: A PowerBook Duo 2300c, a PowerBook G3 (bronze keyboard) and a PowerBook 3400c, all up and running. I've got a 3400c myself that I intend to turn into a picture frame some day (because I have so much free time). I was once given a Powerbook 150 for...

Are Cubes "vintage" yet? We're not sure, but we do like them. Flickr user techcast-oni posts a shot of his well-maintained Cube and 15" Apple Cinema Display. I've got to get one of those eventually. Untitled posted by techcast-oni. For the month of April, the theme for our Rig of the...
