If you didn't know, from Appleinsider.com: New service photos show unreleased Power Mac G5 (http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=474) (3 June). (Strange writing that as a rumour reference...)

Now Kasper says (http://forums.appleinsider.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=42716) that a Cease and Desist order was receieved the same day, while some* pictures have been removed. Way to confirm a rumour Apple!

*Yet, strangely, the picture on the Home Page remains in place:

Heh heh. AppleInsider wasn't stamped across the picture, last time I looked though! Haha, way to claim intellectual property guys!

*Edit; not any more:

Maybe Apple will nail Kasper to the wall :devil:

But the photos are weird, I wanna know what's under that massive heatsink...

Processors. No more than two though. It's just a better way to rid the machine of heat, a bigger area for it to dispurse will always be better. Requires fewer fans, so less noise, even though it was never a noisy machine to begin with.

Looks like it's been confirmed that the new PMs will look like that.

Gee.. that just makes me wonder what apple plans to do with all the extra space now gained by reducing the motherboard size. I mean, you could cram something in there, it does not have to be empty.

Edit: err.. yah I just RTFA... Apple might stick a Tb of storage in that space.

Congrats to pscates2.0 for his entry into the very exclusive "cease & desist" club.

Although, technically, it was the work of the 1.0 version..... ;)
