they seem especially fake because they come from a very unreliable source known for fakes and trolls

***update***

It looks more blocky than the more circular menus and "hugable" icons we now have.

What?

MacRumors has been quite reliable. I think you must be mistaking them for MacOSRumors. MOSR is the site that has a reputation for posting entirely fictional articles, not MacRumors. They are not related.

Apparently your shift keys don't work either...

If MacRumors has them posted I don't doubt they are real. Even if the source is someone else, they wouldn't post them if they didn't think they were real. And Apple is probably finishing up the last few internal builds before WWDC. It's possible (however unlikely) someone got a hold of them or an Apple employee leaked them.

Come waste your time with me

Whether they're fake or not, those screenshots look great! I especially like the new Dashboard Expos shot.... Whoa is that cool!

BTW since when can you state a reason why you make an edit?

I thought those dashboard shots were from Konfabulator's new 'konfabspose' feature. Whether or not the shots are fake, they are bloody boring. If you have access it the developers build at least show something cool.

Someone on the macrumors board pointed out that in the System Prefs search, nothing comes up for the new spoken interface thingy that'll be in Tiger.

I just hope that Brad provides oodles of screenshots of Tiger like he did with Panther. Eh, Brad. You gonna???

I'm going back and forth on the validity of these pics. However, Think Secret has gotten confirmation that that pics are either legit or based on legit info. Their story also has some good info on why Tiger seems so underwhelming.

The best news is that AppleNova got a plug in the article.



I would like to take this time to welcome any Think Secret readers to our corner of teh intraweb.

I was wondering about the number of people on the boards. I figured it was a bug. So, welcome indeed.

And I was wrong about the Spoken User Interface in the System Prefs search window. About half way down the list is an option for Level of Spoken Detail which is an option for the SUI not found in Panther. So maybe these are real.

Which means that widget thing will be the same kick in the nuts the Watson developers got when the new Sherlock was released.

We've got a lot of guests browsing the forums now...anyone care to register and chime in on whether they think the shots are real or not?

I think it would be cool to get a consensus from someone other than the AppleNova regulars.

Either way, glad to have everyone here.

Come waste your time with me

Well, Mac Rumors is reporting that Apple Legal has asked them to remove the images. I guess we can now all assume that they are legit.



Did anyone save some copies of them?

Well, we've seen C&D orders from Apple legal in the past that didn't lead to that actual product. Most recently the G5 service manual pictures that turned out to be fakes. Apple was all over those, but the actual Rev. B G5s turned out nothing like the pictures that showed up.

I think they are real, either that or someone has a lot of time on their hands to fake something like that. Anyone know if the build number would be genuine?


And I have the shots downloaded if anyone wants to host them so we can keep the party going.

Arlo Rose, co-creator of Konfabulator, does not seem very happy about Dashboard. It also seems like he believes it.

Anyone else think Apple turned a page with Sherlock 3? Someone comes up with a great idea and if we can't buy it, steal it.

Look at Konfabulator and say to me with a straight face that its a truly original idea. It isn't. I use Watson 10x more than I use Sherlock 3. Konfabulator should be the same. I won't use either frequently as they introduce clutter on the desktop.

Is Konfabulator anything like OpenDoc?

No. Konfabulator is an app that lets you run JavaScript-powered "widgets". Most of the ones I've seen are just little indicators like a calendar, clock, weather forecast, etc.

From http://www.konfabulator.com:
Quote:
Konfabulator is a JavaScript runtime engine for Mac OS X that lets you run little files called Widgets that can do pretty much whatever you want them to. Widgets can be alarm clocks, calculators, can tell you your AirPort signal strength, will fetch the latest stock quotes for your preferred symbols, and even give your current local weather.
Not too terribly useful... just a lot of eye candy. I've yet to see the value in it worth paying for. Hopefully Apple can offer something more.

Konfabulator is basically the old Desk Accessories from waaaaaaaaay back when, reborn with color. I can't say I've ever seen much utility to it either.

What *really* is the difference between a Konfab widget and a little app, after all? It's a neat little API, and a nice exercise in dynamic code plugins, but that's really all it is as far as I can tell. To Classic Mac developers, hell yes that's cool and new. To NeXT/Cocoa developers, it's very very old news.

My other brain is hung like a horse too.

The screenshots are certifiable fakes, even though the features they describe may not be. GNAA is an organization specializing in spoofs of various kinds, and aside from that they're very obviously not from Apple. The Konfabulator shots might be real, but that's all they are: Konfabulator widgets. This will all be beared out soon enough obviously.

Sucks that Konfab may have the same fate as Watson. Though it could just make for konfab getting even better...
