Apple Normally, this isn't something you'd find on the front page of OSNews, but the amount of craftsmanship and attention to detail going into this project is just mind blowing. In fact, it's so mind blowing that many Apple rumour websites posted this as a possible shot of an upcoming Apple netbook. Well, yeah, if Apple started making laptops out of wood...

It's time we finally get an Apple news website of decent quality, with good, critical editors who can properly discern fact from fiction.

How was that hypocritical?

All you're doing by referencing the article title is agreeing with the very same point that you cited as being hypocritical.

Because he did the opposite of what he said he wanted?

You do realise the article title is in jest, right?

I figured that was pretty drop dead obvious.

Thom, one lesson about computer geeks... we typically miss the obvious, and apparently some of us don't have a sense of humor either. ;) I like the title, I laughed and it did get my attention for the sheer craziness of that idea. Knowing Apple they'd probably even try it if they thought they could make it work.

Seems like you all didn't get the title. Have you even read the article?

The title says: The NETBOOK, that was presented on a photo and spread as a RUMOUR that this might gonna be built by Apple, was just a WOODEN model by some crazy artist, and NOT a leaked Apple photo or something.

Nobody said that Apple will build a wooden netbook.
