The New iTV: Steve's Gone Crazy

Something is very terribly wrong at Apple. Remember last month at WWDC, when Steve delegated much of his Stevenote duty to other executives? Well today at Apple's special It's Showtime presentation, he took the crazy much much further.

First off, he comes out to give a Stevenote wearing a button-up shirt?! Then, to add injury to insanity, he gives a sneak peek at a future product?!?! Something's definitely changed him. Cue Don LaFontaine: Steve, in a world where Apples reign, do you remake the iPod, or does the iPod remake you?

Oops, that ended up sounding more like Yakov Smirnoff, sorry Don.

Anywho, the iTV--a $299 AirPort Express with video-out--will not be ready until 2007, but that apparently didn't stop SuperSteve from dropping trou and releasing it as an unprecedented 2nd One More Thing.

Don't bother looking for pictures of it on Apple's site. There aren't any. Why? I dunno. Maybe because it's not ƒ#*!@ing done yet? Luckily, there are plenty of pictures from the Stevenote floating around the Internet. We like these angles the best:

As you can see, it looks like a flattened Mac mini. Also note the internal power supply, which is a very big deal for some reason. At any rate, we'll have to wait until 2007 to see if the iTV will triumphantly soar off store shelves, like an iPod, uh, eagle, or aimlessly hang out on them, like your friend Jeff who still listens to Kajagoogoo. Or a *cough* iPod Hi-Fi *cough*.

Honestly, we're more excited about Steve's next change of attire. Our prediction? Levis out, Spandex in.

You made a slight mistake... It is not the pictures of the iTV... It is an old Apple set top box from the 90's...

Appatently, you missed the humor in the "slight mistake."
