A widescreen iPod Video! With scroll wheel! With a beautiful bright screen? Or is it just a Photoshopped all to hell iPod Photo? You decide. [Thanks, Jamie!]
UPDATE - Read on for an excellent exchange with Ben.
Ok. Read this email exchange. Ben, who was a great sport, caught me in an asshole mood this morning on this ridiculous-looking rendering job. Thanks, Ben, for not suing.

calm down, ben. let's think this through. Apple could make something that ugly. Maybe it isn't fake? Maybe there's something we don't know. Call Apple and get back to me.

It's hard to be calm when you are being so irrational and showing such poor journalistic judgment.
The wheel is pixelated, the 3d background is clearly rendered, and for god sakes, the title of the picture should be your first clue.

hmmm. maybe you're right. Let's work together on this to figure out what's going on. Maybe someone might have faked a photo, but why would they do that? It's almost as if they're out to get us!

Mac nerds do this stuff all the time. They prepare idols for Steve Jobs.
I'm just going to head over to Thinksecret to see what you guys are going to post next, thanks.
