Some sad lonely Mac fanboy, who happens to be a superb 3D modeler, has began the now-annual "design a mockup of the next iPod" competition. Only thing is, no prize, and no glory. This one is a little bit too square for my taste, although the bigger screen is definitely a plus. Here is a quick spec rundown of this fake: Bluetooth, integrated camera, microphone, user-replaceable battery, voice-to-text translation, 802.11g Wi-Fi, and a variety of screen display options. Keep dreaming, folks.
