So Apple introduced the new form factor of the new iMac. They describe it as futuristic, but I think they've confused the future with a 1999 dot-com:

I don't get it. Apple's designs have been clunky before, but they're usually appropriately derivative -- "It's shaped like a TV"! "It recalls a desk lamp!". But "It looks like a computer" doesn't really do much for me, especially given the strong correlation between "all-in-one computer with flat display on stand" and "overpriced, underpowered crap" (see also "Acer").

I don't understand at all how that could stand up when a cat rubs up against it hard. The big one is 20" wide and the stand can't be more than 6".
