All the complaints about Apple’s recent failure to produce innovative design has overlooked its cylindrical Mac Pro type Apple tower of power due out this fall.
This black volcano of computing centers around fan and air shaft in the middle.
With the shell removed it looks a little bit like R2-D2.
But the black tower also suggests that cylindrical black UFO design of the company’s planned new headquarters by lord Norman Foster. That is not just my impression. Writing from
Mac conference recently Dan Ackerman at Cnet noted “The first view we saw was from the top, where the circular design reminded me of Apple’s planned new UFO-like headquarters.”
Of course the Mac Pro also reminds me of a small black metal wastebasket I had in my office for years. [ mac pro ]
