While I think the style of iPod nano depicted in the image posted at Gear Live is not out of the realm of possibility, the odd shape cut into the background of the image has me curious.
It’s kind of like that scene in The Princess Bride where Wallace Shawn as Vizzini tries to decide which goblet has been poisoned. On the one hand, Apple would never take a product shot that had such a hacked up background. But, on the other hand, no one who was trying to fake an Apple image would have stepped back from this image and said, “I am finished–this is a masterpiece.”
It does look as though the background above the top of the alleged nano has a cutout that approximates the size of the current nano when added to the unit in the picture. For that matter, why isn’t the top of the picture cropped a little tighter? There’s nothing but space where a regular old iPod nano used to be. Bad Photoshopping? I’m betting “yes”…but who knows?
I guess we’ll just have to wait until Wednesday when Steve announces whatever he has planned to announce and we’ll find out who is right… and who is
Note:How could something so wrong be so right?
