Video surfaces of alleged Apple tablet

Furniture shopping for the 21st century

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

The French website Nowhereelse.fr has obtained what it suggests may be a video of the long-rumored Apple tablet:

Interestingly, the video shows the tablet - which is about the same size as countless rumors have suggested - being used not for reading a fancy sports mag or playing flicks, but instead shopping for furniture and kitchen cabinets.

Also of amusement - and possibly a bit of French whimsy - is an item on the desk behind the alleged tablet demo: a sheet of paper with images of Apple's ill-fated Newton MessagePad (model uncertain) and eMate 300. Très amusant!

Since our French is worse than rusty, we turned to the ever-amusing Google translator for help, which converted the conclusion of the site's Gallic musings to "this video is a beautiful but pure assembly or an authentic first glimpse of the famous tablet, I WANT THE SHELF!"

Don't we all, mon ami, don't we all. ®
