About That Next iPhone Dock Adapter…

I thought it was moderately credible:

It’s worth noting that this wouldn’t be the first time a new product has leaked on Apple’s own website. In 2003, specs were posted to the Power Mac page that, in Steve Jobs’ own words, “looked pretty remarkable“. They were pulled shortly after, but were confirmed to be legitimate at WWDC that year.

However, TUAW reports that it was a hoax. The guy who made it did a pretty good job, but there were two big problems with it. The first was something I spotted:

The other big question I have is why Apple would produce dock adapters in two different colours. It seems like an unnecessary complication.

The second mistake the creator made is that he spelled “colour” the correct way, instead of the Americanized way. Good detective work by TUAW.
