After all the attention this blog has been getting... Feast your eyes on this gif to the left.

Admittedly the pic did have some mistakes, although not precisely the ones people were pointing out.

The font was wrong, fair enough. I should have used Myriad, but since I use a PC, all I had was Edwardian Script, unless i payed $20 or so. Which is a big no-no for a font...

The song is *not* a mistake. The Arctic Monkeys do have an album called "I bet you Look Good on the Dancefloor" with the song "A Certain Romance" in it, and it *also* appears in "Whatever People say I am, That's what I'm not." I actually researched a bit before 'chopping, not getting caught in the most basic of mistakes is like Step 1 for hoaxing... ;)

Something I admit I left out is that "A Certain Romance" is song #1 of the album, not "6 of 15," although the seconds left/remaining bar is correct.

And I also got caught with the EXIF tags on engadget.com, who saw that the image came from being edited in Photoshop 7 (link below).

"Not even a very good Photoshop job. I coulda done better and I'm an engineer not a designer. " -panique
Well I just happen to be a really bored self-taught Photoshop user, not a designer.
And, personally, it's quite a good Photoshop job.

"Reported as inaccurate. These images have been floated for a while. They were mock-up done by someone who was wondering what the video iPod would look like.
We now know what it looks like. No digg." -galfridus73

Exactly my purpose. To have an image of what the
new iPod might look like, basing myself on Apple's
new patents on touch-screen technology.
And, if I may say so myself, it looks bloody cool.

"PSP iPod" -Zeusandhera
I love how my pictures have spawned more people to do these
things. I had a laugh with this one :D

"$599" -blurtheimage
Suddenly everyone had new info on the iPod. Even a price tag!

Another person trying to pass this for real.
Nice try, but a bit late ;)

"This have been around much longer then the new ipod video leak. Have some brains before you digg." -simplyhiker
Have they? Well, unless I'm mistaken,
*these* pictures were made on my
Photoshop 7.0 after the news leaks...
Have some brains before you try saying something clever.

Ok, I lost imageshack again.
