Apple Concepts Posted by Scott 06/16/08 With all the recent hype about Apple’s forthcoming products, I thought I’d post some pre-Ive-era throwbacks. These were posted as "The Origins of the iPhone" at Fudder.de.

I wonder if it’s just artifacts from an old photo or some CIA type redaction… 6 Anonymous says: June 17, 2008 at 11:23 am Wow…1337 h4x0r headset and matching watch for the win haha… 7 joshua says: June 17, 2008 at 2:01 pm This stuff is great.

Computers could be part of the interior. that would be sweet:) 9 jam says: March 23, 2010 at 8:44 am drrrrrrrrrrrrrr modular pastel mac II nano system win! 10 Scotty H. says: March 27, 2010 at 9:47 pm errrrrrrrrrrrrr which way did he go? 11 TJ [sixlive] says: April 9, 2010 at 5:48 am gahhhhhhhh The green grid totally makes it that much better… 12 themark says: May 25, 2010 at 10:41 pm I worked at frogdesign for 7 years, and there was a huge file cabinet filled with slides of models just like these. Literally hundreds of visionary ideas that were impossible to implement at the time. frog was paid a monthly retainer just to come up with cool stuff until Steve got booted. Whenever we thought we had a revolutionary idea, Hartmut would go and dig in that cabinet and pull out something very similar done 5-6 years earlier. Apple’s culture of design excellence was nurtured there.
