    That link is just a mirror incase apple.com goes down, haha.

    I did it in 10 minutes, I had big plans of faking a video of the Opera browser and all this, but my weekend got filled up…

    Hopefully people will get a good laugh, or at least believe it for a few seconds.

    Anyway, I’m off to beat The Godfather: Backhand!

    Yeah, like I said I did it in a couple minutes, I could have masked the domain and spent more time.

    I didn’t have time this week/weekend to do anything too elaborate.

    It’s all in good fun.

    me personaly i loved this joke. yes it would be great if apple did something like that, but i dont think it is that far away. i think its pretty possible. sometime last year apple and nintendo were talking about video games, people spectulated that there was going to be a small add-on to the iPod so that you can play NES games on them. maybe this is something that they were discussing. who knows

    Next time just contact me first suburbia, there are ways you could have made this seem even more realistic, like changing or removing the favicon, making the page url look like an apple.com url… etc
