Apple Plasmas too Good to be True

Apple Plasmas?I just received this obvious Photoshop-job of “Apple plasmas” being loaded into a store window. While fun to look at, I’m increasingly of the opinion that the whole thing could be a massive misinformation campaign by Cupertino to get us off the scent.
The PowerPage has been receiving suspicious IMs from people claiming to have all kinds of facts on the new plasma Macs but they simply don’t add up. Part numbers of the alleged TVs don’t match what other Mac Web sites have been told, so there’s a good chance that Steve, Phil and Avie are simply testing the loyalty of their staff by giving out false info and looking for it on the Web. They simply match the specs (in this case the PNs) to the leak and BAM, they’re fired. It’s a crappy way to down-size but it may be happening.
You have to take all this pre-Expo reporting with a grain of salt. Remember that no one except Steve himself and a handful of engineers, PMs and execs know the exact details of the products being announced today. Cupertino is pretty stealthy leading up to Expo and it wouldn’t surprise me if the whole plasma thing turned out to be a smoke-screen. We’ll see in 60 minutes.
