I have to say that this looks a lot like what I, personally, was hoping for. For me, I think something that just plain looks like the QT 5 interface would be pretty nice. Maybe with a simple pen based interface just for selecting files. A portable quicktime, basically, but with playlist fuctionality to integrate it more easily with iTunes.

Cheers
Scott

This looks a lot like a concepting image I've seen before - a few variations of which look better than this one.

Okay - the image is definitely a fake. You do the math -
1) off-center dock.
2) multiple HDs on desktop
3) If it's a touch screen, why the big-ass (and disproportionate) touchpad?
4) For the anal among us - the kerning on the Headline Type is inconsistent with Apple's - amatuer

There's that for starters. If I can dig out one of the older images I have onhand (I saved a few of these a while back - like I said, most looked better than this) I'll post 'em somewhere.

Someone's just dummied this up in the style of the new homepage promos from Apple to trick ya, Bacchus... but you've likely figured that out by now, yes?
