Apple removes monitors from front page of storeI've been saying for a while that Apple is due to announce new displays any day now. Apple's current Cinema Displays were released at WWDC in June 2004 and three and a half years is an eternity in consumer electronics.

Some time last night Apple re-shuffled the layout of the front page of their online store and removed all mentions of the Cinema Display. They didn't remove the displays entirely though. You can still find them by clicking on Accessories in the left navi, then on Displays. But it's a definite snub.

Non-conspiracists will maintain that Apple did it to make room for the Christmas items that they're featuring, but I'm not buying.

Apple's new Cinema Displays will most likely feature LED backlighting, an HDMI port, a built-in iSight camera and a new industrial design. If they only come with a glossy finish, look for a boycott and protest–at least from me. New Cinema Displays will most likely get unveiled at Macworld Expo on 15 January 2008.  (Thanks Ciro)

    In addition to all those awesome features, every dollar spent at Apple is like a dagger to the heart of Micro$ux and that's a fact!

  • Did Apple pay for the ad space you just gave them?

    Does your editor know you are placing Apple ads in your blog?

      • Ugh, what a monstrosity!!

        Dell would have to pay me a fortune to give that monstrosity any publicity. I'm going to print that out and bring it to my next MUG meeting so we can all relentlessly poke fun at the poor people who have to use something so ugly! Then we will all pull out our iPhones and call each other! We have competitions to see who can dial the fastest. I haven't won yet but I'm coming close and that's a fact!

    • Apple doesn't have to pay for advertising

      See, you aren't a Mac user like I am so you simply don't understand the wonderful feelings you get just from using a Mac product. When I'm in front of my Mac or using my iPhone, I feel like an angel is gently caressing my hair, it is a sensation that simply can't be explained to someone who isn't a fan of Apple products but is something that we feel compelled to share with people who haven't seen the light yet. Apple doesn't pay us to talk about Apple, we do it as a favor to you, so you can enjoy the same wonderful feeling we get from using superior products. That's a fact!

      Here, [url=http://talkback.zdnet.com/5208-10532-0.html?forumID=1&threadID=42262&messageID=779412] this guy knows what I'm talking about. [/url] Listen to him for he is wise and that's a fact!

  • Agree. This CES will bring lots of great products

    LED backlight, very high color gamut, DisplayPort interfaces is the next turn of the crank. I'm waiting to upgrade my Dell 24" that has served me well but lacking in the above.

    I agree Apple will set the new high bar for display. Too bad I'm still stuck with that stink'n Windows XP machine but it's fast.

    Aside from te above, I would like to see better video scaling processors, and a much higher contrast ratio - all for $1,000 - please.
