Touchscreen hybrid OS X/iOS iMac tipped for imminent debut?

Talk of a touchscreen iMac refuses to die, and with Steve Jobs constantly praising our fingers as the ideal way to interact with tablets, smartphones and other portable gadgets, it hardly seems surprising that there are persistent rumors that Apple will roll that sort of functionality further up their food chain.  LOOPRumors claims to have heard that a special Apple event is on the cards, where the company will launch a new hybrid iMac with both regular OS X and iOS touch capabilities.

The Daily Slash: June 22nd 2010

Did it feel like Wednesday to anyone else? We had to check our calendar's a few times today, just to make sure it really was Tuesday. You'll have to forgive us -- we don't get out much, as you can probably imagine. In any event, welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash, Tuesday-style. Tonight, in the Best of R3 Media, we've got some more Cease and Desist letters being handed out, Apple's sold a ton of iPads, and the iPhone 4's showing up at Walmart.

When the PC is a Toaster

It hasn’t been that long since Apple announced a computer that was more appliance than traditional PC and we’re still feeling the shocks. It was a “closed” system and the digerati panned it. Some said it would hurt future generations who would lack the tools to tinker and program. Others decried a new metaphor for dealing with information as too limiting and toy-like.
