I've got it� It's a time machine.

Yes, for our special Apple Hype Watch� segment, we have decoded Apple's clues to bring you Monday's mystery product a full two days early! A time machine is big, time is related to counting (no, not the awful puns in the Count of Monte Christo trailer), it's beyond the rumor sites, it deals with "the future," that would definitely be where PCs have never gone, and I would definitely lust after it. As an added bonus, Days 5 and 6 of Apple Hype Watch� obviously are making reference to Star Trek, and we all know that in space, you encounter a funky temporal anomaly nearly every week! �or maybe that's just on Voyager.

You know, now that I brought up the Star Trek connection, I relaise it could also be a transporter. A transporter, or a Klingon Battle Cruiser. Yep, gotta be one of those three for sure. You heard it here first.
