Rig of the Day: iMac + T.P. dispenser

We've seen the Atech combination iPod dock/toilet paper dispenser before, but not mounted on an iMac. Good job, Meester Nik. You've mastered divergent thinking. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our group Flickr pool. We select one image to highlight each...

Rig of the Day: Tune your cycling

Don't you just get bored to tears while exercising? Well, you've got two options: First, you can do what I do...don't exercise. Or, you can follow OndraSoukup's lead and strap a Powerbook to your stationery bike. Just don't jostle that thing too hard, ok? "Powerbook & Bike - winter edition"...

Each week, we recap the Rigs of the Day that have graced our pages over the past seven days, and crown a "Rig of the Week." Here is the current entry. It's a rather short list this time around, folks. GeoffMyers showed the Blue and White G3 that he painted black this week, and Brendan Lynch posted a...

Rig of the Day: Floating monitor

Here's a clever set up. Flickr user Brendan Lynch shows off a white MacBook 2.0Ghz connected to a wall-mounted Mitsubishi E35 18.1'' Flat Panel. It looks real nice, Brendan. If you could go the extra step and somehow hide the MacBook, you'd have a super-clean look. "Clean rig" posted by Brendan...

Rig of the Day: The black Blue and White G3

While perusing our Flickr pool this morning, we decided, "It's time for a mod post." Behold the Blue and White G3 that's been painted black. It looks pretty good, Geoff. "Power Mac G3 Black Mod" posted by GeoffMyers. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our...

Rig of the Day: So that's what you do with old Apple boxes

I'll be picking the Rig of the Day whilst Dave is vacationing, and my first pick is 'Web surfin' makes me thirsty!' by flickr user dotephotos. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the Blueberry iMac, since it was my first Mac. The thing that makes the picture, for me, is the use of the...

Rig of the Day: You've got mail

Flickr user digitaldust saw this mailbox one day and snapped a quick shot (no, it's not his). Though we don't agree with the photo's title, we still think it's pretty cool. We can hear the conversations that this thing spawns now: "Honey, will you check the mail on the Mac?" "Which one...livingroom...

Rig of the Day: One more TV rig

Ok, just one more TV rig, we promise.* Flickr user beenester asks, "Is it overkill to use a 1.8GHz Powermac G5 as a TV computer?" We say, "Heck, no!" "Overkill?" posted by beenester. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our group Flickr pool. We select one...

Rig of the Day: The floating iMac

This is fantastic. Flickr user Zennifer has mounted her G5 iMac on a swiveling arm, allowing it to "float" above her desk. I applaud the uncluttered, minimalist beauty of this solution. "Floating iMac" posted by Zennifer. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply...

Rig of the Day: Hand me that screwdriver

How do you ensure that your kids will grow up to be Mac addicts? Start them early. This kid is well on his way (though his work methods still seem a bit crude). "Kid exploring BW G3" posted by OndraSoukup. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our group Flickr...

Rig of the Day: I like TV redux

One Mac mini attached to a massive TV deserves another mini attached to a massive TV. What we especially like about this shot is the iSight on top of the television. Very cool. "Spot the Mini" posted by ICULOOKN If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our group...

Rig of the Day: I like TV

Flickr user jasonsewell really likes TV. Check out the 50" (yes, fifty) Samsung DLP he's got mounted on his wall, and running FrontRow from a hidden Mac mini. That's fantastic. "Samsung DLP 50" TV" posted by jasonsewell. If you'd like to see your own rig featured here, simply upload photos into our...

Rig of the Day: Where did the computer go?

Today's rig is more of an "anti-rig." When Apple released the iMac G5, they used the tagline, "Where did the computer go?" Flickr user *nathan takes the idea to a whole new level with this "faceless" iMac. Where did the computer go indeed. "Faceless" posted by *nathan. If you'd like to see your own...
