In what is no doubt a coup for the 2005 writing staff of Saturday Night Live, Lance Ulanoff, editor-in-chief of PCMag.com, pointed out that a nearly 4 year-old episode of the famed comedy show did a fairly good job of predicting the new iPod shuffle.
The pretty good Steve Jobs impersonator [I believe that's Fred Armisen -DM]describes over and over how "thrilled" he was about the new iPod Micro. Holding it in his fingertips, the Micro appears to be not much bigger than a human finger--recall that the new 4G shuffle is about two inches long.
The sketch features this golden exchange:
Tina Fey: "But we can barely see it." Fake Steve: "Exactly, and that's exciting."
We here at MacUser are now expecting the new MacBook Wheel sometime in 2013.
