‘The first 30 years were just the beginning.  Welcome to 2007.’

Apple has posted a new welcome image on their website featuring a backlit top-half of the famous Apple logo with the text, “The first 30 years were just the beginning. Welcome to 2007.” The dawn of a new Apple? Apple takes the stage?

Is this simply a “Happy New Year” message or a teaser of things to come in 2007 or both? And why do we keep expecting to hear Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra when looking at the image?


  1. It’s funny that MDN mentions that soundtrack, because I have thought that most everything Apple in the last few years looked like it was straight out of “2001”. Consider that the little one man spaceships were called “pods”, and that the set decor was mostly gleeming white with black and chrome, like today’s iPods and iMacs. The Cube, color-wise, is from the same pallet as the moonsuits. When I saw the Apple site just now, I thought am I the only one who sees this?
