I actually doubt it was made by Apple. While I haven't met Bruce
personally but do know him, I think his comments may have either been
misreported by Wired (very common) or he is mistaken in believing the
computer was made by Apple.

The one I've got as well as the other one on Tom's pages were modified by
a third party company.

Also, it kind of sucks that it has no motherboard. That sort of limits
it's cool factor. The one I've got is complete, and works.
