iToilet Mod

Quote:
In what die-hard Macbashers would claim is the first genuinely constructive use of Apple hardware in year, French bloggers at www.w3sh.com have posted an innovative mod they call the iToilet. Taking full advantage of the Mac Mini's compact dimensions and white exterior, they modded the diminutive OSX box into a toilet paper dispenser.

ajack has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
As discussed in IRC - I bet that mobo was placed so carefully in that bin, just long enough to get a photo

This sounds like the G5-PC mod on www.overclockers.com. The one where the guy got SO much hate mail he went public and said the whole thing was a joke to drive his mac-head friend nuts.

Exactly what I was thinking! Now if they really wanted to prove they hated macs, they would simply break the motherboard in half, but I don't see two pieces in the bin, so I think they were very cautious.

Got a link to that? Sounds interesting!

And yeah, this is pretty funny! (he says typing on his Mac Mini!)

well the french probibly would not want to dammage it despite how much they hate it becaue they would not throw money away. the silicon is still worh something. even if it is made my mac. this reminds me of the itrash. what i find funny is that a mac wich is basicly a half ass computer is only able to work as a half ass tiolet paper despencer seeing that it does not have much capasity

Also this reminds me of the true iToliet (I think it was called that) Where thery was a render using iMac elements (circa '98 iMac) to make a iToliet, pretty funny concept. That G5 mod was just stupid, lmao, replace dual processor G5 beast with a crappy XP (well compared to the G5s, it is crap). But it is a beautiful case, and huge!

Could've just got the case off ebay, rather than buying an entire new system - unless it was already broken - already?

it is, its still got the back plate of the mac mini on it. He needs the bottom bit to clip all the case back. So it has been placed in there.

That's fantastic - just the statement that we've all been waiting for from the 'net recently. Apple have risen far too far above their station recently.
