Heck, even by today’s standards it looks like the design of the computer has held up pretty well, even if its internals haven’t. That being said, designer Klaus Geiger came up with an idea that managed to repurpose old Power Mac G5 computers and turned them into furniture.

As you can see in the images above and below, the old Power Mac G5 computers have been repurposed as furniture, such as desks in which a wooden plank is placed on top of two Power Mac G5 computers. Interestingly enough Geiger has managed to capture Apple’s essence in his design, especially when you think about how Apple Stores are typically furnished using wood, glass, and metal.

This has also resulted in furnitures known as the standing desk in which users stand at their desks to work, as opposed to sitting in front of it.

Well if you’re interested in installing such a desk at your office place or even at home, you might be interested to learn that Swedish furniture maker IKEA has recently hopped on board the standing desk bandwagon with the Bekant.

foxconn suicideIf you weren’t quick on the draw and pre-ordered an iPhone 6 Plus when it was first announced, chances are you will be hard pressed to find the handset in stock at Apple’s retail stores or even third-party authorized retailers.

Facebook Creative Labs announced the launch of a new application today, called Rooms, which simply brings the ability to create and contribute to forums through a mobile device. It is quite different from other Facebook applications because while the rest rely upon your real identity, Rooms allows you to remain anonymous by using different names for different forums, or “Rooms” as they’re called in the app. The app is separate from Facebook so it is not linked to your profile on the social network.
