Excellent Photoshop! But where's the reflection on the top cord? This looks really real, and tbh I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't fake...but proof is needed

Alright, 3 pictures at such great quality would be nigh on impossible to fake. This is definitely real.

The first one is faked but the rest look very convincing.


There is no reflection for that part of the cord.

i'm not so sure it's faked...if it was, that would be the top half of the zune anyways, where there already is a screen and glass so that part of the glass would probably remain unchanged in any process of photoshopping since it's just extra work for no benefit...just MHO...

Still, this would be a VERY drool-worthy device and might make me pull out my hidden "Future DAP" stash.

Cruleworld, what reflection? I see the reflection with the other cable. You have to think of the light source angle at times.

ok, simple lesson in reflections people.
Looking at the reflection of the screen will bounce forward at the exact opposite angle that you are looking at it with. so if your looking at it from a 50 degree angle it's gonna be bouncing away from the object at 50 degrees.

In this specific example, you can't tell whether the second cord is going up or if it's going outward or both and to what degree. It is completely possible that the cord is in a position where the 1's cord's shadow and the second cord's cshadow overlap (which would account for the fuzziness above the
1st cords shadow) Just like when 2 shadows overlap, the farther object will project a lighter shadow and a more fuzzy one. Art school ;-)

i think that if this was a photoshop, one would have copied the screen and placed it over the bottom of the device to "cover" the Zune controls and then make sure it blended and lined up correctly to look like a single piece. This would mean that the top half of the device should essentially remain unchanged. Thus, the point with the "missing shadow" would be original, not part of the photoshop. If this is a real device, the missing shadow can be explained by the possibility that the one half of the cord is laying somewhat over the other half thus making it seem as though it is not reflecting in the glass. My biggest evidence that this is a fake is the dust on the glass in picture 2 is only present in the top half of the device where the original screen would be and not the bottom portion where the photoshop would be. But it could just be coincidence...
