It is some sort of widget that they programmed themselves.

I have always wondered that myself. Did you go to the apple store just to get a screen shot of it?

Pretty sure trpnmonkey is right. Apple Stores have the program that they put on the floor models.

That sounds like a M$ trick. We want it. Apple should give it to us. I always wonder about it too when I'm in the Apple Store but never asked them.

nvm i found everything out.

docktop is pretty much the same apple uses but you can't get the rounded square bezel look like apple, but i wonder if apple really uses this exact program. i'll have to check next time i go in.

thank you very much munich for those helpful links!
