Dock Sticker

Greeting all, first post for me.

A few years ago, I saw a sticker on the bottom of the rear window of a car that simply looked like the dock in OSX. I have been looking for one ever since, and have pretty much given up on it, but decided to post here to see if anybody knows where I can get my hands on one.

BTW, this is my first Mac, a PowerBook 15". I have had it for 13 months now, and have had all of one system freeze in all that time. I really push thing to its limits all the time using Adobe CS, and typically have six or seven programs running all the time.

I'm thrilled with my Mac, and have since then put Linux on all my PC's just so I don't have to stare at that Start button anymore.

Thanks again.

Two prime sources for Apple stuff - Redlight Runner and Missing Bite - both come up dry. Maybe it was not done by Apple.

I read about that in Cult of Mac. It was a custom-designed sticker made by a guy who worked with graphic design. I have no clue what his name was or how (if you could possibly) contact him.

You could create your own (it would be even cooler if it were your dock, not just the generic Apple dock).

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

Actually, I meant that it'd be a cooler showing of your love for the Mac if it were your dock, not just some generic Apple one.

No... I got what you were saying, I was just trying to clarify.

If someone made these, would you buy them? I'd probably blow $12 on a decent one. The problem would be doing it for profit, I bet Stevie Jobs wouldn't be real happy about somebody turning a profit on the Dock.

Anybody work at a shop that could make them?
