    Blackbox?
    I was in the Apple Store and I went on iChat and Bonjour opened with all the iChats in the store and there was a computer named "Blackbox". I IMed it and it quickly logged off. Then I opened iTunes and there was a Shared folder called Blackbox music playlist. Anybody know what the "blackbox" is and could it be a new Black Powermac Intel?

    Well... Would they have anything other than an Apple at the Apple Store?

    Specs:

    Could be the main logging server for that apple store's macs, hence 'Blackbox'.

    Yeah, I don't think that Apple would name their comp like that and put it online in a store. That's a bit insane.
    It must be some kind of logging box, like in an airplane.

    They never tell stores what the next product is before it comes out, let alone have one set up.

    yeah, they tell employees when packages with new stuff comes, "do not open until the release date". No I doubt apple is so stupid as to give the name of the next powermac out. If Apple catches employees who spill the beans, they could get fired.
