Those who remember the early days of iCreate will likely remember a page at the back of the magazine called “What if Apple made…”. This simple page was our outlet for dreaming of products we wanted to see coming from Cupertino. Following the announcement of the iPad this month, we had a look through our back issues and discovered that an alarming number of our “dreams” eventually turned into reality in various guises. From the iPhone to the iPad, this little bit of nostalgia not only shows just how far we’ve come since 2003 but also proves that if you wish for something enough, you might just get it.
