Nah...it's gotta begin with the letter "p" like iPhone, iPod, iPad.

I vote for iPush.

iGlide?

I'm not an apple fan myself and can imagine that they would be horrible shiny plastic things that would cost 3 times the price of an equivalent product from another manufacturer...

Running gear would be something industry standard (e.g. SureGrip plates) but slightly different to prevent people replacing them without Apple intervention...

Everything would be held together with pentolobular screws*. You'd have to take them in to an apple store to get the action adjusted, or the warrantee would be voided. Cost: a very reasonable $100 per adjustment!

They would look slick and stylish, but would allow no customisation at all. You could never put another plate with their boot, or vice versa, they'd be too different to be compatible.

You could express your individuality by selecting from Apple's wide range of designer lace colours.

Their peformance would be average - for twice the cost of generic equivalents.

Everytime you fell over you'd probably smash something vital on them.

But that's all ok, because as long as you are part of "The Apple Club" of skaters, your mission is complete! That's all that matters right?

iSeds. Each .0 would add one wheel til full functionallity at 8.0, but would not be firmware upgradeable.
Additionally, they will be able to balance your checkbook, cook supper, but will be incompatible with Wheels XP.

I had thought that firmware and software meant the wheel duro

Here`s what the Apple plate and wheels would look like:

By the way, what happened to Immortal?
