Having sat through quite a few /Branding-related meetings (which included quite a few on product packaging six or so years back), I laughed myself silly watching this video (via Gruber).

It's so brilliant, it ought to be used as training material - and do send it round to whoever deals with product packaging in your organization (here's a WMV file, 17.4MB, 480x360@29fps). Maybe they'll get it.

Oh, and I've been reading and puttering about for the last few days. Normal service (if there ever was such a thing) should be resumed in a couple more.

In the meantime, if you're still in the mood for rumors, check out these concept designs of what Steve could conceivably announce tomorrow.
