Apple 'Home Appliance'?

Appleinsider posts a vague rumor that Apple may be riding on the success of the iPod and looking to expand into "the home-appliance market".

According to their sources, the new device "is said to exist as its own entity and product, rather than an extension of the Macintosh platform."

Of course, details are absent. Ever since Apple's release of the iPod, there has been speculation on more "digital lifestyle devices". Apple has admitted to working on other projects (Special Projects Group?), but the details are left to speculation at this point.
