That name is _not_ my creation, I was told by someone else on this list
(Ethan, I think) that that's what it is being called. Don't blame me for
what someone else has decided to call it, I'm just trying to follow some
convention so that people know what is being talked about.

Well, it's not you, and it's not Ethan either, it's Noah John. In any case, could you please call this computer by its name ?

I can understand that saying "the new iBook" doesn't help very much especially when a new one comes along. The Apple Tech Info Library uses "iBook Dual-USB (2001)" as the full name. And saying "icebook" doesn't help much, it's just like when somebody says they have a graphite g4, a indigo imac or a tangerine ibook: it's useless (at least after a second version with the same look pops up).
