Macwhispers has posted four rumor tidbits from Apple suppliers. There's the five foot cable with a USB and Firewire connectors on one end, and wire leads on the other. And the "larger, longer, and narrower" PowerMac motherboards.

Here are the real gems, though:
- Chi Mei Optoelectronics (the name in optoelectronics...) is working on a "very large, very high resolution" LCD for Apple. Sheesh! Isn't the cinema display big enough?
- The previously reported 5 x 7 x 1 inch white plastic enclosure that spawned wild speculation is back again. This time, the report rules out the possibility of it being a power supply or an external SuperDrive. Apparently... (isn't the suspense just killing you?), the enclosure includes an opening "that effectively includes one entire face" of it. A screen, perhaps?

I wouldn't bet the proverbial farm, though. It could still be an iCoaster for keeping those terrible water rings off your wood furniture...
