Spy shots are the images sent to rumor sites from secret sources and shadowy situations. They are supposedly from testing labs, or manufacturers, or even from bus riders who think they just saw an Apple employee flashing the latest goods on the commute home. Simply put, we can't get enough of them.
What makes them so compelling? Is it the hope that you will be able to tell your friends that you saw "it" first? Is it the rebel in you, that wants to believe in a world where someone is willing to defy the legendary secrecy of Cupertino? Do you just love to laugh at really bad Photoshop jobs?
