    CNN has picked up on a story from Patently Apple, the website which forensically examines Apple patent applications for anything juicy, which this time has revealed a very interesting looking device which is referred to in the patent as an “Apple iMac Touch with Flex Baseâ€. This has led many experts to conclude that Apple might be in the process of developing a computer that looks like a desktop computer, and indeed sits on a desktop exactly like a normal computer would, but then, hey presto, it tilts and turns into a huge desktop iPad! Ingenious, no?!

    According to CNN, the patent explains how the device would switch to iOS when in “Slant Mode†from OS X (the iMac’s current operating system) which it would engage when in “Upright Modeâ€.

    Although the patent was first published in January, Patently Apple says that it was only recently able to verify the authenticity of the documents.
