CUPERTINO, Calif. (FP) — Apple today rolled out its latest product in a bold attempt to prove that it can stay on the cutting edge of design and innovation.
The assembled audience at Apple Headquarters gave Apple's iCycle a thunderous ovation for about ten seconds before mass texting ensued.
Both the MacBike and the MacBike Pro have a built-in 16GB or 32GB iPod Touch, and are fully rechargeable by human pedal power. The MacBike Pro also has Siri personal assistant installed, for directions, for remembering which Starbucks your exes frequent, and much more.
New Apple CEO Tim Cook seemed excited by his company's latest foray into uncharted territory as the iCycles were unveiled at Apple Headquarters Friday morning. The iCycle will roll off assembly lines for sale on November 11th.

According to industry insiders, Apple's rival Microsoft is also poised to introduce a line of cycles sometime early next year, although specifics haven't been leaked. Microsoft is being characteristically silent on the subject.

Rumors of MacBike Air have already begun to circulate in Silicon Valley, although the Federal Aviation Administration has firmly denied that air space will be authorized for iCycle commuter traffic.
