Last August, George Jones, then Editor-in-chief, in the Home Theater PC issue, invited readers to submit ideas for their "Fantasy PC." I submitted an idea for an HTPC built inside a 1950's style Wurlitzer "Bubbler" jukebox. George acknowledged my submission and said he would turn the idea over to Nathan Edwards for follow-up.

Since then, George has left Maximum PC, and I have yet to hear anything regarding whether or not Nathan Edwards was able to use my idea. If for no other reason than to get some closure here, I would greatly appreciate hearing back from somebody on the editorial staff on this matter.

I did see that email, and that idea, but haven't had time to track down a vintage Wurlitzer jukebox. I'm sure you could put a PC in there, though. It'd look awesome.

You can find modern versions of such jukeboxes on eBay. I've seen several such jukeboxes there within the past few months.
