Apple's Diagnostic Icon Identifications

Mac, iPod and iPhone diagnostic icons are very pretty and look very stylish but I have been unable to locate anyplace that will tell me what they are and what they represent. I even called Apple and tried to pay for an answer and got nothing. Can anyone direct me to a dictionary of these icons or is it just some guessing game for them to know and us to find out?

Is this a good question?

+1 for a really difficult question to find the answer to. Ralph


I was hoping someone would know because I can't find anything. So Apple uses diagnostic icons and won't tell people what they mean. That kind of rubs me the wrong way.

That good for the iPod and exactly what I was looking for. Now just need the same for Mac & iPhones.
