Spent a good portion of the day at MacWorld… saw the keynote… lots of interesting news regarding this elsewhere. You know where to look.
Random_very_tired thoughts mixed in with PRETTY CRAPPY PHOTOGS:
– Safari is fast. I’ve used it for most of the second half of the day and visting my regular suit of sites. Noticably faster than IE and Chimera.
– I was shocked Safari wasn’t based on Gecko/Mozilla. I’d never heard of KHTML/KDE.
– Really, Safari is fast.
– Pop-up blocking is cool, but mostly irrelevant. Overlay ads are becoming much more prevolent these days and harded to block. (Turn off Flash? All plug-ins?)
– Airport Extreme is slick. Bridging airport base stations is slicker.
– Pseudo-quote by Steve Jobs, “Bookmarks are hard” — obviously, an avid Rands in Repose reader.
– I’m missing a good view source command in Safari more than I missing tabbed browsing.
– Jobs sure likes showing off those themes.
– Ken Burns effects?
– Given the variety of pricing schemes Apple could have done with the iApps, the iLife bundle was just a great compromise. Keep what’s free, free… charge for the bundle. Sweet.
– Nobody, I repeat, nobody thought they were updating the Powerbooks. Now that is serious secrecy.
– I can figure out how to pay for iLife, I can’t figure out how to pay for a AIBook.
