Some notes after watching keynote

stream of observations while watching quicktime stream

  • dot Mac will now keep track of the IPs of all your machines, so that you can share contents cross networks. Sounds like the beginning of a logack integration.
  • you would also think that Back to Mac is gonna need an Airport or some serious port forwarding. How will it know all my machines behind my airport since they have the same IP if I'm remote.
  • if they say 5 points of navigation until you become paralyzed... apple has only one more finder view to add before we all turn to stone. (list view, icon view, column view, cover flow view)
  • core animation demo - so hot. reminds me of the Photosynth Prototype
  • boot camp for leopard - Dan alerted me to a blurb yesterday that according to apple.com has hibernation support.

    Leopard brings a quicker way to switch between Mac OS X and Windows: Just choose the new Apple menu item "Restart in Windows." Your Mac goes into "safe sleep" so that when you return, you'll be right where you were. It's much faster than restarting the computer each time.
    Likewise, a "Restart in Mac OS X" menu item in the Boot Camp System Tray in Windows makes for a faster return to Mac OS X. With Windows hibernation enabled, you can pick up where you left off.

    Well at least it was on Apple.com - they've since removed it. Wonder what that means?

  • iphone anouncement was such a non announcement. did they really tell you anything we didn't know? of course it would be available to load webpages. yawn.
  • and what about Apple.com? Quite the refresh. Tho perhaps to simple in navigation. Trailers that used to be three levels deep, is now 4 levels deep - and is hidden under Mac -> Quicktime. But isn't Quicktime cross platform? At least they have the hot "spotlight esq" site search.

btw - mt 4 beta has issues with safari 3 beta. who do I complain to?
