Well, today was every Mac users favorite unoffical holiday: MacWorld Keynote day. While a live streaming video feed was not available this time around, Steve Jobs had no problems delivering on all other fronts.
- Mac Mini — This could be my mom’s next computer. I’d also like to repopulate the lab at work with some of these I think.
- iWork — Keynote 2 has some nice improvements, but Pages is the coolest looking word processor I have ever laid eyes upon!
- iPod Shuffle — Apple’s bid to corner the flash player market is a nice combination of form, price and function.
- iLife — Apple has updates for iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, GarargeBand and iTunes.
- Various Tiger (10.4) demos.
- Quicktime 7 which will be coming with MacOS X 10.4.
I think I’m most excited to play with the Mac Mini and the updated iWork applications. maybe I can get work to pick up the tab for some Apple hardware and software research ;-).
