MacWorld keynote System
In case you missed it, Steve Jobs gave a very interesting keynote this morning at MacWorld.

You can download the QuickTime video at one of these three locations:

1000mbit stream [This is a 1.7 gigabyte file; as of 1/17, it seems to have vanished]
100mbit stream
56K stream

He gave a very exciting demo of the new OS X features, including (amongst other things) hierarchical capabilities in the dock, the return of the Apple menu at the left edge of the screen, customizable finder navigation features, and (amazingly cool!) QuickTime movies playing in the dock! Also, it looked very fast in general use (of course, he was probably on the fastest new machine).

In addition, he introduced some very cool new hardware and software. Go to MacCentral's notes live from the keynote for all the details. The most interesting things (to me, anyway) were DVD recording hardware in the new high-end G4's, iDVD, iTunes (for free!), built-in Finder-level CD burning in the new boxes, and (of course) the Titanium PowerBook!

In all, it was a very impressive show. The most relevant OS X items of interest were the price ($129) and the ship date (Saturday, March 24th).

On a related note, anyone interested in buying a slightly used G4/350 AGP? ;-) I'm thinking I really really want one of the new 733mhz machines ... and I wish I had some viable excuse to need a new G4 Titanium PowerBook!

Pop up folders

Did everyone notice that the improved dock also obviates the need for pop-up folders? You
now have options when clicking on items in the dock if you hold down the mouse button or,
presumably, control-click. You can check it out at the new Mac OS X theatre at

I hate to post twice...

but, come on! It's only $400 more! If you can afford the 733, just wait another month or two,
save the money, and buy a TiPB! Consider it a service to this site! You can post a review, or
just post shots of it and laugh at the unwashed masses who don't have one! : )
