We’ve come up with a very sweet solution

developers - iphone - yes please

18 days fro now - iphone


public beta safari today!

500,000 downloads of Firefox a day. Over 1,000,000 downloads of iTunes a day. Over 500M downloads of iTunes to Windows machines.

one more thing

why would you not buy ultimate

Leopard shipping in October. Basic version, $129. Premium version, $129. Business version, $129, Enterprise version $129. Ultimate version, $129.

Premium Version = $129

Basic Version = $129  - vista anyone?

“I’m freaking out right now”
Steve searches back through time until spotlight finds something having to do with architecture. He Quick Looks the document - “yes that’s what I was looking for, safe and sound”
“I’ve saved the day with Time Machine”

quick look intergrated - fast search through all files

Can plug in a drive to an Airport base station and backup more than one computer.

feature 7

and linux! comparison v vmware and paralells.. thanks for helping,but no more  bootcap here we are

bootcamp runs XP and VISTA at NATIVE SPEED

well hey its out of beta

bootcamp feature 6

live and interactive ad for apple tv

utomatic animation, text, images, video, OpenGL. Higher producttion values, etc., according to Steve. He’s showing us a wall of videos where he can zoom in and look at any particular video. It’s also searchable, but it’s not clear if that is a function of Core Animation, or the app that was made using Core Animation!!!!!

flashy animation - like vista but it can actually handle it… He’s running Gigaimage 64 to do an effect and other things to the image to show how much faster working on this huge image is in true 64-bit. This is another one for the math nerds, but it’s very cool.

Jays on a satellite phone to the UK team

feature 5 - core animation, easy to add application, developers come over from windows… windows developers are a many… jobs making it SIMPLE for new developers to come along

RUN 32bit and 64bit apps at the same time…. 32 bit 81 seconds and 64 bit 2 seconds running Pshop filters

Steve did a search or something that found the right files on another Mac not on the network. Again, this is some cool stuff. It’s the way computers should work. It could find interest in the corporate world, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

4GB photo loading, amazingly fast… 4GB!!!

32 bit v 64 bit shootout…. photo loading

Looks like some Vista influences in Mac OSX 10.5 - stand by for a safari on windows exclusive first review ever, in the world.

While the new OS X still isn't revolutionary, I am digging the new features. October is too far off!

As for the iPhone "SDK," what understood from the keynote is that all the third-party "applications" HAVE to be run in Safari. The way he accessed that example application was through Safari. Maybe they will allow you to create shortcut icons on the "desktop" that would launch Safari to a specific app.

I also wonder if you will be able to download some of the applications (ones that don't require internet access) so you can use them on your phone even if you're not connected to the internet.

As for how you would access the iPhone features through the "SDK," I am guessing it will be similar to the DOM interface when programming for browsers.

Oh, and see, the changes that I thought they were making seemed like enough to call it a new OS for the first time since. . .10.4. That was BS.

But x86, x86-64, and PPC builds, new file format, resolution independence, (something I was really pissed that wasn't a part of Longhorn) a new Finder, and integrated Boot Camp: that's well more than janking Quicksilver and calling it Spotlight.

Widgets do not make an operating systerm
