Here we go...
Major news will be bold.
No iBook updates!!! ARGHHH!!!
I can't afford (and don't need) a MacBook Pro. :s
My brother got a new iMac last month. I hope he's not pissed about this. :s
teeheehee, I would be
Overslept and missed all the fun Will watch the keynote later
The keynote is up on Apple.com now, but the server is getting slammed. Hopefully others will save it and host it elsewhere.
Just watched the entire thing, skip free. Seemed a bit rushed to me, still got all the info I wanted though
nooo, MacBook Pro, god I hope the iBooks dont get renamed MacBooks
tbh though it wasnt that impresssive a keynote. The last one was really cool, this one is slightly less inspiring.
Too many demo's, not enough new products to drool over.
I think Apple definitely took it down a notch this year compared to last year. Last year showed innovation, this year showed a hardware change that we knew was coming anyway.
I thought 2006 would be "the year of the media Mac" ... or something along those lines. I guess Apple just isn't ready yet.
Last year, MWSF seemed more geared to the average consumer. This year wasn't the same. How many average consumers can afford, or need, a MacBook Pro? I was caught totally off-guard when Apple introduced an Intel-based Pro machine yesterday. I can understand that an upgraded iBook would have out-performed a G4 PowerBook, but at least give us both laptops and not just the pro version!
Last year the Mac Mini made the "switch" more appealing to PC users. What did Apple do yesterday to encourage switching even more? The average computer user doesn't care what kind of processor is in the computer, so long as it's fast.
Anywhere I can download the keynote address, the stream is just not working for me, not on my mac and not on my PC. I assume the stream is busy, having troubles connecting etc.
So if anyone has a rip, cheers.
I'm hoping to find one myself. I'll post a link if I do.
