    USB 3.0 :o

    Personally I don't see the point of buying the MBP when it's updated if it doesn't have USB 3. Why only go half way? Like Core2Duo, USB 2 is outdated and USB 3 has been out on the PC market for some time, and as a power user it'll mean a lot to me in the future. So I wouldn't buy into this new generation of CPUs if it doesn't have the new generation of portable storage controllers.

    If Apple announce i7 with USB 3 next week I'll be the first in line. If not, I'll wait 6 months for the next refresh. Seems to make sense compared to being stuck with USB2 for years to come, just like C2D now.

    It's not like there's a ton of USB 3 peripherals on the market yet. I could see Apple waiting till the next update on this one.

    To call USB 2 "outdated" is kind of ridiculous. A few people have put it on a few computers and there are some peripherals out there. 98% of USB peripherals are still USB 2. Hardly outdated.

    Steve looks unhealthy. He's not as sharp as he used to be. His keynotes were flawless. He stuttered several times, forgot what he was saying in mid sentence, and handed a considerable amount of the keynote to other people. Steve was a control freak in past WWDC keynotes.

    I think he may be in not-so-good health. But I've said that before.

    I had the same reaction... he almost looked gaunt. I just compared shots of Steve yesterday with his appearance at the January Macworld Expo, and there's a noticeable difference. Plus, the tag team approach to demoing Leopard's features made it seem as if he needed time to rest in between the parts of his presentation.

    Top 10 defense contractors employ over 1 million people. If you cut their federal contracts by 40%, how many people will they have to lay off, 40%? 30% 20%. Do the math.

    Why is that different for any other part of the federal budget? Federal $ = Federal jobs + Contractor jobs.

    Just as a rough estimate using the numbers from and

    The total discretionary federal budget is ~1.45T and civilian payroll is ~2.5M This comes out roughly to 580K/direct federal civilian job. (Since military is included in the budget, but not the jobs, it's really should be quite a bit lower than that.) And of course the money that does not go to pay a federal employee's salary or benefits will go to pay the salary of benefits of a government contractor or subcontractor. (The number is not that far off from what I am used to as a budgetary consideration for DoD R&D engineering contracts, so I'll stick with it).

    So a $60B cut (that isn't enough) will result in > 100K federal jobs lost and likely a similar number of first line government contractors.

    Are you calling those people who bought the iTunes beatles songs stupid?


    I'm saying that all those people who said, "Everyone who likes the Beatles already have all of their albums" (ahem, that list includes me! :eek:) weren't just wrong, they were epically wrong. :cool:

    While I'm happy that this is probably the reason for the increased battery life, I'm concerned about the life span of the screen. How much of a limited span are we talking about?

    Edit: according to wikipedia, 5,000 hrs. For comparison, a typical LCD has a life of 50,000 hrs (30,000 hrs for lamp).You may be right about the LCDs (I've not seen this as an issue with the iPods, though), but Apple (and others) calculate Battery lifespan in charge cycles, not hours:
    A properly maintained iPod battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity after 400 full charge and discharge cycles. You may choose to replace your battery when it no longer holds sufficient charge to meet your needs.(Link (

    That should give about 8-10 000 hours for the new 24 hour capacity nanos, if my calculations aren't way off... :)

    So you'll need to change the battery 3-5 times before you start worrying about the screen... and that is with the newest, and best batteries... older batteries had lower capacity, and thus lifespan....

    I still wonder where the Airport and Bluetooth antennas are.

    They stick out from underneath the case. I'm pretty sure you can see that at some point during the Keynote speech (look for the blue "transmission circles" next to the Mac Pro -- the antenna is at the center of the circles).

    My speculation is simple... Front row wasn't shown just because they're not ready to release the new cinema displays with built-in cameras yet. My guess is that the price-drop on the existing displays is to move them before the ones with integrated cameras are intro'd.

    They force you to make backups instead of being able to go on your account and download everything you bought if you need to again. (That is increased cost on my side, because I have to buy more hardware to do it and need to not only store it but store it again as backup.)

    I sympathise with lots of your points, but this one doesn't necessarily stand up.

    Cost of an external hard disk to back up my entire music library (if I had bought it all from iTunes): Approx �40

    Cost of shelving to hold all my CD's: Approx �200

    I certainly hope that the resolution on the Apple Movie Store will be AT LEAST 480x720 (aka 480P). Otherwise, between Netflix and super cheap DVDs these days, I don't see how Apple can compete with lower than DVD resolution.

    If they are really smart (and the studios play ball, which is doubtful) they would go straight to 1080P.

    I agree with you on the DVD quality. But could imagine how long it would take to downlaod a 1080p film? Days! The hard drive space would be another thing, it would be about 10 or 11 gigs for one film! At least. This is not going to be possible for at least 3 or 4 years I would say.

    I'm not sure if my macbook's shutdown apply to the ones being discussed, but I suppose that's my question. I received my macbook in early september, and within a week it started to freeze the screen intermittently, and after a few days became more and more frequent. BUT THEN it started giving me kernel panics often. Both issues built up until I was having to shut down my computer 7+ times in a day. These were all random occurrences with no links to running certain programs, etc. I sent it in to AppleCare and they replaced the HD (after I had already wiped it, reinstalled, and the problem started again). After a couple weeks of getting my serviced macbook back, the problem has started again from the start, starting slow and then happening 7+ times in a day. AppleCare has told me that there is nothing they can do until the problem becomes increasingly worse, to the point that they can reproduce the problem easily. This is very upsetting, since with the very consistent progression of these kernel panics (and freezes) will land right around my midterms....ANYONE have ANY suggestions here? I don't even know if this is in relation to the random shutdowns you're talking about... But I'm desperate here.

    300-600 mb over the air?


    Yes, completely unacceptable! Over a typical WiFi network, it may take a massive 600 MB / 10 Mbps = 8 minutes! That's a conservative estimate. My DSL connection is at 18 Mbps.

    Then it's a greater problem for those who have data caps in my opinion. But that's not a new problem for those, and downloading iOS updates. It's just that this time it doesn't need to pass through iTunes first.

    Sigh. None of the batteries I have for my 12" PowerBook are covered, not even the one that the Apple store recommended I stop using due to the excessive heat (which died 5 days out of warranty and Apple would do nothing about). Sucks.

    Web developers need to use approved open standards and stop using Flash as a crutch. And if by Apple's own image, you mean far superior open standards that are approved by the W3C, then yes! :rolleyes:
    How is using what's often times necessary a crutch? Trying putting any kind of multimedia on your website or handling reliable file uploads and you'll quickly see why you need Flash to reach the broadest audience. Developers have been shouting to the W3C for years for what we need and HTML5 still doesn't address much of the stuff you'd rely on Flash for.

    Sadly, most Flash use is gratuitously used by developers with no html standards based alternative (which is stupid to say the least) so Flash gets a bad rap but when it's done well, it blends right in. There's a reason why Yahoo, Gmail, youtube, vimeo, etc. all use flash.

    Steve said that Oct. 23.. that iPod will be 5 years old.. it sounded like to me that there might be vPod coming out that day! (or Tuesday) and that's a great news!!!! :)

    vPod = Video iPod but i like this word a lot better!!

    Geez, this is a MONEY LOSER if there ever was one.
    I loved the beatles when I was 6.
    But, these days who's going to be buying these tracks!!!

    Steve must love the Beatles, because this is a gift.
    And will hardly be a profitable venture.

    Yes, the stereo effect on the early albums is hard on headphones.
    The drums ONLY in the Right ear.
    The Guitars ONLY in the Left...

    Beieve me, this will sell big time. Look what catalogue tracks have sold. Alot of old boomer stuff. As Morrissey said...Repackage repackage. But yes the remastered versions in both CD (and 5.1) and online versions will be really big. I mean U2 sells a ton of even their 20 year old music on itunes.

    Good developers dislike regulation, but in the case of apps, I think its needed. Without regulation, I can just go and make some crap app (that wouldn't work) put a $0.99 price and hope for 20-40 fools a month to accidently buy it. Repeat this step probably 100s of times with clueless "developers" who don't know what they are doing. Regulation at least guarantees the app works, although the functionality and usefulness of the app is up for judgement by the end user.

    My girlfriend is having a field-day. Being a Dell fan-girl, I was like nyahhhh your laptop's gonna explode.

    Gotta watch out where you apply that schadenfreude. It often comes back to bite you in the end!

    That's exactly how I felt when I first heard about Dell's big safety recall, knowing it was a matter of time before Apple followed suit because of their own extensive use of Sony batteries.

    My girlfriend is also a Windows user, but she's no fan-girl. She says her ThinkPad T43 will be her last PC. :)

    And if the US spent even a fraction of the $600 billion a year it spends on its military on aid then we'd all be better off - free mosquito nets for Africans would be a good start (

    I sometimes wonder what the world would be like today if over the last 30 years we had spent 80% of our military budget on actually productive shite.
