Macworld Ho: Keynote address

January 6, 2009

I have to admit that the Art Predator missed out on the big talk this morning at Macworld 2009 by Keynote, Phil Shiller, Apple Sr. VP, Worldwide Product Marketing–but I won’t miss out on much more I promise! (OK, it was a long drive and negotiating SF parking is not easy!)

There’s no shortage of coverage about it all over the web: if you’re interested, this is a blow by blow account by crunchgear. Highlights:

9:05 – This keynote is going to blow. I guarantee it!

9:07 – Entire new version of iLife ‘09. Two more things to talk about.
9:07 – Macs grew twice as fast as the PC market.
9:06 – Mac will be the focus. 9.7 million Macs were sold in FY 2008.

9:19-There’s a travel book photo album theme that includes maps of where your images are taken based on getoagging info.

You get the idea…I overheard someone say “Phil did a great job. He didn’t skip a beat.” Yep, don’t you wish you were here?

I saw the new iLife in action–it really is cool!! (But the travel book photo album theme will get overused I bet and become common place…just like certain WordPress themes!)

The new iLife with lots of cool bells and whistles is free w/new and $80 upgrade (guess who’s getting an upgrade for her birthday…yep!)

They announced a new MacBook Pro–fancy schmancy for just under $3,000. I bet prices on ones like mine will plummet–which explains why they were on sale around Christmas!

Next post: where will I go? what will I do? or will I just sit here and keep blogging?
