Spymac has (http://www.spymac.com/) their own notes on the WWDC keynote as well as photos from the event.

Apple also has a page (http://www.apple.com/macosx/newversion/) with pictures and descriptions of some of the new features in Jaguar.

I'm surprised more sites didn't cover the event -- especially with all that was announced. I guess no one knew :)

I'm really excited about Ink, I use a large Intuos2 tablet and the ability to write text on it and draw sketches will become extremely usefull.

The iChat software is interesting, and did everyone notice the Avatar next to the peoples names on the screen? I'm wondering it will support animated gifs....:D

In response to Bophonic:

Well then according to my theory of 3-way processors, Apple will probably will keep the G3 in the iBook and, as stated before, will most likely be boasted to 700MHz.

Here is my theory about 3-way processors:
There are three types of processors that are of the main focus: the G3, the G4 and the G5. It would make the least bit of sense for Apple to use three lines of computer chips on five lines of products. What would consumers think? I would assume safely that it would be much easier for Apple to use only two types of processors: one for the basic consumer and one for the pro models. Since both models must suit people who will not want something slow, and since the G3 would not perform as well with OS X as a G4, since OS X uses the G4 V. Engine, the G3 would be almost useless for a processor. Also, as someone mentioned, the price of high speed G3 chips is too high, so in order to compete with speed, Apple would have to use G4 chips.

The basis of my theory: Apple cannot deal with three processors, while the G3 is being squeezed out.

Aren't those kinda old? It must be a pretty early build; the copyright only goes up to 2001.

The copyright of OS X (10.1.3) has been dated 2001, if you look under About This Mac in the Finder. Is the same thing true for users of 10.1.4? And why would this be?
