A pity there were no real surprises in SJ's bag.

Maybe it should have been called "Let's sleep in."

Let's see, a taller Nano and some extra menu options in some software. Sleeping in 'till noon would have been more productive. Will anyone ever bother to watch one of these again?

Steve looks ill still, and sounds very unenthusiastic for a keynote.

looks like the video isn't ready yet... this is just a placeholder.. clicking on the link to watch the video brings up Quicktime but it disconnects.

go to this page, you will see on the left side under "News" that the video is coming soon.

Only thing that excited me was the price drop on the iPod Touch. Just ordered a 16GB model from Apple. The Genius thing? I would have far more appreciated tabbed libraries than assumptions of what I want to hear.

No enthusiasm

The reason Jobs is seeming a little lacklustre is because today was yet ANOTHER disappointing Keynote and product rehash sorry launch. The iPhone is a very crude smartphone with a flash UI - but still sports a poor camera, terrible battery life, rubbish navigation and against something like the new Nokia N96 is a joke. The new iPods - so what? There's nothing really exciting here. iTunes? Same old same old.

What would really get me going would be:

New aluminium MacBook with backlit keyboard, BluRay DVD, 6GB Ram, 7200rpm 300gb HD blah de blah.

Gawd. Apple COME ON!!!!

Steve bobbed his head ever so slightly to the last song played. His subdued presentation is a ploy to make us long for some of the other orators with whom he shared the stage at recent events.

I can see potential Shake-to-Shuffle issues. How do tracks remain constant while jogging?

So come on, some brainiac on this thread always figures out how to download the stream directly.

Is there going to be an HD version of this? I think they posted a 720p version for the iPhone 3G announcement.

Oh really? You sound like one of those full of ***** politicians. Do you have any basis on what you just stated here? Lowest battery life? Do you care to prove it. Last I checked, the 3G outlasted just about every other 3G phone. Very crude? What does that mean? Does that mean it's a beautiful device that's innovative and has the best internet experience out there? Perhaps you got your words mixed up. I could give a crap about the camera. If you didn't know any better, a camera on ANY phone sucks. It's just not possible to fit good optics in a phone and high megapixels are a joke in a camera phone. It's all about the optics and not megapixels! If camera phones were so good, real digital cameras would be obsolete.

Let me guess, you want all this for $399? By the way what do you do that you need 6GB of RAM? Vista possibly? OS X sure doesnt need 6GB to run smoothly. I can assure you no normal user would even come close to using 6GB. 4GB is even debatable for many of us. 2GB runs wonderfully!

I think you'll just be happier buying your Nokia and Windows box with 6GB of RAM. You sound like a specs kind of guy. Let us know how it works out with your crappy products with good specs.
