I was really looking forward to opening a bottle of wine and watching a good ole' fashioned two-hour-long Stevenote tonight...only 1 hour. Blah.

Tell me about it!
Here's a brief summary of the keynote:
We've sold a lot of stuff, thanks.
Here's some news to rock your world: We're moving completely to intel.
Don't worry though, cos we've actually been doing this all along, and have some neat stuff to confuse you and try to convince you not to worry and you should still go out and buy a $3000 computer with a chip that will not be in use in 2 years..
Here's a few more people to tell you not to worry: CEOs of other companies.
Here's some free stuff so you don't feel too bad.
Nothing else - Bye!
They could at least have had a product/significant update!

I'm still somewhat of a newbie, less than a year switched, so I'm curious: Wouldn't WWDC have announcements dealing with OS and other Apple conferences deal with product announcements? Is there a trend?

EDIT: also, it seems the discussions aren't focusing on the fact that (in the CNBC interview) Steve alluded to several developments of new product lines in regard to the Intel chip.

not to mention thinking about new stuff that was introduced at the WWDC! what a letdown, i really miss the introduction of new/better/faster hardware and now all we have is speculation about how/when this macintel switch will happen. :confused:

One lame hour, Steve looked like a freaking dork in those K-Mart pants and black shoes with no product announcements.

Worst. Keynote. Ever.

Black shirt, jeans, white shoes, Steve. :rolleyes:

I have never understood anyone considering Steve Jobs a fashion maven during any part of his public life. :eek: ;) :rolleyes:

Didn't you say that about his last Keynote as well?

All you have to do is wear all black and you are Fashionable. Try it!

Just don't wear all white. That's too Victoria Gotti.

I heard they are actually Wal-Mart pants. From their "Transitions" line. ;)

I believe the PowerMac G5 was announced at WWDC. So sometimes big product announcements are definitely made there.

Also, I was reminded of how irritating Roz Ho's voice is. And newly found out how irritating the Adobe CEO's voice is. When the guy from Wolfram was the normal one... :rolleyes:

I didn't learn too much, but I thought it was pretty good showmanship. :)

I'm always amazed when the dictionary tool reveals that I am, in fact, using real words. :D I'm never quite sure. And now I'm feeling bad though, about making fun of Roz Ho's voice. I hope she doesn't have some sort of motor impairment. :( But, please, for the love of God, stop saying "MacBew," crazy lady! :eek:

I'm sorry, as I didn't watch the keynote (yet... or never, haven't decided) what is she trying to say there?

It's nice to know that words you are using are real, especially when they are good words.

To quote my sister "Words are awesome".

Hehehe.... Microsoft calls it's Mac-folk the MacBU (Mac Business Unit). And Mohan thinks that Mac-Bee-You sounds much better than MacBew. :D But then again, Mohan was also always partial to Mac OS Ex. :eek: Which places me firmly in the heretic camp, where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth, and not even a Pentium 4 with Hyperthreading can keep you warm at night. :D

ooooooooooooOOoOoooooooooh.

that's silly!

But perhaps funny, maybe I will watch this keynote, for comedic value, Jobs wearing all black, a grown woman who sounds like she's 4, you know, this is starting to sound like that vault of horrors photoshop thread from a while ago.

Oh yeah, I always called it Ex.

Sorry if that offends anyone, I hope I haven't lost too many friends on this board.
