    This was discovered on the newest computers, it's just an indication that Apple is prepping for the Intel switch, and that that piece of software has already been prepped.

    Yes, one of which I have...I also think it is another indication of x86 Macs at MacWorld, probably laptops with built in iSights, as rumored.

    I suppose this could also hint at an updated iMac (see the other forum for more discussion on that matter....), since it is currently the only mac that uses PhotoBooth.

    I really don't think the iMac is going to be updated so soon, I think it's definitely going to be laptops. Remeber the patent Apple filed for the iSight camera built into the latch?

    Bingo. A new iBook will almost certainly have this feature

    Good, that's as it should be. I'd be worried if they weren't getting Universal apps out there by now. They need every single one of their apps ported over to universal binaries by the time they launch the Macintels.

    I cant believe what I saw at an Apple reseller yesterday.

    Photobooth is an INCREDIBLE selling tool for those new iMacs. I saw tons of people just using that thing. Mostly kids, but mindshare is important. Ive *never* seen people having such fun on a computer. Not just an enjoyable computing experience, but fun. What if Apple could implement some kind of software for it, similar to the EyeToy? That would be cool.

    Seriously, there were many more people checking out the iMacs at this store than any of the PC stuff. The grandads were waiting in turn for a go and when the kids were done, I shown them how easy it was to set up iPhoto slideshows etc.

    I wish I worked at an Apple retail store sometimes. Honestly, is there much greater job satisfaction than getting somebody to switch, or just seeing them actually smile while using a computer? I never thought Photobooth would be such a thing when I saw Jobs announce it at the special event.
