    Apple has placed a streaming QuickTime link to The Power of X Presentation, given on Macworld SF day 2 by Apple's Senior VP of Software Engineering, Avie Tevanian and VP of Worldwide Product Marketing, Philip Schiller. It's a somewhat technical presentation delving into the guts of OS X and what makes them so robust. Definitely worth a watch.

    Can't watch past 49 minutes!?!?

    When I get about 49 minutes into the stream, it stops. I can go back and easily watch the first 49 minutes, but asking for anything past 49 minutes, will not work? Strange. Anybody else?

    No problems

    Watched whole thing, was pretty good too. Loved that demo of simulated water!

    that new script stuff looks really nice, I can think of at least 10 ways that would speed up my work day by a lot.

    49 1/2 minutes

    Anyway, back to the 49 minute problem. A message "454 session not found" error appears. I wonder if it is something to do with the speed of the connection? Do the streams read different files, depending on the QT speed setting? If so, maby the 56k modem file is corrupt or something.

    I really want to see the rest.

    I was right I think. Bump up the connection speed to 112kbps, and you should get the sound over a 56k modem

    Water demo

    I seem to remember that guy that demoed the water simulation saying they were going to make it available for download. Did anyone catch the url?

    Re: Water demo

    I got off my lazy butt and found it (well, actually I'm still sitting on it, but you know what I mean).
    It's www.tweakfilms.com - the app isn't up there yet, but they do mention it.

    Is there a possibility of downloading this stream as a quicktime-file? If yes, how is the URL?

    Thanks.

    Great presentation, even though I only saw 49 minutes of it. I guess I will just have to download one of the files on my work's t1 line.
