Yesterday was a fairly busy day, with lots of announcements from Apple. My new Nokia 3650 also shipped, should be here by 10:30am. Without further delay, here’s the roundup:
- Safari 1.0 was released. Dave Hyatt as always has coverage in his blog: Fonts in Safari and Safari Download Size. With 1.0, developers will now be able to embed Safari in their applications.
- MacNN has a roundup of the major announcements. They also have more information on the new Powermac G5’s. 64-bit OSX, baby!
- I spent part of the afternoon yesterday chatting with the guys in #mobitopia as well as hearing coverage from #openmac.
- I’m a little dissapointed at the proprietary lock-in going on with iChat AV. You can use AIM or .Mac, but if you use any of the new whizzbang videoconferencing options, you’ve got to have a Mac on the other end.
- See also Scott Johnson’s rant entitled Apple, Panther and Paying Again for an OS Upgrade.
- See also Matthew “Silent Penguin” Langham’s post on the subject.
- MacCentral points to the Xcode environment, based on GCC3.3, sounds interesting. More info about Xcode can be found at Apple’s Panther website. It looks promising to me.
- The new G5’s are just plain SEXY. They start at $1999, so I doubt there will ever be one on my desk, but that shouldn’t stop me from dreaming about it, should it?
