[Comment From K3.london]
I like that !
3:47
[Comment From K3.london]

3:56
tgr:  @K3: So far, I think everyone agrees this is a better, more exciting Apple keynote. I would say it’s miles better than MWSF 2009. A new iPhone (very likely) will add to this.
3:56
[Comment From MANOJ JOGIA.]
Even I am wAiting for 3.0
3:56
tgr:  Developer video done, talking about the release of 3.0

4:30
tgr:  Here’s another dev. “Pasco”
4:32
tgr:  If the new ngmoco:) game is out today, and uses 3.0 technology, there’s reason to believe that 3.0 will also arrive today.

4:43

4:56
[Comment From JPH]
I thought AT&T was only US carrier. How does it not allow tethering????

3:30

tgr:  Demo of the new in-built-to-the-dock Expose

tgr:  Safari is the “fastest browser on any platform”

3:32

tgr:  Expose works by holding down on an app’s dock icon for a few seconds. all the app’s windows appear before you. it’s pretty neat.

3:32

[Comment From MANOJ JOGIA.]

Yes.

3:32

[Comment From K3.london]

it is about time for quicktime… QT’s never met the apple standards. So let’s hope for the best

3:33

tgr:  Top Sites, History search…

3:35

[Comment From K3.london]

Safari 4 down load today ? So sweet.

3:41

tgr:  Ok, I’m back. Sorry about the outage.

3:43

tgr:  There’s apparently more “Power for YOU!”

3:43

tgr:  Lots more MS Exchange support in Snow Leopard. We’re talking Mail, iCal, Address Book, right out of the box, built in.

3:43

[Comment From Garrett]

3:47

[Comment From K3.london]

I like that !

3:47

[Comment From K3.london]

29 USD for the upgrade !!! Yiep Yiep

3:55

tgr:  There are 50,000 Apps now.

3:56

tgr:  @K3: So far, I think everyone agrees this is a better, more exciting Apple keynote. I would say it’s miles better than MWSF 2009. A new iPhone (very likely) will add to this.

3:56

[Comment From MANOJ JOGIA.]

Even I am wAiting for 3.0

3:56

tgr:  Developer video done, talking about the release of 3.0

3:57

4:03

tgr:  Tethering is a now formally announced 3.0 feature.

4:03

tgr:  Australian readers: Vodafone and Optus will support tethering.

[Comment From K3.london]

4:41

[Comment From JPH]

Gotta be. i bet Jobs makes an appearance holding it or something……..

4:41

tgr:  @JPH: An interesting theory!

4:42

tgr:  No demo, due to technical difficulties. Line6/Planet Waves are cut short.

4:43

[Comment From K3.london]

[Comment From j.s.]
