Espresso, home

Apple have announced a whole bunch of interesting (to Apple users) stuff today:
  • Snow Leopard will be out in September. It will be $29.
  • Safari 4 is now available for download. It's faster than anything else, allegedly. If you're one of the few people whose internet connection is so fast that you truly believe your browser is slowing you down, Safari 4 is for you. You need to upgrade to Leopard 10.5.7 first - but if you use your Mac for audio stuff, make sure that 10.5.7 is a good idea. Your hardware might not be working with it yet. I think I just felt a disturbance in the force; like a million users yelling, "Fuck you Digidesign!"
  • iPhone 3.0 will be available for download on June 17. And yes, most of those rumoured new features really exist. Even TomTom navigation. And accessing your iDisk from the phone. That makes MobileMe something worth really having all of a sudden.
  • The iPhone 3GS has also been announced. It's faster, with better battery life, a compass, a better camera, and up to 32GB storage.
  • Firewire is included in the 13" Macbook Pro. Good news for anyone wanting to do recording on a very small Mac. Unless they want to use Safari 4 at the same time: that could get tricky.
Also, in non-Mac news, I didn't go to Seven Seeds today. I will soon, though.
