Apple Yesterday, Steve Jobs of Apple held his usual keynote speech at the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference at the Moscone Center, San Fransisco. I usually thoroughly enjoy Jobs's keynotes; they are a well-planned piece of theater, complete with drama, comedy, and even action. In between, of course, some new products are announced, and some meaningless figures are given (classic example of spin doctoring: use only the figures of your strongest market, in Apple's case, the US laptop market; ignore the rest). However, this time, the theater part seemed to far outweigh the new-products-part. And that's a shame. Note: The, Tuesday Eve Column.

Am I the only one?

Am I the only one who wonders why everyone keeps adding more "stuff" to their OS? Isn't the OS just the software you have to run to get your applications working? One thing I haven't seen mentioned is how much more space will be required for install and what will be the performance hit compared to the current OS. In another 10 years you won't need any applications. The OS will do everything.

I kind of agree. "Spotlight" has been out a year--much touted as a killer feature-- and I NEVER use it. I use Devon's free Easy Find.
