Apple At the MacWorld conference in San Francisco, After the usual words of praise about the iPod+iTunes and the smoothness of the transition to Intel, Apple announced several new products. Surprisingly, nothing was said about new Macs or Leopard. The keynote speech started at 17:00 GMT. Read on for the details.

and no 3G in a $600-with-contract phone is better than third rate internet? please.

at least sony phones have decent cameras (at least some of them...) and work as USB mass storage devices (extremely convenient).

Yeah but the mechanical reliability is low (I have already broken the little joystick on 2 SE phones) and the bluetooth plain sucks (usb? wires are so last century :-)
There is room for improvement here, maybe Apple has licked it.

Edit: BTW Sony can kiss the mp3-player phone market goodbye now. Walkman vs iPod ? No contest.

i'd far rather transfer stuff over a USB link than over bluetooth. well, maybe a small picture is OK over bluetooth, but a 2 megapixel one is pushing it, and I'd rather poke glass into my eyes than transfer an album worth of songs over bluetooth. It's a hell of a lot faster to find a USB cable and plug it in.

hell, depending on how close you live to a computer store, it may be faster to go _buy_ a USB cable and plug it in. ;)
