Surprisingly, nothing was said about new Macs or Leopard. The keynote speech started at 17:00 GMT. Read on for the details.

sheesh, looking at this stuff makes me feel like such a luddite at times. to me, a phone should be...a phone. if I want to take pictures, I'll use a camera, if I want to surf the net or check my email (stuff I certainly do _way_ enough of already), I'll use a computer. if I want to play a game, well I have a PC, plus my rocking cool game consoles (an Atari 2600 and a Sega Genesis!) if I want to listen to music, there's the radio, CDs, cassettes, etc. but on a frickin' phone with all those tiny buttons (or in this case, no buttons)? no thanks.

what's the point of all this? to insure that the current generation of humanity has absolutely NO life away from all their gadgetry and mind numbing entertainment addictions?

I feel that too. I guess I've gotten grown up and boring and enjoy more going for a walk in the forest than running my finger up and down a touch screen... which gives me a million dollar idea of a "trainer program" that could suit this device, pretty much like "Typing of the Dead" in its time, only this is about learning to please your partner!
