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.

Either way, this phone is absolutely sweet. I mean, we're talking about Mac OS X (mobile). More apps will come out for this baby. I just shat my pants. Who cares about Leopard details? We just got a whole new Mac OS! Have you checked the demo's yet on apple's site? If the phone were available today, i'd throw my sidekick 3 at the wall, pay the money to have my T-mobile canceled, and then by the iPhone. Since i have till june, i'm gonna try to give my Sidekick away for free to a friend as long as they pick up the rest of the contract.

I'm pissed about appleTV tho. Could have been so good. They could have made it bigger with 3.5" drives (200+gig), included a WAN port so it can double as the airport extreme, and announce 720p Movies now downloadable from iTunes. Day late dollar short.

Day late dollar short.

I don't think you know what this means.

Apple is the first to bring this type of product to market (in a mass fashion, at least)... so it's not "a day late."

And it will certainly be the first one to integrate iTunes purchases. It's the first I know of the allow HD transfer from your PC over 801.11... so it's not a dollar short.

This product looks nice. It could be even better, but it still looks really exciting today.

These kind of extenders have been on the market for years. In fact, just yesterday Netgear announced a 1080p extender that plays many formats, not just Apple's. So AppleTV is literally one day late. :-)

Of course only AppleTV will play videos bought from iTunes, so it will probably take over the market despite inferior specs.
