Macworld Keynote

My random reactions to Macworld Keynote announcements.

Face recognition in iPhoto is pretty slick tech. Tagging people on facebook is way too laborious right now, this will speed up the uploading of drunk blackmail pictures.

Music lessons in Garage Band is something I’ll personally be using. I’m excited for the prospect of guitar lessons by John Mayer. I can dream, can’t I?

New Keynote templates and transitions will enable more crappy slide presentations possible. I’m a believer in less is more for presentations. All those fancy transitions and animations should be used sparing. Yeah, like was a rousing success. I give it a year until it’s somewhat stable and another year until it has feature parity with Google Docs.

New 17″ MacBooks with crazy new batteries. Batteries are tough tech but I for one cannot wait for batteries that last 24 hours.

DRM-free iTunes is fantastic. Too bad is still 10c cheaper per song (and iTunes-Plus is $1.29, that’s 40c

That’s it? Oh wait… one more thing! That’s right, AAPL just took a dive.
