It is Apple Keynote Time Again…

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 6 Comments

I love the day of big Apple keynotes given by Steve Jobs. While rummaging around for a disk utility last week – I found my copy of the Macworld 1999 keynote where the Blue and White G3s and multi-flavored iMacs were announced. I had a smile – I eventually owned both and thought they were the best thing ever! Anyway – my friend Ken asked me if I still got as excited as I used to – and the answer is definitely yes. I love everything about the keynotes…but I especially enjoy the post keynote reactions from the people I… Read More »

WWDC From Home

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

Last year I attended WWDC and loved it. This year I was unable to attend, but I did follow the keynote address and then took a look at the Leopard Sneak Peek and the new Mac Pros. I will be very interested to see how the Mac Pros perform as I am, and always have been, disappointed with the PowerMac G5 performance. Although I look forward to hearing about more technical goodness behind Mac OS X 10.5, I am quite excited about Time Machine. I am also interested to hear what Apple does with Mac OS X Server 10.5.

The Apple Design Awards were last night, and the application Comic Life won Best Product New to Mac OS X. To celebrate, I made a real simple (and not very crafty one frame comic. (I will work on making the picture (not thumbnail) the correct size when I get home when I have some time to hack away at the picture posting plugin) On another note, I went to a great brown bag session on home automation. Things to check out if you are interested in home automation (besides your standard X10 stuff): Mister House Xtension Indigo Zigbee Alliance I… Read More »

Today was a good day. Lots of information on how to create killer Dashboard widgets, Safari feedback session, in depth information on Color Management, Subversion for the rest of us, and then upgrading to Tiger server. I am exhausted, but learning lots of really cool technologies. I am going to start working on making my own Dashboard widget, so stay tuned. What is it going to be? That is the question. If anyone has any suggestions or can think of something they want, let me know and I will try to create it for you. I also learned of a… Read More »

Well, who would have guessed that so many Penn Staters (that I either know or know indirectly) are here at WWDC. I sat down next to someone that remembered going out to a bar with me back in college. Across from us at the table sat someone that I worked with at the Penn State help desk, and then later I met people that work in the office that I worked in before I left Penn State. Wild! Day 2 summary: Penn Staters are everywhere.

It is that time of year again, only this time I got to see Steve in action, live. Fortunately and unfortunately I saw the keynote when Apple announced it’s move to Intel. That is all I care to say now on that. On another note, I am enjoying San Francisco with my wonderful tour guide, Amy Wessner She took me all over the city…riding trolley, in crazy cabs, over to Haight/Asbury, and to Fishermans’ Warph. The hills here are absolutely crazy. Day 1 summary: “Universal Binaries”
