Open Thread: the iPhone, Apple TV, Steve's other announcements?

Apple - QuickTime - Macworld 2007 Keynote

Apple - iPhone

Wow. Everyone here in the MacBreak war room is still perspiring as we let it all sink in. OS X. On your phone. Damn.

So what do you guys think about Steve's announcements? What surprised you? What else do you wish you'd heard? What do you think it will mean to have running OS X on your mobile phone?

I picked up the AppleTV,...

I picked up the AppleTV, it's the perfect hub for an entertainment centre... I live in Canada, and I don't think it takes any shine off at all. There are plenty of videos out there that I'll love to stream over it to my TV, and that's not even taking in to account the ability to stream my music to my home system. Of course not having DIVX support was also a little disappointing. Maybe it's coming.

The iPhone was a little disappointing, mostly because they didn't even mention Canada... I don't know what that means... are we June as well? 2008? When they can get a carrier? I would think Rogers would be all over this. The price is steep, but if it does everything it says it will, then I'm in... I paid more for my third gen iPod.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
