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?

The most impressive thing for...

The most impressive thing for me was the corporate name change. No longer Apple Computer as all the Amazon advertisements on your page state, just Apple - like most of us have called them all along. Maybe that's why they were playing all the Beatles' music, to rub it in Apple Records face. "Nyah, nyah! We are Apple!"

I think that they have definitely changed the mobile phone world. Now I will have to hear more annoying sounds from the urban environment as people assign irritating noises to their incoming calls and incoming chat messages with the Mac ease of customization.

I didn't want another phone - just a widescreen iPod - and maybe PDA.

Tepid response from me.

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

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