A demonstration of Tiger Mail's new capabilities drew applause from the crowd, when Jobs showed a new feature that allows users to view attached photos instantly as a slideshow and easily export to iPhoto using an on-screen icon. Mail appears to have much faster search capabilities, along with smart mailboxes, which provide you with instant search results.
The centerpiece of QuickTime 7, which will debut with Tiger, is the new H.264 video codec -- a scalable, high-quality technology that scales from cell phones to high definition video. H.264 will be used in both competing high definition DVD video formats -- HD DVD and Blu-Ray.

i like macrumors.com's coverage, extremly quick :)

Anyone know if you will be able to download the QT stream from apple's site and watch the keynote offline...

Also, watch CNBC (or maybe's it MSNBC!) at 4pm today, for I believe a Steve Jobs interview...

Not really, as was explained the MCE machine failed to display the pics cause of the infrared controller not reaching the port not cause the machine froze up/crashed ;)

could someone tell me a logical reason why apple stock is going down down down?

also, after apple's impressive show of their dashboard widgets, say bye bye to konfabulator :). I say if Konfabulator wants to salvage any part of their business, they make it really cheap for windows.

is that what really happened? Well this kind of high profile companies, it's a shame to me nonetheless. They could have tested the equipment beforehand to ensure it is working. As for bugs, only that we can't really predict.

I would speculate that these systems are tested before the show. But you can't expect it to work perfect every time.

It worked fine when they tested it, however the chairs were moved back a few feet causing them to be out of range of the infrared controller

I agree, but do re-read what creamhackered posted

It was because the infrared controller not reaching the machine port. Well that's pretty stupid mistake if you ask me. If the hardware failed for no apparent reason, well that's nothing can be done. But the infrared not reaching? :wacko:

Ok, that's acceptable. But still, they should be well aware, what's the maximum distance for the infrared controller.

Where did you get this information btw? I saw the CES video. The chair was practically at the stage front edge.

p/s I'm have nothing against Microsoft. Just thought it was really shameful if the infrared not reaching the machine being the cause. Hardware failures or bugs are out of human prediction and control most of the time, infrared distance? :unsure:

some guy who was there wrote it in his blog. He watched them moving chairs around and that was his speculation about why it worked fine before the chairs were moved and why it froze after
