Yer and everyone knows Bill Gates is to rich to pop open the back and rub the batterys  :laugh:


They used an IR repeater to get the signal strong enough. The problem was with television cameras and other remote controlled equipment. Every camera has a very powerful IR autofocus transmitter, powerful enough to scramble a realtively weak remote control IR beam.

I guess the cameras weren't rolling while they were testing...

man, I never realized how nice HD really is. They are running a feed right off a camcorder. You think DV was better than VHS, this stuff makes regular DV look like a joke.

?we just keep making it better and better?

current generation of DVD gives you a nice letterboxed version.

New camcorders coming out

Sony HDV Camcorder-$3499

while you all talk about windows stuff:

[12:58 PM] A new PocketBook iPhoto book! There are other new sizes, too. 20 pages for 9.99, 19.99, and 29.99. The PocketBook is 3.99! AND IT'S AVAILBILITY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD THE FIRST DAY IT LAUNCHES! - posted by Bryan

[12:56 PM] You can buy books direct from iPhoto now, and photo prints are reduced to 19 cents per print! - posted by Bryan

[12:55 PM] Definitely a cool feature. - posted by Bryan

[12:55 PM] "Now I wanna show you the good stuff." Moving on to the Books...again.

Picking the "Travel" theme for a book. There are some very cool ways to lay out images now, including this very cool mosaic effect, the ability to put images at an angle, the ability to edit phots directly in the Book layout mode. - posted by Bryan

[12:52 PM] Steve showed a new feature that allows you to straighten an image (image rotation, in other words). It was very easy to use with a grid, and it was fast. A very nice feature for consumers. Very cool. - posted by Bryan

Sony guy is now on stage to talk about HD.

Steve liked the camera so much he invited Sony to come to the stage.

Again, the year 2005 is the year of HD-in the HOME

They both mentioned Blu-ray DVDs for the new HD DVD format.

The sony guy joked with Steve about ?Just do the Software!? Implying Sony doesn?t want Apple to make good hardware

Sony will continue to develop smaller and cheaper HD cameras in the future.

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.


Forget Apple. At 1:00 PM EST today AMD shares have dropped 25%. Woah!

nice animation in the themes

there?s a moving marquee of movies and photos moving across the top of the menu, and he dropped photos and movies into the spots on the marquee. It?s hard to describe, but I?m sure we?ll see demos all over the web today.

The interface looks pretty much the same from what I can see on screen.

There?s a nice wedding theme, and a claymation looking kids theme.

Heh, a baby mobile with movies in all the mobile parts.
