This day in history from:

Random Thoughts on Jobs' WWDC 2007 Keynote

You can watch Steve's keynote here, so you can relate. (You'll need Quicktime for this).

Anyway, let's start:

John Hodgeman is simply hilarious in the opening video.

First, let's delve into Leopard...

1. Stacks is cool. But no real added value to the new OS. Like the new desktop, these are mostly cosmetic.

2. The new finder with coverflow has more use. And with Leopard, all your Finder windows will look like the iTunes UI.

3. I just hope the new features (like Quicklook, Time Machine, Spaces, etc.) will not tax our old Macs too much. But then again, Apple is not Microsoft, and I'm using relatively new Macs so I'm not that worried. Plus, Leopard is 64-bit native, so that's where the power for these features will come from...

4. Did he say 300+ new features and he's just showing 10?

5. Saying that the Leopard Basic, Business, Enterprise and Ultimate versions will all cost $129 was a nice touch, with a jab at Vista at the same time...

Now for the most mind-boggling announcement, Safari on Windows (XP and Vista).

I never thought I'd see this day. And I downloaded the Safari 3 public beta for Windows XP and gave it a test run. (Of course, I used Scarlett for that on Parallels Desktop).

Anyway, the windows version has all the things I like about Safari. It's fast and for the life of me, web pages just seem to look better in Safari than in the other browsers. There's some kind of magic in the rendering, I like to think.

But this Safari also has the same reason why it's not my primary browser: it's lack of support for some Yahoo and Google web apps. I do hope that the final version will address this.

It would not hurt you to give Safari a whirl, right? So why not give it a try?

Anyway, I was sufficiently riveted when I watched the keynote. And Leopard's price is reasonable enough that I will grab a copy.

Good luck to Apple on this one.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
