so i’m a day behind, cut me some slack… :)
apple previewed some cool stuff today @ WWDC 2004. i’m most excited about spotlight and dashboard. if i’ve had one need lately it’s better search, especially as my photo and music collection grows. (no, i don’t use iphoto, thank you very much) and even though dashboard looks a whole hell of a lot like konfabulator, it’s still a welcome addition to the osX family.
the safari RSS reader is cool, too. makes sense that the browser should understand RSS and present that as an option when reading an RSS-enabled site. very cool. the new displays are cool, but i’m not shelling out any more cash for desktop stuff — a powerbook, desktop g4, and 17" cinema are fine by me…
but i digress, here are a few links that try to clear things up:
- daring fireball's view
- dave hyatt's thoughts (safari lead developer)
- extracted dashboard widgets from erik veland
- todd dominey on "proprietary hoo-ha"
