At LAST!!!


A 17" MacBook Pro was announced today. With a 1920 x 1200 pixel MATTE screen option. Hurrah!

Oh, and there are new versions of iWork and iLife, loads of whizzy new features... and DRM-free music on iTunes... and the ability to buy/download songs to your iPhone...

But did I mention the 17" MACBOOK PRO... WITH A MATTE SCREEN...

For me the favourite announcement has to be the iPhone app for controlling Keynote '09 presentations on the Mac.

Your phone connects to the Mac via WiFi, so it's not a line of sight control like the apple remote, and the screen of the iPhone displays the notes for your presentation (stored in the Keynote file on the Mac) while also allowing you to control the slideshow.

Gotta love it. Oh, it's not free and only works with the new iWork '09 version, though. The iPhone app "Keynote Remote" costs 59 pence.

but, i'm sure there is a far more complex, vastly inferior, freeware version available... you disappoint me conrad...

Does it iron shirts?

Make toast?

brett jordan said...

Although these features are not advertised, they are available as 'easter eggs'...

to iron shirts, hold down 'control-option-command-i-r-n' while placing the laptop over a slightly damp shirt

for toast, hold down 'shift-option-command-t-s-t', while gently pushing a slice of thin-sliced bread into the optical disk drive... for a lighter or darker colouring, press the 'up' or 'down' keys during the toasting cycle
