Yesterday Apple previewed Panther (Mac OS X 10.3) and also released Safari 1.0 and iChat AV. iChat AV is the thing I’ve gotten most used to at the moment due to the niftiness of having access to an audio and video stream – the quality is somewhat amazing as well – it’s the first time I’ve ever seen video this good over a videoconferencing link and I’ve been playing with this sort of thing since about 1995.
They also announced the Power Mac G5 which is a big deal though most people won’t realise it. Frankly, in terms of processing it’s like comparing a modern computer to a computer from more than 10 years ago. We’ll not see the benefit of it right now and people will wonder how useful it was.
Looking forward to the future….
