Wow...what a great Keynote address from Steve Jobs, eh? (I'll add in the link to the video once it's available from Apple.) I just spent the morning bouncing between the folks at MacWorld and The Mac Observer to see their transcripts of the event. There's a lot to discuss, and rather than cherry pick stuff, I'm going to tell you all about it in parts. Here in part 1, we'll talk about some of the first things discussed in the Keynote address.

(For those of you tuning in from my website at Temple of Lore, thanks for joining us! See, I have hobbies that aren't revolved around work...umm much.)

First up would be arguably the best thing I've seen for an external backup drive...well, ever. We've all got a backup drive to make sure that our precious files, pictures, home movies and music aren't lost during a crash...and these all come in various sizes, shapes, and colors. Heck, we carry a lot of them here at YourMacStore, and they're wonderful devices. However, how many come with built in wi-fi? There are a couple, yes, but looking at this one, it's only 200GB. Yup, the Time Capsule, built to help OS X Leopard users better utilize their Time Machine program to back up their computer, actually utilizes an Airport Extreme base built into the external drive case that you can wirelessly link to and backup your files. Very nice! :)

Next up is the iPhone...and see the next blogpost for more information! :)
