./~ You take the good, you take the bad... ./~

./~ you take 'em both and there you have... ./~

Damn you, CT! (Inside joke)

The Good:

The new versions of iPhoto, iMovie and iDVD. Neato. The increased photo capacity of iPhoto is greatly needed, as it's crashing on me with a measly 5k photos on my iMac. And the new transistions and themes in iMovie and iDVD : sex-ay.

iWeb
? At first, I was underwhelmed, but then I found this, which combined with this will make it a useful app even for those of us without a .Mac account.

The new laptops? Sex-ay. But oy vey, that name! "MacBook Pro" ? Sounds too much like "brick", and that's one word you do NOT want associated with a laptop... :-)

The new iMac
? Nice. It'll probably be my next computer, once the current iMac bites it.

The biggest impact today's announcement will have down the road, I think, is making it easier for people to podcast, bringing that medium more and more into the mainstream.

Overall, not the most earth-shattering Expo keynote ever (that honour still goes to either the 2001 or 2002 Keynotes, IMO), but a good one.
