Macworld 2006

Just when I was ready to settle down here, this happens.

Last Tuesday, January 10, 2006, Apple Computer announced a slew of new products for the Mac community. Three of which has caught my eye (and my wallet). iWork 06, iLife 06 and the Macbook Pro.

I use iWork for my presentations and iLife for practically everything else. The great part about the new iLife is iWeb which allows me to update my dot mac account and blog, post a “photocast” and record a podcast all on my mac, fully integrated with just a few clicks. But still my main complaint abot the dot mac is the url. I hope they’ll fix this somehow. We’re already paying $100 for this, at least give us the domain name with it.

I must have the new Macbook Pro. Other than the fact that my powerbook warranty will expire sometime in April or March, I have to test this out (for personal reasons). I was hoping that they’d release this along with the rest of their pro apps such as Final Cut Studio at the same time. For those of you who didn’t know, the Macbook is the first portable mac with an Intel processor inside. Apple boasts a 4-5x speed boost from the previous G4 powerbooks. This will really help professionals in video and graphics in terms of performance. But now I have to make certain things work for the future.

More to come…
