Ok, I will bite ;)

Apple knows what they are doing, Steve Jobs knows what he is doing, if he didn't Apple would not be around today period.

Anyone who works in a profitable business knows that you don't throw all your things out to the public all at once, otherwise you would not be in business for too long. We still have 6 months before the end of the year, I repeat, we have 6 more months to wait and see what Apple has to deliver in terms of software and hardware.

Steve Jobs, in his last keynote back in January (Man I wish people would just listen to the man when he speaks in those keynotes, shakes head) Specifically said, that Apple has a lot of stuff coming out THROUGH OUT the year, which means just that. Are we going to see new iMacs? Yes. Are we going to have to wait for a new iLife suite and iWork suite? Yes, we might have to wait until January, 2008 for both of them. Or if I think what Apple is planning we could see a new iWork ready for the back to school season this fall. Who knows, but as Mac users we know something is in the pipeline.

I like the new approach that Steve Jobs is taking, announcing new things almost every month or every few months through out the 2007 year. If you think this fall is going to be boring, just wait and see what Apple has planned for the back to school season. Apple is a smart company, they have changed their ways, and mostly for the good. There is not a day that goes by where I don't constantly hear people talking about Apple. So, who cares if we have to wait awhile, it is worth the wait :).

Plus, who ever said that a WWDC was meant for hardware announcements? The only reason why we saw that happen a few years back was to get the developers moving to Intel as quickly as possible. The only way to do that is show how serious Apple was and to bring out the hardware to use the new software on. Makes sense to me.

Even if Apple just throws up a new iMac on their front page, my god, it will make every single newspaper headline and the news even without some fancy keynote presentation and not to mention for FREE.

Apple is the only company that I know of that receives FREE media publicity even when they don't try. It truly blows me away!

Umm...yeah...you go ahead and do that....I'll sit back here and wait for you to burst into flames. :)
I didn't mean that I want to start bashing Apple. It looks like a lot of people want to talk about it.

Am I disapointed that no new Hardware? Yes, a little bit. But I can't wait to get Leopard on my Mac :D

Let's turn this around and talk about what you liked in today's keynote.

The first video with the "PC" guy was hilarious!!!

Why was it closed? Probably because it had turned from a bit of venting into a flame war.
I guess I missed that part. But, isn't it easier to kill the Flame War by warning the participants to cool off but let discussion continue? Or had it already progressed past that?

I really liked the new finder, as well the AppleTV style core animation demo was impressive.

I wasn't intimating that you did. I was trying to get at the fact that it's always dangerous to restart a thread once the Bosses have closed it. :)

Nothing - but the Keynote wasn't directed at me so I'm not disappointed by it.

Spotlight has not lived up to its hype and somehow I don't think that the new Finder will. When many have gone to EasyFind, it makes you wonder if Apple is on the right track.
Sure the eyecandy is pretty but even iTunes starts to show it's limits quite early with large libraries. I can't imagine how the Finder will be able to give relevant searches with systems that have a couple of terabytes of information.

Excuse me, what is "many"? Does that mean that you and several other people you've seen on the internet have gone to EasyFind?

Because I can tell you that I know, personally, about 100 Mac users, not one of them has gone to EasyFind. Most are very happy with Spotlight, the rest doesn't use it. Some of them being home users, some of them professionals.

I agree with Tiranis... spotlight works just fine for me, and I have well over a terabyte of space on my system. I don't know anyone who uses anything other than Spotlight for searching.

The new finder does look nice, as do the other great features announced at WWDC. Looks like a great update to an already great OS if you ask me.

Oh... and the "Leopard pricing" bit had me actually laughing out loud when I read it. :)

You may be right - but a couple of TBs is beyond what most users will have, in which case there is room for more specialist apps. The users I know range from casual 'home' users to graphic pros and they all seem happy with Spotlight.
