Biggest news today in my world (and that of thousands of others who were surfing the web today) was Steve Jobs’s keynote speech at Apple’s WWDC 2006. This afternoon, I followed engadget’s liveblog with thinly veiled fanaticism, and — while there were no huge surprises and no new iPods — found the new Apple news to be exciting.
Besides the announcement of a new Mac Pro, the keynote was all about Mac OSX Leopard, which is supposed to premiere this Spring. It has a handful of sweet new features and updates, the best of which is certainly Time Machine, an application which works with an external storage device to automatically back up all your data, and even allows you to “browse through your entire system as it appeared on any date.” Coolness.
Stuff not relating to Apple:
- The head of the “Girls Gone Wild” empire, Joe Francis, is profiled in the L.A. Times. His behavior is all kinds of disgusting.
- Want to see something ASTOUNDING!? Click here.
- Apparently Philadelphia has abandoned subway stations filled with breathtaking graffitti. Can someone take me to this place?
Speaking of graffitti, this sweet piece can be seen in the city of Toronto, which was forward thinking enough to commission ten artists to paint Bell Utility boxes around the city.
