I don't know the advantage of 64bit vs. 32bit. Must be much better quality. Seems like it would require completely different hardware.
06-11-2007, 12:50 PM #7
Nope, MacBook Pro's have been shipping with 64 bit capable Intel chips since launch of Intel last year. There just hasn't really been any software to take advantage of that ability.

fandango widget sounds cool. need that on iPhone.
06-11-2007, 12:52 PM #9
10:51 Web Clip is cool, basically picks a portion of a web page and allows you to have that portion as a widget... how cool.
06-11-2007, 12:53 PM #10

iChat allows you to drag other apps into it, such as iPhoto to share photos, etc in iChat.
You can drag movies into iChat, as well as music, etc...
Feature #10 - Time Machine.
11:03 Can backup with Time Machine to an external drive, or plug in an external into your AirPort Base Extreme, and all computer can share one drive. Very cool.

isn't time machine just like system restore?
06-11-2007, 01:06 PM #16
Similar, but on steiroids. There is no need to schedule anything, it automatically does it, and you can scroll back through previous versions of files within the Time Machine, preview all the files without having to restore, and choose which one you want to restore, then restore it. Sexy.
They all got copies of Leopard. Helllloooooooo, bit torrrent tonight.
"Now, we've got basic version, which is gonna cost... $129. We've got premium version, which is gonna cost... $129."
Making fun, only one version, haha.
"since we're all here today, there's one other thing we want to tell you.. ."
over 18 million Safari users.
