Some interesting tweets today:
Paul Thurrot: "Final recap on Macworld. Mostly "eh". Exception: Battery on new 17-in MBP is interesting, unless they start catching on fire 2 mos from now"
Jason Calcanis: "#mwsf09 yawn so far"
Ryan Block: "Sun's not quiet up yet, getting prepped. Should be an interesting morning for the gadget world"
Scott Lowe: "I'm highly upset with Apple right now. Apparently, they disabled Kerberos support for SMB shares from the Finder in Leopard...why? Stupid!"
Alex Albrecht: "seems like most people are underwhelmed by the Apple Keynote at MacWorld. What do you guys think?"
Me: Well, my view is somewhat limited by the fact that I had to work and get my information secondhand. In general I didn't see anything that looked "amazing". The battery stuff isn't really new, but to Apple fans I suppose it is. Freeform polymer battery with intercell logic has been kicked around for at least a year or two. I've seen several patents applied for it from universities to corporations (mostly in Japan). I've always thought Apple does a better job of putting on a show than anyone else except maybe Hollywood, from a marketing perspective. If only Microsoft could figure out how to do that.
