Showtime QT video stream
In Brief: Apple has posted the QuickTime video stream of Tuesday's Showtime Special Event in San Francisco, where Apple debuted new iPods and movies as well as its next-generation Mac-mini-like iTV media center, which is expected ship early next year.... The new Mac-compatible flagship Harmony 1000 (pictured at right) now includes support for the Z-Wave home electronics standard as well as an enhanced user interface and a 3.5-inch touchscreen that gives context-sensitive controls and can display the state of one device while the user controls another.... Several users note that a custom install of new iTunes 7 software offers an option to install the iTunes Phone driver (which may be required for the newly introduced iTunes RAZR phone).... The "Macs in Chemistry" website, a resource for chemists using Apple Macintosh computers, has moved to a new location..... Adobe and O'Reilly have entered into an agreement to co- publish and co-brand books and online learning resources for developers creating applications with technologies such as Adobe Flex, ActionScript, and Adobe Flash and Flash Video.
