MW09 keynote video

Apple has posted an official video of today's Macworld 2009 keynote event, hosted by senior marketing VP Phil Schiller. During the keynote Schiller announced several new products, including a 17-inch unibody MacBook Pro, the iLife '09 home suite, and the iWork '09 office suite. Schiller also exposed changes to DRM and pricing at iTunes. Update: Apple also posted a video talking about the battery technology used in the 17-inch Unibody MacBook Pro and the marketing video touting its battery life, battery lifespan, and other "green" features.

    Phil spends an HOUR talking about iLife to fill in the time since there was really NOTHING groundbreaking to report. New 17" MBP? Big deal, that was a no-brainer.

    NO new iMacs, NO NEW Mac Mini (that is a complete insult), no new displays.

    Yet ANOTHER u n d e r w h e l m i n g MacWorld. Instead of going out with a BANG for their last MacWorld, they go out with a WHIMPER.

    At least it was funny to see the MacRumors liveblog get HACKED by Windows folks. That was the ONLY highlight of the keynote.

    Same contents

    The same contents delivered by anyone else would be just as ho-hum as if it were delivered by SJ, but then some people believe that SJ's f*** is more fragrant than a rose.

    Keynote Address

    Frankly I think that Phil made a very good presentation and I applaud his effort.

    One reason I see for Apple pulling out of Macworld is the pressure surrounding the release of great products on the Macworld timetable. The first guest is obviously quite disappointed in the lack of introduced goodies. I work in the field of electronics manufacturing and know that there is an enormous amount of effort to put out any significant product. Couple that pressure in with the strict schedule of a trade show like Macworld and everyone in Apple is struggling. It doesn't do the family life of the Apple employees any good to meet these schedules.

    I've seen many complaints concerning issues with recent products that were released (in my opinion) before they were really ready for the public. Apple can now shift its focus from unyielding trade show time schedules to preparation of its future products and making sure as many bugs are worked out as possible before they are released. I think this will result in improved product quality and greater customer satisfaction.
