Wow, Apple just announced a new 30" display. 2560 x 1600 resolution. They revamped their whole display line. The housings now match the aluminum G5. The 30" requires so much data transfer that it requires a dual DVI connection. Of course, Apple has paid attention to the details as usual. Each monitor has 2 USB 2.0 ports and 2 FireWire ports. I'm a little confused by the statement that says "Even better, it can drive two 30-inch displays, giving you the ultimate creative canvas." How's that going to work if you need both ports to drive one monitor? Anyway, just stuff to drool over . . . the video card alone is 600 bucks, and the 30" display is $3300.

They of course talked about how BMW now has an iPod option, but since WWDC is the developer conference, they talked about lots of new OS features. Some nice stuff, like instant searching (similar to how iTunes does, but for the whole system), integrated RSS, and Dashboard. Apple also has some fun banners up that read "Redmond. Start Your Photocopiers," "Redmond, we have a problem," "This should keep Redmond busy," and "Introducing Longhorn." The last one, for those who don't know is a jab at MS' next version of Windows, codename Longhorn - the implication is that version 10.4 of OS X has all the features that MS is going to put into Longhorn. Only images I could find are in this forum, about half way down the page.

On, and for those who care, along with WWDC, SanFran also played host to Pride this past weekend . . .
