CNet has a great summary of Apple’s announcements at Macworld 2009. I’ve reached the point where I can’t devote the time to monitoring the entire keynote or tracking it on some live blog coverage site but I’m still interested in finding out what was announced, so hopefully the above link will help others out there too.
A great set of videos from the joint interview between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates at the recent D: All Things Digital conference.

Macs do Windows. Well at least that’s what Boot Camp, a new beta application from Apple is supposed to allow users to do. The long awaited ability to run Windows XP on an Intel-based Mac.
I was speaking with a colleague on how I thought that this might end up helping Microsoft more in the long run, especially since most Windows XP based computers typically don’t have the same attractive form factor or design of Apple hardware. The counter-argument posed by my colleague was that the attractions are typically based on the advantages one is seeking. So if the form factor or design of Apple hardware is not a primary factor then my statement has no validity. Anyways, I’m not in a position to try Boot Camp, since inspite of my primary computer being a Power Mac G5 – it is not using an Intel processor.
Does anyone know if it’s possible to mount an NTFS partition? I’m really skeptical on whether it’ll be possible to share files between the two operating systems. Suggestions?
In typical Steve Jobs fashion, Apple announced a new Intel Mac Mini with Front Row and iLife 06. The iTunes store recently sold its 1,000,000,000 song and iPods continue to dominate the MP3 market with a 78% marketshare and finally the long awaited Apple boombox – marketed as iPod Hi-Fi.
