WWDC

Well, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I’m going to ramble about technology for a minute (something I seem to be able to do any minute of any day). Yesterday, Apple announced the next major release of Mac OS X (codenamed "Panther") that is due out by year’s end, a new version of iChat that does audio and video chats, a new Apple-made monitor-mounted camera called iSight, and a bunch of other stuff. I’m quite excited about it. I’m at WWDC today so I took a few pictures. Enjoy!

  1. I was playing around with the iSight tonight. We were able to get around 9 fps over wired ethernet, 4 fps over 802.11b. I was able to do an audio conference with someone in Washington (Hi Evan) over my 128 kbps cellular data connection! I was able to send my video to someone without the iSight using a DSL line at a local bakery in San Francisco. It will be interesting to see how this product changes communication over longer distances. I can already imagine a new “The Little iSight / iChat AV Book: How to comb your hair and look good for the VP’s on the other end of the wire.”

  2. Well, when you’re @ WWDC, you’re really supposed to be going to sessions, not taking pictures. 🙂 Was I on some kind of scavenger hunt or something?
