Today at Macworld Steve Jobs unveiled a few new treats for us. I am going to list the announcements I feel were important and give you my thoughts on them. Sadly, the iBacon was not mentioned, maybe next year.

Time Capsule (New Product) – It’s just an external hard drive with Wi-Fi. Don’t get me wrong this is a neat idea, but I think I will just stick with my cheaper USB Hard Drive.

Apple TV (Update) – Finally you don’t need to get up off the couch to buy a new movie on iTunes. The new Apple TV also has more storage. I am still not sure if this will help make this a product something people would actually want. I know I’m still not getting one.

iTunes Movie Rentals (Update) – You can now pay 3.99 to watch a new release or 2.99 for an old one. This is a nice idea and I bet Netflix is flinching a little.

Macbook Air (New Product) – This was the big announcement? It might just be me but I am not impressed with a thin laptop. One thing I do like about it though is that the track pad uses multi-touch. If you’ve used an iPod Touch you know what I am talking about.

There was also a new update to the iPhone and Touch. The only bad news is Apple is going to charge for new software for iPod Touch. I don’t know if I like that, but I bet this is something that will not last long. With them so easy to be hacked I can’t see people buying software for them.

Let me know your thoughts on the Macworld Keynote.

    Yea man, I’ve with you on the Ipod software update and having to pay for it. I actually just wrote about that on echoflip.com if you want to check it out.

    Yeah, I still dont know why Apple will not let 3rd Party software be on the touch and iphone. I guess they feel if blackbarry can get away with it why cant they.

  4. The wait is over, my bacon loving friend. A friend of mine just released iBacon: a game you’ll flip over for the iPhone and iPod touch! As a fellow bacon lover, I think you’ll find this to be a delicious (and nutritious) discovery! Enjoy…
