iLife 09 announced with the addition of three new ‘Events’

Today at the last MacWorld expo Phil Schiller started off with details on the newest installment of iLive, iLive 09. The first portion that was announced is the addition of more “events” in iPhoto such as Faces. This feature uses face recognition to identify people in photos and then pick that particular person out of photos in your album. You can also create an auto-corkboard of people in which you can then tag people to identify who they are. From there you can confirm the different people that Faces finds for you.

MacBook Air Unboxing Ceremony

I’m going to whine a little and say how dare Apple to give the world’s first unboxing of the MacBook Air to the Japanese market. Why couldn't Steve also include the unboxing of the MacBook Air as part of his presentation?

Apple TV Take 2

Apple TV Take 2

I don’t recall what the old interface looked like, but the new interface looks amazing and makes heavy use of the CoverFlow technology, in a very good way. The ability to use it without a PC is also a great feature, and it’s more power efficient that way.

MacBook Air – first impression

Alright, so, I don’t have any experience actually using a Mac, so I didn’t even bother using the software, I’ll stick to talking about the hardware. Lets start with the weight, 3 pounds sounds like a lot for something that is so thin, but I’ve had analog notebooks (as in paper) that were only marginally thinner but still weighed more.

Macworld 08: First play of the MacBook Air advert

Despite the uncontrollable salivation over the new MacBook Air ultraportable, our intrepid Macworld 08 team still managed to shoot footage of the lustworthy laptop's first advert.

 

There may not be built in WiMAX or cellular broadband, but the MacBook Air is still indecently thin - just 0.76-inches at its narrowest - respectably powered, thanks to an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU in 1.6GHz or 1.8GHz flavors, and features a gesture-sensitive touchpad that borrows from the iPhone's MultiTouch capabilities.  All in something that weighs 3lbs.
