Apple's World-Wide Developer's Convention is a bit of a weird event; it's not supposed to be a 'big' Apple occasion, in the sense of the MacWorld keynotes in January. As the name suggests, it's about developers; showing them the Next Big Thing, and more importantly, how to write code for it. But we still don't have Leopard. And we've been promised new, secret, fabulous features that Apple couldn't release in fear of Microsoft copying them again…and those features are? ... Window reflections. (Okay, okay, it's a bit more than that. The Stacks idea is a good one, though I worry about how usable they'll be if you don't have the Dock on the bottom of the screen, And I imagine the reflections are probably cheap in computer-time thanks to CoreAnimation) The big, big news is that, after five revisions, they've finally fixed Finder! *cue ticker-tape parade*. The new idea for Finder? ALL COVER FLOW, ALL THE TIME! That and iTunes. Still, it'll probably be reasonably speedy, and the saved searches look wonderful. The rest…well, something of a disappointment. Most of the features were revealed back in January, so there wasn't anything new… … oh. Except for Safari for Windows. I think most of the crowd did an audible double-take at that. I'll be downloading it at work tomorrow, but wow. I get the sense it's more for helping people develop iPhone applications in the Microsoft world, but releasing a browser for Windows? What's next, porting iWork for Vista?
