This year’s WWDC “Stevenote” is over. Among the more notable points:

  • Tiger is a fully 64-bit OS… which is gonna allow the PowerMac G5’s to move so fast that they catch fire.
  • “Expose for Widgets”, which is super similar to Konfabulator
  • “Spotlight” which sounds an awful lot like the planned database-style search integration in Longhorn.
  • 30-inch (wipe off your drool) displays
  • RSS integration in Safari

I was able to keep up with the play-by-play via Mac Minute, Apple-X, and Mac Update. You can read more about Tiger from Apple.com.

Lastly, I was able to get copies of these images before they got pulled from the MacMinute.com site. They’re awfully clever.
