Okay, I'll chime in. Coolest thing not talked about at the keynote: Apple's X11 beta. Now Cory can finally run gimp. The buzz on the show flow was good. I was working the EFF booth, which is in the 4100 section of the North Hall by the way, and people seemed very jazzed.

Cory and I were chatting about Apple taking on Microsoft with Safari and Keynote. Good luck Apple, you're going to need it. But I have to say, it's good to see Microsoft getting some prodding once in a while.

I'm still impressed that Apple can fill both sides of the Moscone Center. Linux World Expo didn't come close, even when Linux was the "It Girl" on the block.

I'm glad the rumors of a video iPod were bogus. When I read, "who wants to watch LotR on a 2 inch screen," I hoped it was false. Sure enough...I'm sure Jobs is still laughing his hiney off at all the rumor sites.

Firewire 800? Oh yeah! Bring it on! So long USB 2.0, nice knowing you...
