Great Mac-buying advice from the guys at Macword. There definitely are still a lot of people out there who seem to think you need a Mac Pro or Macbook Pro for even moderately heavy use, such as that a typical web designer does. In reality, a Macbook or iMac is plenty of computer for 90% of users out there. General rule: unless you’re a hardcore Mac gamer or doing professional-level video editing or 3D modeling, you probably don’t need a pro-level machine.
Gruber and Cabel Sasser get together after the keynote for an hour-long chat about the iPhone and other Apple goodness. By the way, if you’ve never heard Cabel speak live, you’ve got to see this guy. He’s incredibly exuberant and always laughing about something. I find him incredibly entertaining. And Gruber’s not bad, either. :)
Mike D. rolls out several AppleMacWorld predictions, most of which make a lot of sense. But the most interesting thing in the blog post, for me, was this little tangent: “I’m not a good person to ask about the Blu-Ray/HD-DVD debate. I think by the time it’s all decided, we’ll be doing most of our stuff over IP anyway.” That’s a damn good point, and something I’d never really thought of.
