Apple did not offer a live webcast or satellite broadcast of this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) keynote address, presented by CEO Steve Jobs. Late on Monday Apple has posted a QuickTime webcast of the event, however, which users of QuickTime and MPEG-4 can now view on their computers.
During the keynote, Jobs offered developers a first look at Mac OS X v10.4, “Tiger,” a new version of the operating system expected to be released in the first half of 2005. The new version of Mac OS X carries more than 150 new features, including Spotlight, a new search technology; Dashboard, a “Widget” interface; and higher video quality support in iChat, thanks to QuickTime’s forthcoming support for the H.264 video codec. Jobs also introduced new aluminum-clad flat panel display, including a new 30-inch model. Have a look at his presentation on Apple’s Web site.
