Live: Phil Schiller’s MacWorld 2009 keynote

Themes seem clear. 

  1. Apple is more than Steve Jobs. 
  2. The Mac dominates the creative community - the 1984 crowd and core of 2009. 
  3. Music, photo, video, and gaming fans are moving to Apple. 
  4. It's a bad economy - wrong time to introduce radical changes. 
The Apple ship is steady and coming on strong with their core strategy.

Apple's iWork Goes (Partly) Online

This, however, is not the rumored online version of iWork we were hoping for, as it only allows you to share documents online through iWork.com. After you share a document through the newly released iWork '08 desktop software, your friends and co-workers can comment and leave notes on your Keynote, Pages, or Numbers documents, though the documents themselves can't be edited online...

Missing From Macworld: Mac Mini, Steve Jobs Surprise (AAPL)

steve-jobs-hand-on-chin.jpgAs anticipated, Apple's (AAPL) last Macworld keynotewas a snoozefest. The company showed off some software and hardware updates. And the updates to iTunes -- more DRM-free songs, different price points, over-the-air downloads -- were a long time coming...

Report: Apple To Drop DRM, Hike Prices For Major-Label Songs

What will be the big news flash at Apple's final MacWorld Expo today? CNET says the company will announce that it's getting rid of DRM protection on iTunes Store music downloads. EMI already began offering higher-fidelity, DRM-free AAC files back in May 2007, after Steve Jobs said Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) would "embrace (DRM-free) in a heartbeat if the big four would license their music (that way) ... because DRMs haven't worked, and may never work, to halt music piracy"...
