We’re overflowing with news this week, including the release of our “Take Control of Troubleshooting Your Mac” book, TidBITS staffers being honored in the MacTech 25, the iPhone sidestepping a bullet in the form of a patent ruling against Qualcomm, the release of enhancements to the MacBook Pro line, a surprise release of Adobe GoLive 9, Typinator 2.0 adding auto-correction capabilities, NetNewsWire 3.0 sporting better integration with Apple applications, a new remote-control option for Macs, and a trio of announcements about running Windows on a Mac. But despite all that, the big news comes from San Francisco, where Steve Jobs held court at the WWDC keynote, showing off Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, Safari for Windows (gasp!), and how developers can write applications for the iPhone.
