Thoughtful, detailed coverage of everything Apple for 34 years
and the TidBITS Content Network for Apple professionals
Show full articles


Apple may be pulling out of Macworld Expo, but we’ve found ourselves with a surfeit of coverage of the show, so much so that this issue restricts itself to our coverage of the keynote announcements and other standard features. A special issue, later this week, will contain our post-Macworld wrap-up content. So read on for what we know of the iLife ’09 and iWork ’09 updates, what we thought of Phil Schiller’s keynote, an overview of the upcoming 17-inch MacBook Pro, and details about the changes to the iTunes Store that make all songs DRM-free (but with variable pricing). In followup news from a previous article, Glenn Fleishman notes a resolution to a recent Quicken problem with online banking. In the TidBITS Watchlist, we glance at the releases of WireTap Studio 1.0.7, Things 1.0, PDF Shrink 4.5, CheckUp 2.0, and FileMaker Pro 10.0.

This week's discussions focus on Macworld Expo, namely what the future holds and how Apple is counting the exposure the event generates. Also talked about are problems viewing PDF files in Safari, removable volumes not appearing in the Finder, and whether the service should be rolled into MobileMe instead of being a standalone paid product.
