GeekStuff: Steve Jobs Keynote

If you have not watched Steve Jobs' Keynote at WWDC, you oughta see it.

To me, it's all about SpotLight. Somewhere in the middle of that feed, he goes over the Spotlight demo, see if u can skip to it. Everything else is very interesting but to your average audience, the Spotlight demo is the thing that'll floor you.

As a web applications developer, Apple has done a few things to make my life easier:
  • a unix operating system that plays very nicely with java

  • Exposé lets me find any window I need. I'm very-much a multi-tasker. It's really cool.

  • And now, Spotlight. Forget folders, find anything about anything on your computer, instantly, dynamically. This is why you should watch the keynote, the demo of this feature is very impressive and will literally revolutionize the way you compute.

Just watch the keynote, you'll understand.
