Apple posts Macworld 2008 keynote streamLiving up to its promise from its last-minute site update, Apple on Tuesday evening posted the streaming QuickTime feed of its Macworld San Francisco 2008 keynote speech by company chief Steve Jobs.
The announcement saw the release of the MacBook Air subnotebook, iTunes Movie Rentals with new Apple TV software with HD video support, and its new Time Capsule hybrid router and network backup device.
Apple also released the iPhone 1.1.3 update with a customizable home screen, triangulated positioning in Google Maps, and multi-recipient SMS text messaging.
