One More (More) Thing

At the risk of being called a fanboy[1], I’ll admit to watching some live coverage of Steve Jobs doing his keynote speech thingy at Apple’s WWDC yesterday. Rumours were, as always, rife. There was no surprise that the new model iPhone was announced. Some of the particulars were perhaps unexpected, but overall it looks like a nice progression with some major improvements over the [iphone-3gs-32gb-black current model], but as I’m in a two-year contract, I’ll more than likely be skipping this one and getting next year’s, which will no doubt be even fancier.

But there were more rumours. The expected new Mac Mini wasn’t announced, and it looks like the muttered about Magic Touch tablet control thingy may be mythical. But one thing that was more expected than most was a new version of Apple’s Safari web browser. But the Steve had nothing to say about it…

However, while I was asleep, Apple announced and released it. Quite apart from being allegedly faster and with more HTML5 goodness, the new version supports Firefox-like extensions, which might just be enough to make me give it another try…

[1] But not “fanboi”, please. Anyone who calls anyone that needs to be slapped with a very large wet fish. Possibly a large and hungry shark…
