I sat down over the weekend and watched the keynote video. I also read a lot more of the reviews and media coverage of the keynote and have thought a bit more about it. I think the pundits (myself included) are missing the point. Granted most of the people reading this Blog have already figured out how to make a download folder or discovered great Tiger Applications like Path Finder to give us much of the promised future Leopard features. However, there are many Mac users, my daughter and wife among them, who will not do any of that stuff until Apple hands it to them, through OS X, on a silver platter. At that point we geeky folks will figure out some new hack to make it even more functional.
The other thing that occurred to me is that the next time Steve Jobs gives a keynote, I’m going to have a drinking game where you take a shot every time he says the word “cool”.
