new-apple-display.jpgThis year's keynote was not all that entriguing, but there were three things that I'm excited about.

1. New Displays - This had been rumored for a couple weeks and I was eagerly waiting, as I just bought a new G5. The new displays are beautiful, but the prices did not change. I suppose I can't complain, but it would have been nice if the prices had come down. I'll be getting a 20".

2. RSS Integrated into Safari - Tiger, or OS X.4, will come out in the 1st half of 2005 and Safari 2.0, with RSS integration, will be a part of it. From what I've seen, it looks great. I don't know if it will be able to replace NetNewsWire, but this video from Apple looks very impressive.

3. Dashboard - Essentially, Apple has bundled Konfabulator into Tiger. I have played with Konfabulator but there weren't enough useful widgets. Hopefully Apple will do it right. I'm just hoping that this cannibalization of a third party product will do good and not evil.
