Hell would truly freeze over if after pushing non-removable batteries in their devices that the new iPhone had a removable battery. Peoples heads would explode.

Opening a jpeg is now twice as fast! Now I need to find something to do with the one second I'll save.

quicktime gets some updates -- backend and ui
from gizmodo - "new player looks a lot like iTunes’ fullscreen view for movies, and the controls go away after a few seconds."

Re: WWDC 2009 News & Announcements

i just configured a Dell Studio 15" to try to get close to the new MBP and came up with around $1300 or $1400. the dell is DDR2 and i'm not sure about the exact specs of the screen and the CPU.

but with current prices if you're in the market for a high end laptop then an Apple machine is right around the same price point as a Dell depending on the features that you want.
