Eric Savitz of Tech Trader Daily is live blogging MacWorld. Eric summarizes :
Stock update: -$7.04, or 3.94%, at $171.74.
One final note: clearly, the Street was waiting for the “one more thing,” maybe a 3G iPhone, or something else surprising. But Apple didn’t deliver it, and the stock’s slide has picked up steam since the keynote ended; AAPL is now down $9.50, or 5.3%, at $169.28. All eyes now turn to next week’s earnings report.
My take love the small form factor of AIR. Outside of the 3G phone I think that the Apple TV Take Two is the most interesting.
Besides Eric my favorite live blog coverage from Macworld is:
Coverage of the MacBook Air
Apple MacBook Air – Engadget
Details on the MacBook Air: digg_url = ‘http://digg.com/apple/The_Macbook_Air’;
Apple just announced the .16-inch thin MacBook Air — a laptop so thin it fits in a manila envelope. The new machine features a full-size keyboard and LED-backlit 13.3-inch display with built-in iSight, and the new larger trackpad supports multi-touch gestures. Just like the iPhone, you’ll be able to pan around, pinch to zoom, and rotate with two fingers, and move windows with a flick. Apple got the size down by using the same 1.8-inch 80GB drive that’s in the iPod classic, but you’ll be able to order a 64GB SSD as an option. The Air eschews optical media, but there’s a separate external you can snag for $99 and Apple’s also announced a feature called Remote Disk that’ll let the Air get data off the optical drive in any PC or Mac running the Remote Disk software. Pricing starts at $1799, and the Air will be shipping in two weeks.
