1:10 am Steve Jobs announces Time Capsule, sort of like a hard drive that comes with built in Airport Express. You can sync your Macs wirelessly via Time Machine.
1:31 am iPhone now has maps with locations. Ok… I think this is also the same facial expression I had when he announced Office 2008 earlier. I forgot to take a shot.
1:35 am More iPhone stuff. Geez. I so can’t relate. Please launch the iPhone in Asia already, Steve. iPod touch gets updated. OK .. god I hope he reveals something more than this crap.
1:39 am iTunes Movie Rentals. OK so they did a Netflix. Still can’t relate as the iTunes store isn’t available here in the Philippines. Where’s my pillow….
1:44 am “What’s it going to cost? To rent a library title will cost $2.99 — new release? $3.99” Big applause. [Engadget]. Steve, in Manila, our movies cost USD 1.00 and its yours forever. At least now, the Apple TV gets more useful. You can rent movies with that thing.
2:01 am Booring .Mac stuff. Nice that they did some Apple TV improvements though. Perfect time for a bathroom break. Now its on to the more interesting stuff.
2:13 am Actual facial expression cannot convey how I really feel. So I’m using this light tunnel effect to make up for the excitement that I cannot seem to replicate. Apple launches the MacBook Air.

2:28 am “You’ll see in the finder called Remote Disc — it will show you all the Macs and PCs that have some special software on them, and you can pick one of those machines and ask to borrow its optical drive … Once they’ve accepted your request you can see what’s on their optical drive — a PC can read a Mac disc and send it wirelessly over to your MBA and it’s just as if you had a local optical drive. It’s amazing … for $1799” [Engadget] — Good golly, there’s already a Wikipedia entry for the MacBook Air and the conference isn’t over yet.
