iPhone quip o’ the day, plus more from Macworld

From Victor Allen at Juxt Interactive: "I’m going to wait for the iPhone Shuffle. You just clip it to your ear and call people at random."  Hah!

Hopefully I’ll get to walk the floor at Macworld today. I’m excited that the new AirPort base station can hook up to a hard drive to enable wireless backup, though I’m annoyed that it evidently doesn’t support the Apple-developed (and JNack-purchased) Firewire standard. Adobe-wise at the show,

  • Russell Brown is showing good bits from Photoshop CS3 in the Adobe theater
  • Tim Brook notes that the company is now shipping Flex Builder for the Mac
  • Chad Siegel and I will be showing Photoshop CS3 beta and giving an InDesign CS3 sneak at the Apple store at 3pm today
  • Finally, I don’t know what all will be shown from the upcoming video Production Studio, but I caught a 20-minute demo from Bob Donlon yesterday, and I can tell you hands-down it was stupid cool. Apparently there will be some demos at the Adobe booth; I’ll try to post details on timing if possible. If you care about digital video at all, or just about beautifully integrated Mac software, you’ll want to check ’em out.

    Flex Builder for the Mac is the best news of the year so far!
    By now going to check it out Flex 2 SDK…

    I’m wondering do you see Apple’s UI consistency requirements across all applications that run OS X as a limiting factor in the future assuming that windows CS UI will continue to be more advanced…
    [I don’t see Apple UI guidelines as limiting. It’ll be interesting to see, though, whether the Mac & Windows OSes converge or diverge. The latter would obviously make it harder to be consistent across platforms. –J]

    I was talking more about creating similar experience on both platforms…

    John, I well know InDesign isn’t your department, but I am a very devoted InDesign user who’s mighty eager to learn about what’s coming in ID CS3 — so I hope you’ll soon be able to nudge, nudge, wink, wink at us with some ID news. Pretty please? :-)
    [Ah, I’m afraid we’re limited to showing what’s already been sneaked (snuck?). I’d try a little Googling for “InDesign CS3.” –J.]
