It was a very different show than any I had been to before. Fewer companies came out. Despite this fact, people are really optimistic about Apple’s future. I think that they are doing what needs to be done for them to succeed, but that is no guarantee of success. Yesterday’s announced profit of $101 million doesn’t hurt matters much.
I learned some useful things, and discovered Wootech Voyager, an interesting Filemaker Pro based Web integration environment. I also put a lot of names with faces.
I think the personal highlight for me was the time I got to spend with my brother. Also, my parents took the train in and we had dinner. Since I haven’t been very close with them, this was a huge step in the right direction.
There are tons of things I need to get up here, but this week is crazy.
Netscape posted the 4.5 version of their browser. It contains a smart browsing set of features. This I will elaborate on, but I need to find out how I get their Bump keyword for my site.
