Despite a respectable effort by Sony to build hype around its Vaio R505 laptop in a special “test drive” in front of Grand Central Station here in New York, Apple’s Titanium stole the show again — and it didn’t even have to show up.
In contrast to his usual secrecy, Jobs is up-front in a press release about Apple Expo Paris: no new hardware will be introduced. “My keynote will focus on Mac OS X v10.1, the super-fast new version of Mac OS X, and our revolutionary new iDVD 2 software, which lets users create their own custom DVDs that can be played on consumer DVD players,” says Jobs. “This has been an incredible new product year for Apple, so we don?t plan to launch any new hardware products in Paris this year.”

I just received my PowerBook power adapter replacement and basically noticed the same observations as everyone else. However, I’m not sure I want to make the swap. My old power adapter came with my VST charger and that’s basically what it does unless I travel and then it goes with me, because it is a much better adapter to pack than the yo-yo. Ever try to wrap the yo-yo’s power cord around it?
