Cool product intros today in order of coolness:
- $1000 MacBook is polycarbonate but with glass LED screen and 7 hour battery. Man, what else makes sense to get
- Magic Mouse now has a multitouch interface like the iPod Touch and iPhone. Cool gestures
- iMac 27″ now has the Intel i5 which of course has 4 cores (shouldn’t it be the i4???). It is a desktop processor. Also, the 27″ can also be a monitor for an Macbook now as well. So great as a desktop.
- Mac mini can be a real server with 2x500GB drives
The only real miss here is a minor update to the Time Capsule. Without a removable drive or a replaceable power supply the thing is pretty much useless.
Apple’s total market capitalization is currently approximately $186 billion, placing the company behind only Exxon Mobil, Microsoft, and Wal-Mart in market cap rankings of American companies
