Now talking about improvements in Snow Leopard:
3D rendering of icons
AI in page layout structure
Character recognition for multitouch - specifically Chinese characters
Safari 4 is now being shipped for all OS's including Windows
Interesting note: browser plugins are the number one cause for crashes in the OS - Safari now sandboxes plugins so that crashes don't sink OS X
Quicktime is now using hardware acceleration, ColorSync and streams over HTTP - interface is now completely minimalist, all interface components disappear
OS Desktop functionality - improvements in Stacks, Finder; Stacks are scrollable, thumbnails are more interactive (paging through documents, viewing movies)
[Expose is getting a lot of attention, has had improvements, more drag and drop functionality makes workflow much easier]
More Safari 4 demos - search history in Cover Flow (keyword searchable), tracking changes in Top Sites (multiple frequently used windows that update when things update on sites)
Quicktime demo - [WOW] now with "Trim" which is instant video editing and one-click video sharing. Demo shows a visual thumbnail timeline that allows a clip to be chosen and uploaded to any video site
Now reviewing 64 bit and Grand Central
Now talking OpenCL [this is the big stuff] - C-based, abstracted, optimized, numerically accurate GPU harnessing
Exchange support in Snow Leopard - built directly into Mail, iCal, Address Book
Live Exchange support demo; mail completely autodiscovered all Exchange info, pulled emails, folders, To Do and Notes - can search all exchange info with Spotlight, can QuickLook all Office documents in preview without having Office installed, can accept invitations and view in iCal. Search Exchange address lists via Address Book, can also schedule meetings into Exchange calendars with drag and drop of a Group in Address Book into iCal.
[All this Exchange support is GIGANTICLY HUGE for Trojan horse strategy into Microsoft IT - every user will want the ease of use that Mac delivers]
Paraphrased: "Ironic that we do not charge for Exchange support in Snow Leopard when you need to buy a product to use it for PCs"
