Thoughts on WWDC07 keynote announcements / rumours

Rumours of iTunes movie rentals

If this turns out to be true then it means the FairPlay DRM scheme must now have the ability to do time-limited control of playback capabilities. This will definitely make a good addition for those with an AppleTV. If this story is true then the BBC iPlayer team should go talk to Apple right now!

Safari for Windows

Wow, I hadn't thought about this, but seeing as Adobe's Apollo (now known as AIR) initiative uses WebKit and runs cross-platform then it makes sense that a native Windows version of Safari would be possible. This will be very handy for web developers 'stuck' on Windows! It's available now as a beta for OSX and Windows.

OSX 10.5 Leopard preview

Great looking set of features in there, I'm really liking the changes to the look and feel of the user interface. The iTunes-esque Finder looks to be a good update, I'm wondering how well those who really hate the current finder will take to this, will it be an improvement or not? I've not seen any concrete evidence that the Finder has been substantially rewritten, will this be the end of spinning beachballs when network volumes disappear?
