Macworld SF '02

Steve Jobs gave the Keynote at Macworld, which was largely about OS X. Apple released iPhoto, a free software download for OS X. iPhoto provides an easy way to import, edit, and print images from USB digital cameras. Adobe announced most of their products are now OS X-native. Although Adobe's Photoshop is not X ready, we were able to get a sneak peak at a version still in development. The next release of Photoshop will feature spellchecker and a find & replace tool. Palm has desktop software in Beta available for download.

Apple also made some hardware announcements. They added a 14.1" iBook to the line and redesigned the iMac, incorporating a built-in flat panel and G4 processor.
