Update: Während man bei Apple DE kurzzeitig davon überzeugt war, "Der neue PowerBooks" seien heute erschienen, verriet ein Apple Mitarbeiter gegenüber CNET ein wenig mehr zum Sudden Motion Sensor: "It is patent-pending technology," said David Russell, a senior director in Apple's portable and wireless unit. Russell said Apple incorporated the technology into the motherboard of all the PowerBooks, meaning Apple can use hard drives from a variety of makers. Russell declined to say whether Apple might look to add similar technology to its iPods, which also use hard drives for storage." Und zum PowerBook G5 gabs auch was zu zitieren: "It is fair to say that incorporating a G5 into a notebook as thin and light as the PowerBook is extremely difficult," said David Moody, Apple's vice president of worldwide Mac product marketing, in an interview."
Glenn Fleishman trägt noch etwas zu Bluetooth 2.0 bei: "which adds a 3 Mbps flavor to Bluetooth that an Apple executive told me in an interview today should make it possible for the highest-quality music streaming to Bluetooth headphones among other devices that they expect will incorporate the new technology. This new flavor of Bluetooth is called Enhanced Data Rate (EDR)."
