While we have been at the ESRI Plenary, Steve Jobs took stage up north and introduced a couple of little things. I am pretty excited about the new Mac Pro which is based on the new Core 2 Duo chips including the high-end dual chip (4 cores total) option. Check out Engadget’s cover for details on MacOS 10.5…it looks pretty good.
Update: My bad, there is only a dual-chip option…no single processors for the Mac Pro
James is doing a great job of giving a real-time discussion of the second plenary session. They are essentially covering everything in the order on ESRI’s What’s Coming in ArcGIS 9.2 page. If you aren’t here check out these two resources.
I have to say that while Jack talks about the updates in 9.2, he speaks softly, but you just start to get jazzed as you see more. And as Geometrybag said:
6. Getting really excited about lots of cool new features and products, then getting home and realising that I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t actually use any of it in real projects for another two years.
Of course, so far we only have to wait 2 months.
Bernie is now showing off ArcGIS Explorer and I have to say that I would really like to have access to AGE for my World Regions class in the fall…ahhh, the agony of waiting 🙂
I will leave the great summaries of what folks have to say to James and others. We will try to corner a few folks for interviews and maybe comment on some of blog posts that come out during this morning.
The countdown is nearing zero…have a good morning 🙂
