…The Swag Bag winner has been announced?

The Swag Bag

And the winner is…

wendy_q420

Congratulations!

Just to clarify my methods, I put each name that entered the contest into an Excel spreadsheet (there were 6 names) in the order that they commented. (stephen first, superdude4agze second, etc.)

Then, I created a formula to randomly pick a number between 1 and 7 (1.00->6.99). The formula was RAND()*(7-1) 1. The number that it came up with was 4.1001456. Thus, since the whole digit was 4, wendy_q420 was the winner, as she was the fourth person to comment.

If anyone sees any fault with the above logic, please let me know, and I’ll draw again. Otherwise, keep an eye out for the next Swag Bag giveaway!

…Apple is updating?

Boom!

iMac

Today, during the Apple summer event, the Steve announced a new iMac line, featuring lots of glass and aluminum, as well as some beefed up specs.

Keyboard

Along with this new iMac line, the Steve also introducing a new, matching wireless keyboard that’s plenty slim and plenty sexy.

iLife

On the software side of things, the Steve introduced iLife ’08, with the usual slew of updates.

iPhoto gets events, giving you a new way to organize your photos.

iMovie gets added, which is supposed to do for video what iPhoto has done for photos.

iWeb gets enhanced, including Google integration (Anyone else hoping for a partnership?)

iDVD gets a nudge up, but not much.

GarageBand also gets improved, though again, nothing substantial.

To go along with the new iLife features, the Steve also introduced an update to .Mac. Now sharing photos and movies with friends and family is even easier. Plus, there’s iPhone integration with a real “Web 2.0” feel. – Yeah, the Steve actually said “Web 2.0”.

What about for the working world?

Don’t worry, the Steve has you covered as well.

iWork

iWork ’08 saw the usual bump in featuring, plus the addition of Numbers, Apple’s long awaited spreadsheet program. It’s like Excel, only Applefied.

And that’s it. No one more thing. Steve, why no iPod? Must you make us wait? All I’ve got to say is that the next iPod better launch rockets at the push of a touch screen button. That’s right, rockets.
