iPhoto 4 first-try report

After installing iPhoto 4, the application updates your photo archive, which can take quite a while, depending on the amount and size of images you have archived. After that, you'll be surprised at the speed. Well, I was, at least. The new options are nice additions, but it seems mostly evolutionary than revolutionary. Most features are known from iTunes (sharing options, smart albums), so they feel quite natural, which is a good thing. But the most important thing about this release is quite certainly the fantastic speed of the application. On an iBook G3/800, iPhoto rocks. No complaints. Have a faster Mac? You'll be happy.

The 20 Macs that mattered most...

WIRED is covering them with 20 little stories. Some of you might be too young to have even been there, when the first, the 128K Macintosh, was released. But it's a good read and a little bit of nostalgy for all of us, how ever old or young we are... ;-)
