So, the Cupertino kids have been getting busy again, with Apple launching a raft of shiny new tech goodness on Tuesday afternoon. You can watch Steve Jobs wowing the fanboys on this film of his keynote speech.
They’ve launched a super slim laptop, a new and improved version of Apple’s set top box for renting movies directly to your TV, added Mail and Maps to the iPod Touch, added movie rentals on iTunes, and also launched Time Capsule, a new external hard drive which plays nicely with the latest version of OS X.
We were most happy to see the updated iPhone firmware (v.1.1.3), which means that you can now customise the home screen on your iPhone. About time really. You can now ditch the applications you don’t use (or at least slide them across to a second home screen), and create icons for your favourite web pages.
Usually when you do this, you just get a screengrab of whichever webpage you’re bookmarking (like The Guardian one in the picture above), but brilliantly, Typepad, who host our blog, have also made it possible for bloggers to create customised icons for their blog, so that you get a proper smart’n'shiny icon.
So, if you’re an iPhone user and a We Made This reader, you can go ahead and stick us on your homescreen without worrying about it looking all messy. Hoorah for tech goodness!
