Steve Jobs made some more announcements this week, including a high def 30 inch flat screen monitor, and yet another upgrade to OS X. It doesn’t bother me to upgrade an operating system frequently. I am, after all, a Linux nut. But if it costs the users another $100 per upgrade, I’ll be annoyed for them. It’s not due out until 2005 and won’t break pre-existing apps, so it’s not too bad.
Unlike its smaller siblings, the new screen will work only with Power Macs equipped with a new $600 GeForce video card from nVidia that features dual DVI outputs — one for each half of the 2,560 by 1,600, 4.1 million-pixel screen.
Well, it’ll be nice for upscale graphics companies, at least.
