Steve Jobs is on stage in San Francisco, reality-distorting the latest and greatest Apple stuff. I'm in (dark, rainy) Glasgow, watching live text feeds from the presentation (MacRumors wins over MacScoop, so far).
Jobs is introducing the annual update to the 'iLife' software suite, of iPhoto, iTunes, iMovie, iDVD, and GarageBand. The new version of the latter finally includes podcasting tools, including the distinctly-nifty ability to record remote interviews over iChatAV. According to MacRumors, Jobs started recording a demonstration podcast:
"Hi, I'm Steve, welcome to my podcast of super-secret Apple rumors." Oh, very droll. But then he rubs it in; "I've got some pretty good sources in Apple."
Smug. Funny, but smug.
