Video of Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ WWDC keynote address is now available at the Apple Quicktime site. Pretty interesting. I can’t wait to see how the Intel/Apple partnership develops. I’m not sure if Jobs is downplaying the difficulty involved in re-coding software so that it works on both PowerPC and Intel platforms. But Jobs, alongside Theo Gray from Wolfram/Mathematica fame, make it sound pretty easy. In the video, Gray said re-coding Mathematica to work on both platforms required only about two hours of time and the tweaking of about 20 lines of code.
