iChat VideoConferencing, Java 1.4.1, and MPC7457

Various tidbits:

  • Motorola posts further details about the MPC7457. The 7457 was previously discussed and will be introduced at 1.3GHz with 512k of L2 cache and up to 2MB of L3 cache.

  • An Apple iChat update is in the works and the next revision will introduce Video Conferencing capabilities. An Apple Video Conferencing application was first hinted at by Steve Jobs himself in April 2002 during a shareholder meeting. Microphone and Camera icons were subsequently found in iChat's resource files, further hinting at future functionality.

  • An Apple software update will be appearing on March 3rd... but details are scarce. The most likely candidate appears to be Java 1.4.1 Final which is rumored to be released on that same day, but hints at iMovie 3.0.2 have also emerged.

    Keynote 1.0.1 was released today via Software Update, providing international support.
