WWDC Keynote LIVE: Microsoft Exchange and Snow Leopard

exchange“We’ve decided to build Microsoft Exchange support into Snow Leopard,” says Serlet to much applause. A quick demo of this new feature shows set-up is extraordinarily easy. Corporate Exchange accounts are auto-discovered and searchable via Leopard technologies — regardless of whether a user has Microsoft Office installed on their local machine. iCal and Address Book offers integrated views of Exchange events and contacts and local events and contacts. The integration seems very slick and easy. It also supports Exchange’s location and availability features. Serlet points out that Microsoft (MSFT) charges for Exchange support, Apple (AAPL) and Snow Leopard will provide it for free.

Price? Leopard arrived at market at $129. Snow Leopard will be just $29 for Leopard users. Massive applause. Developer preview available today. The OS will ship in September.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
