Interesting week of Apple news

Let’s summarize the week in Apple news so far:

  • Declared October 26, 2007, as the ship date for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, and updated all sorts of marketing material about it — including a list of its 300+ new features (an almost unheard-of summary, and the closest I’ve seen to the old TechNotes covering each new Mac OS release).
  • Increased the catalog of DRM-free music on the iTunes Store to 2 million tracks, and dropped the price to 99¢ from $1.29.
  • Announced an SDK for developing native software for the iPhone and iPod touch, due in February 2008.
