Macworld NY 2002 Keynote Address attendees were enthusiastic about most of Jobs's announcements. QuickTime 6, iTunes, Jaguar, Junk Mail Filter, and many more products elicited positive response from the audience. But when Jobs got around to announcing the discontinuation of free iTools, to be replaced with the $100/year .mac service, audience participation dragged to a halt. Amidst the silence, one could hear clapping from a joyful Avie Tevanian, head of Apple’s Software Engineering group and former VP of Engineering at NeXT. He was either excited about the products or his bonus. Or the fact that he gets a free .mac account anyway.
