Apple's new SuperDrive will burn DVD's and CD's, and it comes installed on high-end power macs. In a year or so, it'll make sense to have an iMac with DV software. Of course, I'm not expecting oodles of interesting things to be done with it. Desktop publishing still has a lot of unused 'revolutionary' verve that never seems to be tapped in to.
Lots of good links at Randomwalks that I don't have time to look at. :<
