QuickTime 4 Planned For Keynote?
Watching through Steve Jobs's keynote presentation at MacWorld, we found a spot that is clearly labeled QuickTime 4. It came during the part of the presentation dealing with FireWire when Mr. Jobs was showing streaming video.

Dave Hamilton, The Mac Observer's Business Manager, had the opportunity to ask Apple's Press booth what this was about. Both Apple reps vehemently denied there was any mention of QT4 in the presentation and that we were mistaken (we weren't). Other Apple people we approached were equally tight lipped and no one would tell us why a QT4 announcement had been pulled from the presentation.

The Mac Observer Spin: Our guess is that a minor problem or other issue such as licensing agreements kept Apple from mentioning it. This is pure speculation, but it is also possible that Mr. Jobs's decided he wanted to take another opportunity to make the QT4 announcement as there was already enough for his speech this week.
