My Predictions for MacWorld Announcements

MacWord 2004 Tomorrow is a big day for Mac enthusiasts. Steve Jobs will announce the next big things from Apple. I predict we'll get a $100 iPod (1000 songs), a 2.5 GHz Power Mac G5, and the one that'll blow everyone away - a 2 GHz PowerBook. I can dream, can't I?

In Eclipse, I have to constantly navigate between the two trees to edit tests and such.

Does this mean I like IDEA better than Eclipse? No, it simply means that I wish Eclipse had this feature, and I appreciate IDEA for adding it.
