quote: Actually they never went away but after Jobs died the arena for Apple FUD was greatly enlarged and the time it took for the post Jobs re-org to produce results just let the silly FUD congeal into a sort of bovine consensus: Apple has lost it's mojo. said the clueless and the iPhobic.
quote: Not from what I saw yesterday.
quote: The best thing about yesterday was how happy, relaxed and confident Apple's top team players all looked, people on top of their game in a company firing on all cylinders.
quote: iOS 7 looks great and will be on most iOS devices in a very short time frame (unlike the snails pace of Android OS upgrades in the insipid Android ecosystem) and looks like a new platform to build on for years ahead.
quote: Maverick looked great, can't wait to install it.
quote: The Mac Pro looks simply fantastic, the sort of thing only Apple could produce out of a hat at a conference focussed primarily on software.
quote: iRadio will cement and extend Apple's domination of music and further cement the superiority of Apple's digital content ecosystem.
quote: Eddie Cue (who sits on the board at Ferrari BTW) showed how the iOS domination of the auto business will deepen.
quote: iCloud services continue to expand and will do so for years to come. iWork on the web looked fantastic, who really needs Office anymore?
quote: There will be a range of new hardware introduced later this year and I expect some exciting new stuff.
quote: Google are compelled by simple business logic to ensure that all their services run, and run well, on iOS so they can't use Android exclusivity as a lever against iOS, and anyway Google are losing interest in developing Android as platform.
quote: iOS continues to be the most used platform by far with the healthiest commercial ecosystem.
quote: Yesterday just reminded me how fun it is being an Apple fan :)
quote: What I was expecting was something as big a consolidated leap over iOS 6 as the first iPhone OS was over the pre-iPhone OSes.
quote: Apple did seem to stagnate with no significant upgrades or announcements in over nine months.
quote: Yes, iOS gets distributed and installed much faster and pervasively than Android. Blame the carriers and phone developers for that, not Google.
quote: As a true workstation class machine, the new Mac Pro is limited. Yes, if rumors are true, out of the box the top of the line, build-to-order machine will be a screamer. However (and that's a HUGE "HOWEVER") it is limited in upgrade-ability.
quote: Apple's iRadio is just a defensive move. Nothing more. To say otherwise is delusional.
quote: Other than the new "Mac Pro", what, specifically, do you anticipate?
