Little ticked off that I am going to have to give up my beloved Android 

(Note 3) for a new iPhone this fall.

 

Hopefully the rumors of a larger screen are true.  I am positive they are.

 

The handoff and continuity features -- including making phone calls from

my desktop -- are so enticing that I'm going to need an OS phone device.

Great stuff, but a total disappointment for those of us hoping for hardware announcements.

That was bananas! Absolutely huge! Huge iCloud and photo stream upgrade. Family app sharing. Intriguing unifications of mobile and desktop. Nice stuff.

But iOS. WTF! Extensions. Metal. Swift. Hey Siri. iCloud kit. TouchID. Those cut to the heart of competition and promise hugely requested features and amazing unanticipated new apps to come.

On top of that, Apple threw a hug vat of spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks. Healthbook. Home automation. Will they work? Does anyone care? We're going to find out!


On the rumor mill front: they got it wrong on multitasking. Bet it comes next year. And they were oblivious to Swift. Which is a BFD.

I'm a hack, a dabbler, a programmer wannabe. And I want to try out Swift and Xcode. It looks as awesome as NeXT and Toolkit were when I did that as a student programmer.

I'm personally excited about:
Keyboards
Hey Siri
Unified photos! Squee!
Family sharing of photos
Paying Apple $0.99 per month to store my photos ;)
