This short video was used to open the Apple keynote address at the World Wide Developers Conference yesterday. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the message since.
This is definitely a thought process in the right direction for iOS. Something’s need to evolve to cure the inertia of iOS & keep iPhone/iPod/iPad users intrigued and satisfied with their devices.
Functionality is great, but variety is the spice of life, & change is inevitable
There’s something sacred about the unboxing of a new Apple gadget. After much thought, and by “much” I mean the few days we’ve had since the WWDC keynote, I decided to use the morning of my day off to go purchase a new MacBook.
My previous MacBook is five years old now. The battery is actually falling out of the bottom and with the OS X Mountain Lion coming out in a little under a month, I decided to just go ahead with the upgrade. It wasn’t an easy decision because I’ve lately been using my iPad as my primary device around home, but with my intention to begin writing more and my desire to perhaps use this as a hybrid work/personal machine, it just makes sense … sort of :)
I’ve already watched it twice. I think it might be time for a new computer.
