WWDC

June 7th, 2011

Well, no touch-screen Macs. Could come in the future, though–they tend to limit the keynotes to fill 2 hours, no more, and this one was full.

Lion, a full OS upgrade, for $30, for up to 5 machines. I’d love to see Microsoft match that.

MobileMe now defunct. Um, do I get a prorated refund?

Looks like there are so many smaller features to both OS X and iOS geared towards the general user experience, it’ll take a while to digest it all. Autosave, Versions, and Resume should make using apps a smoother experience. The Cloud for photos could be a nice way to collect and sift/sort through photos–depends on how they set it up and how flexible it is.

Too much for this late….

    >Um, do I get a prorated refund?

    I got billed for another year literally last night. You can get a refund within 45 days of billing, otherwise they say to contact them.

    $30 upgrade cycles is brilliant. I’ve been running Lion for a month or so now and it’s pretty nice. Didn’t think it was this close to shipping but we’ll see.

    With $30 upgrades every developer can target 10.7, since people too chintzy to upgrade their OS isn’t going to have the money to buy apps either.

    Problem is that 10.7 actually cuts out the first generation x86 machines, those that weren’t 64-bit compatible. My mom’s iMac is one of those.
