The WWDC Live Thread


#1

Who’s watching the live stream? 3am is probably a bit early for me, but I won’t be surprised if I just happen to wake up then :smile:


#2

I’ll be awake, affects my job after all :wink: I highly doubt that I’ll get any sleep pre-keynote either. Tomorrow will be rough.


#3

I would like to be awake for it though I am rather skeptical that apple’s servers will be able to handle the load. Might do what I have done for the last couple of years and ignore the internet completely until I have watched the podcast first :smile:


#4

I was all excited that I’d get to see it live at a reasonable hour (18:00 in London!) but then remembered that I have a dinner on tonight. Boo! Boo hiss boo!


#5

They have every other year. Typically they’ll use Akamai to cache the stream here in Australia anyway, so there shouldn’t be any issues.

Priorities man!


#6

5am over here so a bit more reasonable. Unfortunately it will probably only start ramping up by the time I have to jump in the car to get to work, so I’ll miss the good bits I imagine.


#7

If there are betas available for OS X and iOS I will probably install them ASAP.


#8

I’ll be around. Been a while since Apple events, no?


#9

Mac OS X 10.10: Sierra?

Gives credence to the “Syrah” codename. The mountain shown is the glorious Half Dome, a place on my bucket list.


#10

Spoilers, man!


#11

God damn, they’ve been busy!!

The stuff I’m most excited about, in no particular order:

  • iOS Extensibility: 1Password in Safari anyone?!
  • TouchID: again, 1Password integration would be awesome
  • Continuity is brilliant, especially for someone with a work and personal phone.
  • iCloud Drive/OneDrive in one spot! I might even ditch dropbox.
  • Photos/iCloud Photos: it looks like they’ve actually got it right this time
  • Spotlight: I’ve used Alfred for ages, I’m ditching it with Yosemite. I think they’ve brought the power of Siri to OS X without needing to talk to the Mac. And I love that it’s in iOS as well!
