On Monday evening after an exhausting day (physically, mentally, and emotionally), I plunked myself down on the sofa with my MacBook and clicked on the link so I could watch the Apple WWDC 2009 Keynote address. Along with many other Mac lovers, I've been waiting with bated breath to learn what Apple had up its sleeve this June. I watched the full two hours of the keynote, and I wasn't disappointed.
I have a first generation iPhone, and I wanted to know about the new operating system (3.0 coming June 17th) as well as the third generation iPhone (available June 19th). Oh my. I'm so glad I didn't upgrade last year. The new iPhone 3G S was worth waiting for. But even saying that, I believe the software upgrade is going to improve both first and second generation iPhones a lot. Perks galore.
Snow Leopard (the next generation of OS X) debuts in September. It has a lovely price tag. Only $29 for a single and $49 for a family pack. Snow Leopard i's mostly about performance, higher speeds, etc. I was impressed and look forward to getting it onto my Macs. Leopard is already so terrific and Snow Leopard's a step up from there.
And while I am not in the market for a new MacBook at present, the new lineup of MacBook Pro's, which now includes the 13" unibody, is pretty sweet. And while they were updating with SD card slots and the 13" got the 800 Firewire and all the line got a speed bump, the price went down. Good for Apple!!!
Do I sound like an Apple sales rep? Maybe I do. But the truth is, I am just a very happy customer who after many years of trying out all kinds of products (phones, computers, laptops, Windows, software, etc.) discovered Apple products and would never go back to the old way of doing things again. There really is a better way.
