    Ok, here's my next question -- who still uses an offline mail app on a laptop or desktop? It feels like everyone is on some form of webmail, either personal or professional.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:23:21 PM
    Federighi: Then there's iWork. The most popular productivity suite across Macs. New design for Yosemite
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:23:40 PM
    Federighi: Cool new text effects. (that also brought lots of claps)
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:23:52 PM
    Federighi: Next there's iCloud Drive. With iCloud Drive, you can save any file in the cloud.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:23:59 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:23:59 PM
    Keynote always look great, if only because PowerPoint is such a painful throwback.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:24:06 PM
    Federighi: Also stores files from iOS devices. Can organize the info however you want.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:24:19 PM
    Federighi: If you're having to work under extreme duress, even [works on] a Windows PC
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:24:37 PM
    Federighi: Those are just some of the wonderful end user features in Yosemite. What makes Yosemite and iOS 8 so special is the way they work together
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:24:46 PM
    iCloud Drive is a step in the right direction -- people today use multiple devices, and often jump between them on the fly, and need to be able to access documents form anywhere, without worrying about versioning and sneaknetting copies.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:24:47 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:24:50 PM
    Federighi: The way they work together is something we've been focused on for years now. At the center of that is iCloud
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:24:53 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:25:03 PM
    Federighi: With Yosemite and iOS 8, all of our documents with iCloud Drive, photos, everything synced
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:25:33 PM
    Federighi: Also allow devices to communicate in proximity. With the latest Macs and iOS devices, can AirDrop between them. And play on Apple TV without connecting to any Wi-Fi network.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:25:50 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:25:50 PM
    First mention of cult fave Apple TV, in regards to direct Airplay without a Wi-Fi network.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:25:54 PM
    Federighi: The area we've really taken it over the top is something we call Continuity. It starts with Handoff. Where you can start on one device and pick up on another.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:26:23 PM
    Federighi: There's Instant Hot Spot, you can take advantage of connection on phone wihtout taking it out of your bag. Can make and receive regular telephone calls using Mac as speaker phone
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:26:25 PM
    Time for a demo
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:26:27 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:26:37 PM
    One thing I've asked Yosemite beta testers and early users about is the new easy tethering from an iPhone, seems like a real potential productivity boost to me.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:26:51 PM
    Federighi: Let's take a look at life in the world of Continuity. Tim Cook sent me a note about doubling down on secrecy at Apple.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:26:56 PM
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:27:04 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:27:11 PM
    He makes a joke about how the news today is a "shock revelation" to all of you. (there probably aren't going to be any surprises here today)
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:27:25 PM
    Even Shara laughed at the line about maintaining secrecy at Apple (after yesterday's accidental leak).
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:27:34 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:27:34 PM
    Federighi: Showing Apple Cafe menu with names of the items redacted. Increased the number of lasers on the path to the bathroom. The printer is just a shredder
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:27:40 PM
    Pretty funny
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:27:45 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:27:49 PM
    Federighi: What's really great with Continuity is I can pick up where I left off.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:28:24 PM
    Federighi is showing us how this works. Swipe up and open the item up. Can see the photos he favorited on his phone. Now he's going back into his photo library on the phone. On the iPad, it shows up automatically
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:28:37 PM
    For the record keepers, that was the first "Ok, let's try that again" moment of the presentation. (Demoing Continuity)
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:28:49 PM
    Federighi: While I'm working on my iPad, my phone can even be across the house. If I receive an SMS, I can pick it up on my iPad.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:29:13 PM
    Message about the latest rumor - "Apple 'Spaceship' an actual spaceship." He jokes that rumors are usually wrong, "but in this case, they actually nailed it."
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:29:21 PM
    Federighi: It's just magical.
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:29:23 PM
    IS it just me, or are there more in-jokes at these presentations in the Tim Cook era?
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:29:34 PM
    Federighi: I can get to my presentation as well. iCloud Drive right here in the folder. He's my presentation about secrecy at Apple.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 5:29:44 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:29:49 PM
    Federighi: Let's add my picture for controlling leaks. I can drop it right in there.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:29:56 PM
    Jokes Chief of Secrecy is Stephen Colbert
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:29:57 PM
    Note that the iMac and MacBook I noted earlier at the side of the stage were used for this demo.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 5:30:16 PM
    Federighi is making a call to Stephen Colbert through the Mac
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 5:30:16 PM
    Is this an official endorsement from Colbert?
