    Federighi: Mac in addition to letting you work in document has all available in Finder. Can also get content not on Mac. Like on iOS. can store files however oyu want with folders and tags. Sychronized automatically across all of your Macs.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:25:26 PM
    Federighi: And all of this content is also accessible fro your iOS devices via the iCloud
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:25:32 PM
    Federighi: What the heck, we're throwing in Windows too.

    Major cleanup of iCloud drive -- good idea, I find iCloud hard to use -- adding basic drive storage ability helps a lot.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:26:20 PM
    I get more questions about how/why iCloud does certain things than nearly any other topic. Esepcially about photos and galleries.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:26:41 PM
    Federighi: Next up Mail. Mail in Yosemite. Elegant new Yosemite-style UI. Reliable syncing, quick collection of mail. the basics. Along with that wanted to address fundamental problem with Mail. Want to send large attachments but get message that friend's mail can't handle large files. Mail Drop. Can choose to have it sent encrypted via iCloud and it rendezvous on the receiving end. If Mac, receive as before. If other client, link to download
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:26:47 PM
    Federighi: Attachments can be up to 5 GB in size
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:27:02 PM
    Serious question -- does anyone use a native mail client anymore? Or are we all on webmail of various types now?
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:27:19 PM
    Federighi: Next mark-up. Ever working on an email message and wishing could doodle something to get point across. With mark-up you can. Even works with PDFs. If need to sign PDF, can do it.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:27:43 PM
    Federighi: Next up Safari. We've in Yosemite been able to pack all of th epower of the Yosemite UI into this single bar. More space for your content.

    Great idea, making it easy to add written signatures. But can that get tech vendors to stop asking me to sign and fax (!)
    product loan forms back to them?
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:28:11 PM
    Federighi: May wonder what happened to favorites bar. Can bring back if want to but don't need to. In search, shows all favorites. Also great - when search, get spotlight suggestions.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:28:37 PM
    Federighi: More powerful than ever for sharing. If want to subsribe to RSS feed on site, can do right here and will show up in Safari sidebar. Can share to ppl faster than ever. Show ppl you messaged recently.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:28:57 PM
    Federighi: Safari is better than ever as well with tabs. Individual stacks for each site browing.

  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:29:05 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:29:16 PM
    Federighi: Also great with privacy. New private window. All content stays private and all other windows unaffected
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:29:52 PM
    Federighi: Great when comes to standards. WebGL. HTML premium video. enables modern macs to efficiently stream video from sites like Netflix without a plugin. Get up to 2 hours longer battery life on a MacBook Air streaming Netflix.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:30:04 PM
    Federighi: When it comes to multitab browser efficiency, Safari is unequaled.

    Interesting -- Macs come with Safari as their default browser; PCs comes with IE. I'll just say there's one of those I'll actually use, and the other is quickly replaced with Chrome. I'll let you guess which is which.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:30:36 PM
    Federighi: How about javascript, take the most complex kind. Fastest of any major browser. When it comes to typical website javascript, Safari is in a league of its own.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:30:43 PM
    Brian Kroll coming up for a Safari demo.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:30:47 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:31:08 PM
    Kroll: It's really great. When you go to a website you can really appreciate the new design. It's simpler and even more powerful.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:31:19 PM
    Kroll: Can open sidebar for instant links, etc

    Kroll. Type in search for Ansel Adams. When hit return, can go into regular old Google search. But since Ansel Adams is a common search term, have a new Spotlight search suggeston. Snippet from wikipedia or can go to Wikipedia for full post.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:32:12 PM
    Kroll: If you love tabs, no matter how many open, can smoothly scroll through them.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:32:24 PM
    Kroll: New tab view button - beautiful birds eye view of all of my open tabs.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:32:37 PM
    Too many tabs? Now Safari does horizontal tab scrolling, as well as a thumbnail tab view.

    Kroll: Sharing couldn't be easier in Safari. Click share button here and can use new recent recipients button to address it to Craig. With one click, I'm ready to send that image.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:33:17 PM
    Personally, I group my open browser
    pages so I never have more than five or six in a browser window.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:33:17 PM
    Kroll: Before I send it, I'm able to add my two cents. Feature called markup. can edit the image without ever leaving Mail.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:33:52 PM
    Kroll shows us zooming in on image and using tracpad to draw on the iage
