    So far, it seems like there's a lot o little tweaks designed to make apps look/feel more consistent
    .
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:18:05 PM
    Federighi: Next, let's talk about notification center. ADopts the dark translucent material, precise type of Yosemite. Has a new today view. Get a look at calendar, reminders, weather and more.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:18:26 PM
    Federighi: More importantly, can extend teh content of today view. Can add app info based on what you want. That is notification center.

    Federighi: Next up. Spotlight. Spotlight has always been a super fast way to launch applications and find content local on map. Yosemite. When click magnifying glass, get bar right in middle of display.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:19:14 PM
    Federighi: In addition to sources local to Mac, we also tap into sources on the Internet. Can get news feed, info from Wikipedia, even Maps.

    Moving search front-and-center is interesting -- Windows 8 also put a lot into system-wide search in Win 8.1 Update, but not as far as putting it in the middle of the screen.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:20:14 PM
    Federighi: Let's launch an app. I'm going to start here with Maps. As I scroll the content of maps, translucency reacts to content beneath. Calendar has a new look for week view but also a whole new day view. Get details about appointments. 2 p.m exec karaoke outing. ha!
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:20:33 PM
    Federighi: Messages. Use of the translucent sidebar material. How the contents of the title bar react as I scroll content underneath.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:20:53 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:20:53 PM
    Federighi: Notification center. Today view so can see calendar at a glance. Weather. Interactive so can click.
  • Tim Stevens 6/2/2014 5:20:54 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:21:16 PM
    Sidebar is starting feel much more mobile-like.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:21:20 PM
    Federighi: I can edit these widgets as well. All from apps that can export widgets. Can drag out calculator. Even a third-party widget. ESPN Sports Center. Get all of my info at a glance.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:21:24 PM
    Especially the push for widgets.

    Federighi: Next Spotlight. Great for looking up ppl too. Looking up Phil Schiller. I have all of his contact info, matches on mail, also have events and reminders. Here that meeting at the campsite. Jeff and Jony are both in too. haha. Makes joke about Jony Ive aluminium =-crafted spoons

  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:23:01 PM
    Federighi: In addition to the app, I get all my recent documents that I've opened with the app. The trip is planned ot involve a 16.4 mile hike. Being an operations pro, Jeff is stickler for metric system. Get an instant conversion to kilometers.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:23:07 PM
    So many things, both here and in Win 8, feel designed to keep you out of the old-school task of combing through file folders.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:23:28 PM
    Federighi: I can also do great searches. Type a few characters, bang, got Yosemite entry from Wikipedia. News from various sources. Even have maps.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:24:04 PM
    So, Spotlight becomes a replacement for apps and web browsing, pulling local and online content in.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:24:08 PM
    Federighi: Can look for sushi. Maps info right here right in Spotlight. Great info from Yelp. Want to go to a movie - type in Godzilla, have show times for where it's playing near me, as well as content I can stream from the iTunes store, all here in Spotlight.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:24:15 PM
    Federighi: That's a quick look of the UI in Yosemite.
  • Shara Tibken 6/2/2014 5:24:20 PM

    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.
  • dan.ackerman 6/2/2014 5:25:41 PM
    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
