    I’m disappointed Apple Maps for iOS wasn’t talked about with all the major flops from October 2012 to January.

    looks a lot like the new Blackberry interface. Nothing here to make me rush out and spend any money.

    Which Macs will accommodate Mavericks upgrades? Did I miss that?

    You know, I don’t think they said.. I do know they said AirDrop was limited on iOS devices because of WiFi? correct? Not sure about legacy laptop support.

    Normally, I should be excited by this set of announcements, but I’m not now. Why? Because Apple is complicit in the largest expansion of government surveillance power in my lifetime… that we know of, at least. (That is, unless you believe their technicality-laden denial with wording nearly identical to several other of the named companies.) Every desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, and personal music player currently in my household is an Apple product, but until we get this sorted out, I’m not buying any more of their gear. And I’m recommending that family and friends do the same.

    Someone of Tim Cook’s stature could stand up to the government here. Come on, Tim! Get out in front of this one and we’ll support you. We do not need or want absolute security at this price. It’s unnecessary and it’s unconstitutional.

    (Yes, I realize that the company running this forum is also on the list. We’ll deal with them separately.)
