PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Apple held its big keynote event thing at WWDC earlier this evening, but since I was away with friends I've had to read up on it later in the evening. The company announced iOS 7, OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and they gave a preview of the new Mac Pro. Especially the Mac Pro impressed me, and while iOS 7's new Holo/Metro-inspired theme looks messy and garish to me, I do commend Apple for finally breaking the mold. This news item will focus on iOS 7 - I'll dive into the Mac Pro and OS X 10.9 tomorrow (it's late here now).

I looked at OS X Mavericks and some of the new features, Maps and eBooks I have been using Maps with my current Linux distribution, OS4, http://www.os4online.com which included maps for at least a year, they included Nokia Maps then switched to Google Maps and it was the first Linux distro that I know of that included FBReader as an ebook reader by default. Thunar and Nautilus have had tabs and apps could go full screen long before Mavericks did as well. I think Mavericks is just playing catch up with some of the things that have already been around for awhile.
