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).

AirDrop

I'll be interested to see just how far the AirDrop integration will go. I'm primarily a Mac user and I love AirDrop when sending files to other Mac users. Encrypted wireless file transfer over an ad-hoc network without any of the irritating setup at both ends, and it really helps when you're sending a file to someone who doesn't have the first clue what an ad-hoc network is let alone how to set it up. No need to pass around thumb drives, or even to have a wireless network in range. Being able to AirDrop files to and from Mac and iOS would be convenient. Now we just need it for Windows and *nix, and for it to be compatible across the board. I suspect that last bit is a pipe dream though.
