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 think the AirDrop feature reminds me of Bump which has been around for a few years. Bump uses "bumping" two devices as a pairing mechanism (matched with precise time and location) and support pairing with the desktop browser from http://bu.mp bumping the spacebar. I never took off really, I'm sure Apple will have a greater success though as preinstalled on millions of phones.
