Aye, felt the same.

Buy a new iPad every three years! This sounds like a great future we’re heading towards :|

If you pause and look at that "200" slide about all the new features in Mountain Lion, they had to _really_ scrape the barrel to fill that slide:

* Swipe between pages in Mac App Store :|
* Share from within Mac App Store :|
* Simplified scanning UI
* Calendar sidebar
* Do not track in Safari (it’s just a bloody checkbox and a request header!)

There were several things that impressed me.

I like the Do Not Disturb feature. I like the "Remind me Later" UI for declining calls. I, personally, will use the FB integration often. I like the potential for Passbook. I like the expansion of Siri, which was sorely lacking in v1. I like Facetime over 3G.

I love the subtle bits, like the multiple signatures and the pull to refresh.

I know these aren't novel. I know these exist for Jailbreak and Android. But having just got a Galaxy Nexus and used ICS-current, I appreciate the fit and finish of iOS. So count me as excited.
