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).

OSX is the best OS by far for Desktop use. Games are a really crap metric to rate desktop usability. The stuff like calendar integration etc is second to none and seems to be really obvious stuff that other OSes miss. But seriously we're still a long way to go for computing to stop sucking.

Like where the hell is Proxy server/wireless integration? I shouldn't have to disable/enable proxies manually in OSX. It should automatically enable/disable them as soon as you join a remembered wireless network. My home wifi doesn't use a proxy. Why keep the settings for my work proxy enabled when I'm at home? If I need it I'll set it myself.

Really obvious yet stupid setting that every OS has so far screwed up. OSX is ahead of the curve on these things but still leaves a lot to be desired. Linux needs to learn from OSX and integrate things a lot more tightly. It's annoying how many small services could be working in unison which fail to on Linux. For the record I think Microsoft is so far behind on this stuff it's not even worth mentioning. They're incapable of learning and fixing their bad practices.
