Apple WWDC 2012

This is a little late. I was a bit busy these days with playing CoD and SSFIV:AE2012.

So anyway, on to the Keynote:

generally it was a little bit less than what i expected, but it was nevertheless exciting and had a ton of new stuff.

First of all: the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display



  • Its got a 2880-by-1800 pixel screen, thats the highest resolution EVER on a laptop
  • 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 256GB of Flash storage
  • and it is tiny! Height: 1.8 cm Width:35.89 cm Weight: 2.02 kg

Personal opinion: it is just awesome! BUT if you need such a high performance machine. This laptop will be useful to designers and such, but not to uni students/teachers or just simple businessmen.

Price: A$ 2,499.00 (Ouch!)

Second: OSX Mountain Lion: 

OSX Mountain Lion

heaps of new features, which i personally can’t wait:

  • Reminders
  • Notes
  • Messages
  • Notification Centre
  • Twitter/Facebook Sharing
  • Dictation
  • PowerNap
  • AirPlay
  • GameCenter (nobody cares about game center….)
  • and a better Safari
A very nice update, bringing OSX one step closer to iOS.
And last: iOS 6


  • Better Siri
  • New Maps (goodbye Google Maps)
  • Facebook integration (same as twitter)
  • Shared Photo Streams
  • FaceTime over 3G
  • better Safari
  • Do not Disturb switch
  • useless Passbook

not that exiting, but hey, and update is an update


Also while me and David were watching the Keynote live, he sent me this interesting screenshot, which I found rather funny:
