Apple's WWDC13 Keynote

What are everyone's thoughts on the keynote today?

I can't wait to see the new Mac Pro in person. I don't know how I'm feeling about the new flat iOS 7 look.. we shall see once it gets here. the new keychain seems like a really great addition. Finder tabs seems to be a bit of catch-up for me since I'm used to using Total Finder. Overall, I'm really excited about everything!

Interesting. I'm not surprised the flat UI is here. Johhny Ive has expressed is displeasure with the Skeuomorph design they have used on iOS since day one.

I will say, it looks "cheap" though from those images. Like it's a high school or college student prototype; not a multi-billion dollar company. But I'll wait to pass final judgement till I have iOS7 in my hands.

I too, am most excited about the new Mac Pro. It sounds really great!

Was hoping for a new Macbook Pro w/ Haswell and Thunderbolt 2 being announced, but hopefully that's around the corner considering the fact it's inevitable.

It's looking good for Apple. I do like the new IOS7 operating system have to say it looks good from a design point of view I think they sem to be moving in the right direction. The Mac book Pro sounds awesome- time for an upgrade I think...

I think the IOS7 design looks really inconsistant. Some of the design is completely flat, some of it has drastic gradients, and other parts have an overload of blur. I like it for the most part though.

It's not meant to be entirely flat; it's a style that companies and designers like to call a mix between the design Apple had before and flat.

It's actually an upcoming trend that Apple decided to go with mixing the two for IOS7.

My thoughts: OSX = Cool name Mac Pro = awesome iOS 7 = Looks like WP8 and WebOS had a baby. Finally has a ton of features that Android has had.

Overall: Excited to develop!

Excited for the new Mac Pro, not that I can afford one, but looks innovative.

New apps on iOS, we'll see. Design quality on new iOS7 , terrible. A step in the wrong direction. It feels like Apple is following everyone else on this particular aspect, and not the other way around.

New Mac Air, meh. Sounds great.

Don't take any of my opinions too seriously; I'm not a pundit. The only Apple product I can afford is my iPhone.

For the most part I'm liking all of the items announced. iOS 7 looks good to me for the post part, but I'm not sure about some of the default app icons. I like flat, but only to a point. The parallax feature of the home screen looks cool.
