So, watchOS is definitely progressing nicely. I'm not as excited about it as they are, but still nice.

Fucking Deepak Chopra.

Yeah, want to hear ARL's take on the accessibility.

Somewhere, Gruber is tweeting something like: "Eddy Cue: untucked".

Looks like it's about where it should've been at launch now — particularly for third-party apps, which might, just might, now actually be usable. A year of spinning-circle hell later. They should've just launched without apps and announced the API today.

Oh crap, the new Apple Remote app for iOS borrows the worst thing from the Podcast app: that teeny arrow target in the upper left -- if your finger misses it, the tap does something else (and when it's in a list, you have to swipe up from an even smaller target area to get to that screen).

OK, single sign-on for the AppleTV is huge. Such a pain in the ass to do app-by-app.

Wait, was that a "Silicon Valley" joke?

Continuity is the best thing Apple has done in years — the true "it just works" promise. They should hype it way more as they keep adding features.

Failure is pre-greatness.
Ha! HSM 30 years later.

I see a lot more embarrassing accidental porn pastes happening.

They are blowing through a lot of things quickly -- like that expansion of iCloud Drive. (And THANK YOU for finally realizing not everyone uses the Documents folder.)

"Apple Pay on macOS -- so if you're carrying your Mac Pro in Trader Joes" -- oh, okay, they made that joke themselves.

This Apple Pay stuff is really good too, but they're still not getting the uptake they should at point of sale. Just buy Square, already!
