Apple’s WWDC keynote gave Steve Job’s the opportunity to show off the new MacOS X, the new iOS and the iCloud service, none of which seem to be all that exciting. I was left with more questions than answers after the show. Here’s just a few of them:
- If Lion is a download only install from the App Store, how do I go about rebuilding a broken machine which doesn’t have an OS?
- How much control do I have for my iCloud sync settings. There are things I only want on my iPad and other things I only want on my iPhone. Do I have to have all things on all devices now?
- iCloud is free now, what about in two years after it become the center of my Apple ecosystem? I remember e-mail for life from Apple, mostly because I’m paying for MobileMe now. Will this be another, “yeah it’s free… for now.” deal?
I’m sorry but this wasn’t really a wow-that’s-neat talk for me. I’m glad to see computer-less iPad functionality but I’m not quite sure I’m ready to be assimilated into Apple’s cloud just yet.
