iOS 7 is, in many ways, a beautiful new foundation on which to build for the next 5-10 years. But if that beautiful new foundation’s cloud service still mysteriously loses days of work with no way to troubleshoot and no recourse, I have a very difficult time seeing how that foundation is little more than change for the sake of it.
Maybe Apple has some incredible iCloud improvements and truly new ways to work and play in iOS 7 to show off at its fall event. Why we need to wait an entire year to see some of these improvements is another mystery to solve at another time.
I have questions. An open mind, yes. But questions. Certainly more than I’ve had in recent years.
I showed Jessi iOS 7 tonight:
“This looks like candy.”
[swipe swipe tap]
“This feels… a little much. Like they weren’t kidding about that ‘flat’ thing.”
[swipe up for Control Center]
“Oh that’s fantastic.”
“This looks like something Google would build.”
In case you’re wondering why I fell in love all over again, Venture Bros just packed in a Blade Runner reference and an iPad blowing up Michelle Bachmann.
