  • Cook mainly focusing on how the Mac uptake beats out the PC - with 100% total growth over 5 years compared to the PC's 18%
    6/10/2013 5:19:56 PM

  • 28 million copies of Mountain Lion, the latest operating system, sold.
    6/10/2013 5:22:00 PM
  • The model cars are going down well in the room. When the controller tells the other cars to block the hero vehicle, they move into formation to fill the road.
    6/10/2013 5:22:00 PM
  • MacBook is the number one laptop in the US
    6/10/2013 5:22:00 PM

  • Taking us through the different things to do in multiple screens - dragging apps across displays, summoning the dock to different displays. And it integrates with an Apple TV - making the TV a "full-power display" as well

    6/10/2013 5:31:24 PM
  • Getting a lot of stuff for power users - compressed memory, OpenGL4, and now looking at CPU activity and how it draws on power. 
    6/10/2013 5:32:12 PM
  • Mavericks reduces the transitions between idle CPU time and usage, reducing overall CPU activity by 72%
    6/10/2013 5:32:50 PM
  • Compressed memory now - much better responsiveness for apps and 1.5X better for waking a system from standby.
    6/10/2013 5:33:57 PM
  • Improvements to Safari with a bookmarks sidebar - with access to bookmarks, and a built in reading list (looks like Pocket to me), and a new feature called 'shared links' which collates shared links from Twitter and Linkedin - but no mention of Facebook.
    by James Vincenton Jun 10, 2013 at 5:34 PM

    6/10/2013 5:35:26 PM
  • Safari uses less memory than Chrome and Firefox, and less memory use. 
    6/10/2013 5:36:25 PM
  • Scrolling - fast scrolling - just got called "epic", and "super glassy smooth"
    6/10/2013 5:37:15 PM
  • The new Calendar does look fantastic - specially integration with iPhones. As in, set an event, right click and get the notification for it sent right to your phone, 5, 10 , or how ever many minutes you want.

    6/10/2013 5:50:41 PM
  • Currently going through the new iBooks, though it's not the most exciting. Smooth navigation, good study cards, but just note-taking at the end of the day. Integration between devices is good though. More creation of the ultimate apple ecoystem - bookmarks, travel routes, what page you were last reading on a book. 
    6/10/2013 5:51:50 PM
  • And now, some actual hardware now. Handing over to Phil Schiller talking about the MacBook Air
    6/10/2013 5:52:42 PM
  • 'What is the future of the notebook?' - the Air apparently. Entirely new line coming out, with a claim of all-day battery life. 
    6/10/2013 5:53:08 PM
  • As we predicted it's coming in on the new Intel Haswell chips

  • New Mac Pro - 'we didn't just wanna make another version, same old'
    6/10/2013 5:58:18 PM
  • The Mac Pro is a .......... cylinder!? It looks like a warhead! Or the best bin ever. 
    6/10/2013 6:00:09 PM
  • *the most expensive bin ever.
    6/10/2013 6:00:39 PM

    6/10/2013 6:05:28 PM

    by James Vincenton Jun 10, 2013 at 6:15 PM

    6/10/2013 6:15:40 PM
  • We're now into a demo of how you can have tabs in your finder, essentially a simple way of offering improved navigation.
    6/10/2013 6:16:05 PM
  • New features include Tagging to you can tag documents and find them through the sidebar. Craig Federighi is rushing through new features like multiple displays so you can do more if you have more than one monitor.
    6/10/2013 6:16:05 PM
  • Tagging means you can locate different documents and files by linking them with a tag.
    6/10/2013 6:16:06 PM
  • It also means that the Search capabilities on the Mac, already excellent, are now improved. Multiple displays is a feature that won't appeal to most people but if you use two screens this is a slick, clever and attractive way to use them.
    6/10/2013 6:16:06 PM
  • Now we're onto advanced tech for improved performance and battery life. There's a lot of jargon here.
    6/10/2013 6:16:06 PM
  • Compressed memory is designed to save time and make responsiveness
    6/10/2013 6:16:06 PM

    6/10/2013 6:16:06 PM
  • The design is cleaner, more straight lines.
    6/10/2013 6:16:07 PM
  • Safari uses much less power than rivals such as Chrome and Firefox, Apple claims.
    6/10/2013 6:16:07 PM
  • A technology called app nap that cleverly manages power usage looks impressive.
    6/10/2013 6:16:07 PM
  • Next up is iCloud Keychain which is a password management system. It saves passwords and logins in an encrypted form and save them to all your Macs.
    6/10/2013 6:16:07 PM
  • As you'd expect it looks slick and impressive.
