As the resident Apple fan here’s quick overview of the latest annoucements

  • New Mario game for iOS – Interesting mobile play by Nintendo
  • New educational program ‘connectED’ – giving away a ton of gear to schools
    • “Everyone can Code” – program to make code a common thing starting with Swift Playgrounds
  • iPhone 7
    • doesn’t have headphone port. Feelings mixed. Might be fine, too early to tell.
    • the new wireless headphones seem problematic, and prone to being lost
    • a whole new chip for wireless sound? :mutter grumble: I get it, but I think it’s kinda dumb.
    • Do like the new cameras, and the base storage bump
    • I am a bit charmed by the fact that the wireless earpods look like a pair of Kodamas from Princess Mononoke.
  • iWork is now live collaborative, which is kinda cool but not earth shattering.
