30-second Initial Reaction to Apple’s WWDC Announcements

I was stuck in a staff meeting during the live steam of Apple’s WWDC keynote today, so I’ve gone through great lengths to avoid media coverage and my Apple loving family, friends, and co-workers so I can go in cold when I watch the video steam of today’s event.

After spending about 30 seconds on Apple’s website, here is my initial reaction to today’s news.

  • iOS 5.0 and iCloud will go live this fall.
  • Mac OS X 10.7 Lion will go on sale in July for $30; appears to be electronic download only.
  • There is no iTunes or other Mac OS X software updates available today.
  • From the website, it wasn’t clear if there was any changes to MobileMe starting today.
Like I said, this is a 30 second impression from quickly skimming the Apple website and taking a look at what updates appeared in the Mac OS X Software Update control panel and what is being featured in the Mac App Store.

You can watch today’s keynote address now as a steaming video from the Apple website.

I’ll have more impressions and comments as soon as I can sit down and watch today’s WWDC keynote address.
