Given the breadth and scope of Apple's WWDC 2014 announcements it's not surprising that the man at the helm of it all, Apple's CEO, Tim Cook is getting a lot of attention and analysis thrown his way. Some of it has been excellent, some of it has been dreadful.

What are you most excited about in iOS 8?

We're now a full day removed from the torrent of information Apple threw at us at WWDC 2014 concerning iOS 8, and hopefully by now most folks will have had chance for most of it to sink in a little.
