WWDC 2013 wish-list: iMore's top Mac hardware wants!

While there won't be new iPhones or iPads at WWDC 2013 -- those are coming in the fall -- there will be new Macs. Peter's been covering everything from the new Haswell chipsets we can look forward to, to the new Mac Pros every geek is hoping beyond hope for. But what are we most looking forward to? Which non-mobile slab of glass and aluminium do we most want to bring home with us this June?

Well...

WWDC 2013 wish-list: iMore's top iCloud wants!

To the internet! That's what everyone is doing these days, and for Apple, that means iCloud. The rebirth of MobileMe, which was the rebirth of .Mac, iCloud has been praised for its effortless backup and restore, easy app and media re-downloads, and it's $0 price tag for the basic level. But it's also caught flack for outages, for iMessage, and for Core Data sync, which has bedeviled developers. So what do the staff and friends of iMore most want to see in iCloud next?

Let's see!

Hall of fame: Loren Brichter and Tweetie

Tweetie for iPhone launched in 2008 and from the very beginning was described as the Twitter app Apple themselves would have made. While that was certainly meant to compliment Tweetie's native look and feel, and its incredible performance, it falls short of capturing the skill and vision of Loren Brichter, the man behind the app.

WWDC 2013 wish-list: iMore's top OS X 10.9 wants!

What does everyone here at iMore want to see in OS X 10.9? Apple does still make a desktop operating system, after all, and let's face it, even trucks need new engineering and body work. Since this is the final week before WWDC 2013 it's the last chance for us, staff and friends alike, to make with the feature requests. So...

To the wish-lists!

The 2013 iMore hall of fame will be inducting apps that were launched no later than December 31, 2008, which means this year, for the first time, the first wave of official App Store apps, and the developers and designers who crafted them, are now in contention.

WWDC 2013 wish-list: iMore's top iOS 7 wants!

What do we want to see in iOS 7? That's a question I've been trying to answer since pretty much the moment after iOS 6 launched last year. But this being the final week before WWDC 2013 it's the last chance everyone here at iMore, staff and friends alike, have to stretch our imaginations and let our number one wishes for iOS 7 really fly.

So, up, up, and away!

Editor's Desk: Just. Breathe.

My stress level seldom goes above a 7. (Roofs are a rare exception!) I have Georgia to thank for that. She taught me her ZEN & TECH breathing kung-fu and I'm using all of them right now. Here's why:

iOS 7 wants: An iMessage. Merged with FaceTime. That works. Everywhere.

iMessage and FaceTime today do pretty much what they did years ago at launch. While it's hard to say they've been neglected, Apple hasn't prioritized them to the same degree their competition has been prioritizing Google Hangouts, FaceBook Messenger, or BlackBerry Messenger of late. What features Apple has been adding have been centered more around notifications and the management thereof, which are important but secondary to core communications features. You can't be notified about something you can't do. All of this adds up to something I'd sorely like to see integrated, fixed, and perhaps even expanded in iOS 7:

Who needs a Mac Pro when they can get an iMac?

In previous editorials I've shared my opinion on the state of the Mac Pro and what the next Mac Pro could have inside. Now it's time to ask a more fundamental question: Do we need the Mac Pro at all? After all, isn't the iMac the...well...pro desktop Mac?

Apple vs. Android: The marketshare mentality, and why it's a mistake

Last week Techpinions.com posted a really good editorial by John Kirk discussing how much of a joke it is to consider Android the winner in the smartphone space simply because they have the most market share. The very next day, Business Insider tech editor Jay Yarow pubished a post with a headline that read, “Apple Should Be Furious That It Has Such A Tiny Sliver Of The Smartphone Market.” Here's John Gruber’s response at Daring Fireball. And here's my take...
