What do you think about the new look for iOS 7? [Poll]

What do you think about the new look for iOS 7?

The iOS 7 announcement at WWDC 2013 left us with a lot to talk about, but the most immediately noticeable difference is the appearance. Since Jony Ive took charge of the design, we had heard countless rumors about all the skeuomorphic elements being stripped out leaving us with a much simpler, flatter design. And that's pretty much what we got -- though if you look carefully at the press shots of Notes and Reminders, there's still a hint of paper in there. It's different, a whole lot different, but we want to know what you think of it.

What did you think of the WWDC 2013 keynote? [Poll]

What did you think of the WWDC keynote? [Poll]

So, we've emerged the other side of the WWDC 2013 day one keynote, and Apple definitely left us with a lot to take in. There were some things we were expecting, some rumors that turned out to be true, and then there was the Mac Pro. During the two hours, besides the stunning looking Mac Pro sneak peek, Apple unveiled OS X 10.9 Mavericks, refreshed MacBook Air hardware, iOS 7 and iTunes Radio, not counting the countless new features on both operating systems that were talked about and demonstrated.

What are you most looking forward to from WWDC? [Poll]

What are you most looking forward to from WWDC?

Today, it's go time. It's been such a long time now since Apple hit the stage that excitement is at fever pitch ahead of the WWDC 2013 keynote. From the moment Tim Cook hits the stage, we really don't know exactly what to expect. We know we'll be seeing iOS 7, and we know we'll be seeing OS X 10.9, but aside from that we haven't the first clue exactly what to expect. It's actually pretty exciting!

What is your primary iOS gaming device? [Poll]

What is your primary iOS gaming choice?

There has been a bit of talk about mobile gaming in these parts this week, and while the Talk Mobile discussions are incredible -- really, they are so check them out if you haven't already -- we wanted to bring it back to iOS a little. Unlike our Windows or Android loving friends, our device choices for mobile gaming are pretty limited; one line of phone, two different tablets, the iPod touch and the Apple TV. But, that doesn't mean we don't target one of these specifically for getting our game on.

Will you be switching to Google Music All Access? [Poll]

Will you be switching to Google Music All Access? [Poll]

Google's SVP of Android and Chrome, Sundar Pichai, left the D11 conference having dropped a huge piece of news for iOS; that their new All Access music service would be coming to iOS in a matter of weeks. While we're not short on music streaming services on iOS, Google going cross-platform is a big deal. They also offer a different experience to some of their competing services, in that each account also has a cloud locker large enough for 20,000 songs. But, is all this enough to encourage you to switch?

Would you want to buy a larger than 9.7-inch iPad? [Poll]

Would you want to buy a larger iPad?

There's a rumor that has been doing the rounds suggesting that a 13-inch 'iPad Maxi' could be on the cards for 2014. While we're pretty skeptical over any accuracy at all on this one, it does raise an interesting question. Should there ever be a larger than 9.7-inch iPad, would you want to pick one up?

There's an obvious, if niche, market for a larger display iPad. Folks with a design-centric profession for example could be appreciative of a larger display, as could medical professionals, or even schools. More room to view, more room to do, and still retain an air of portability over something like a MacBook.

BBM or Google+ Hangouts; are you excited by either? [Poll]

BBM or Google+ Hangouts; are you excited by either?

The big talk of the week has definitely been cross-platform messaging. First up at BlackBerry Live, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins dropped the huge news that their signature messaging platform, BBM, would be going cross-platform this summer and coming to iOS as well as Android. Then, literally 24 hours later Google stepped up and introduced their cross-platform offering, Google+ Hangouts, released the same day on iOS. What we want to know is; are you excited by either of these products?

Would you still buy a non-Retina MacBook? [Poll]

Would you still buy a non-Retina MacBook?

The Retina MacBook Pro has been with us for almost a full year now. The 15-inch version came to us by way of WWDC 2012, and frankly was unlike any laptop computer ever seen. The incredible 2880x1800 resolution Retina Display had to be seen to be believed, and just like that Apple had the best laptop display ever produced.

The Retina MacBook Pro now also comes in a 13-inch form factor too, and the display is equally stunning to look at. Combined with a slimmer profile compared to the non-Retina MacBook Pro's, it's a remarkable piece of hardware.

Is Google Now the personal assistant of your dreams? [Poll]

Is Google Now the personal assistant of your dreams?

Google Now: one of the signature features of the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and beyond. Initially launching at the 2012 Google I/O developer conference, its grand purpose is to give you the information you want, without having to go and get it. Be that local weather, traffic information for your commute to work, sports scores, even now pulling in flight and package shipping information. If you travel to another country, Google Now will provide handy cards to calculate costs using the current exchange rate, for easy translation into the local tongue and even to tell you what the time is back home. Google Now is supposed to be your intelligent assistant. And now, it's with us on iOS.

Are you jealous of BlackBerry 10? [Poll]

Are you jealous of BlackBerry 10?

Our friends over at CrackBerry highlighted a forum thread today where a BlackBerry 10 user claimed their iPhone-totting friends were jealous of all the shiny new features that phone had to offer. I've been using a BlackBerry Z10 for over a month now, and while I like a lot of the ideas BlackBerry is testing out in their new OS, I'm not in the least bit inclined to switch over yet, and I'm not sure jealousy has reared its ugly head even once.

The gesture navigation, even if less discoverable, is great once you get the hang of it, as are features like peek, where you can glimpse messages without transitioning completely into them, and the hub where all communications are aggregated. It really does feel like webOS all grown up, now sporting a suit and a tie. But there are still the types of quirks you'd expect to find in any new operating system, which need smoothing out and polishing up, and not only are a lot of major apps still missing, I can't find any of the apps I use every day on any platform outside iOS (looking at you Twitterrific, Tweetbot, Launch Center Pro, Fantastical, Drafts, Elements, etc.)

But I'm curious, if you've had a chance to see or try out BlackBerry 10, have you felt the least bit jealous? iOS is now the oldest platform in mobile, and BlackBerry 10 the newest, does that tempt you in any way? Or are you too busy enjoying what's still the best interface, app, and content experience to have even noticed BB10 yet?
