This is when we all remember that the "D" in WWDC stands for "developers." This new-programming-language stuff means little to nothing to most of us. But it theoretically could mean motivated developers working on new stuff for the App Store in the long run.
iOS8 will be available to developers for beta testing today and available to everyone else in the fall.
Oh, look, it's Tim Cook! I remember him!
Cook's really harping on integration between devices. What's he getting at here? Hmm ...
Oh, not really anything except a recap. Really sounded like he might be cranking up a "one more thing" there.
And that's it from the WWDC keynote. The conference is always heavy on software, for obvious reasons. This one was 100% software.
This of us hoping for a big splash were disappointed. But in Apple's world, a new programming language that excites developers is a big deal. Surprised we didn't get at least a little Mac action on the side.
And there are some nice updates coming with iOS8. Not all (of even most) of them are unique to Apple. But they did their typical nice job of pulling together attractive features from elsewhere, putting the Apple shine on them and packaging them in an attractive way.
All that lovely Apple vaporware -- iWatch, Apple television set -- remains vapor. Not that we expected much different. If we get any of that, it likely will come in the fall when we get a new iPhone.
Thanks for hanging out with us, everybody! We'll do it again for the next big tech event. And check out CNN.com/TECH shortly for our news writes on everything from the keynote.
