WWDC Keynote 2016

Once again The MacBites Crew and the MacBiters came together to watch, listen and chat. There was definitely more chat though as we were less than impressed with what Apple served up.

Let Us Loop You In

Thanks to AppleLeaks there were no surprises this time. But we had fun in the chat and that’s what it’s all about – a bunch of Apple Geeks (aka The MacBiters) getting together to watch the event and provide our own analysis – which is usually more entertaining that the main event!

Hey Siri

Two new iPhones, the iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil and a new AppleTv. Some games demos and some TV programmes. But the biggest surprise of the evening was the appearance of Microsoft on stage for the iPad demo.

WWDC Keynote 2015

What The Actual? From the video at the beginning to the guy from Beats (was he included in the transfer fee?) to Drake (who?). This definitely rated amongst the worst Keynotes for many years. Even Hairforce One looked uncomfortable.

MacBites the iBook

iBooks Author, a tool for creating eBooks, was released by Apple in January 2012. Within two weeks of the launch, Elaine had created an eBook (or iBook as Apple like to call it) of almost 100 pages that showcased all the great features of the application.

MacBites The iBook takes you on a journey from October 2007, when MacBites began, through to January 2012. Here’s just a few highlights of the book:

Go behind the scenes at MacBites HQ, listen to the best of the out-takes (there’s some hilarious ones in there), relive software and hardware launches and get to see Mike’s feet and Elaine’s lips!
