Yosemite OS X is available today
(Cue is Apple's head of Internet services and software - the key deal broker for iTunes etc)
Federighi: This is just a quick overview of the amazing new Yosemite release from its amazing design. ICloud drive.
Oh man. Eddy Cue now has to do this handshake. He looks very uncoordinated and gets turned away. (joke of course).
We're seeing a video from Phil Schiller about security. Shows some elaborate secret handshake to get into the Apple offices.
Federighi: The best security you have is the one you're wearing on your wrist. (he's using Watch to flip through slideshow)
Federighi: Now about to play a joke video using AirPlay from Mac to Apple TV
Big applause for celebrity call-in from the crowd.
(he's joking about the fact Apple Watch isn't out yet)
Colbert: Get back to work. You know what I see when I look at my wrist? My wrist.
Code name for Tim Cook is "chairman honeycrisp." haha
Colbert: If supreme commander was good enough for Ike, it's good enough for me. I'd also accept intergalactic chancellor
Federighi says he's not sure
Colbert: I just don't think it's big enough to capture my role at Apple. How about supreme allied commander of super secrecy
Colbert: I've got a big problem with my title.
Who was the call-in at WWDC this year?
They're doing this little bit with code words. Pretty funny. "Hello Red Delicious."
Oh, it actually is him. On the phone.
Colbert sounds annoyed to be bothered (joke of course)
Is this an official endorsement from Colbert?
Federighi is making a call to Stephen Colbert through the Mac
Note that the iMac and MacBook I noted earlier at the side of the stage were used for this demo.
Jokes Chief of Secrecy is Stephen Colbert
Federighi: Let's add my picture for controlling leaks. I can drop it right in there.
Federighi: I can get to my presentation as well. iCloud Drive right here in the folder. He's my presentation about secrecy at Apple.
IS it just me, or are there more in-jokes at these presentations in the Tim Cook era?
Federighi: It's just magical.
Message about the latest rumor - "Apple 'Spaceship' an actual spaceship." He jokes that rumors are usually wrong, "but in this case, they actually nailed it."
Federighi: While I'm working on my iPad, my phone can even be across the house. If I receive an SMS, I can pick it up on my iPad.
For the record keepers, that was the first "Ok, let's try that again" moment of the presentation. (Demoing Continuity)
Federighi is showing us how this works. Swipe up and open the item up. Can see the photos he favorited on his phone. Now he's going back into his photo library on the phone. On the iPad, it shows up automatically
Federighi: What's really great with Continuity is I can pick up where I left off.
Federighi: Showing Apple Cafe menu with names of the items redacted. Increased the number of lasers on the path to the bathroom. The printer is just a shredder
Even Shara laughed at the line about maintaining secrecy at Apple (after yesterday's accidental leak).
