WWDC: iOS taking GoogCues

If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then Google must be kinda happy today. The usual revolutionary releases from Apple didn’t seem so “revolutionary” but instead kind of ordinary. The additions to iOS5 was really just taking cues from Google but in Apple style “it just works”. HAHA… yea we know Google has been doing it for a while and it has been working great. One thing I was happy to see with iOS was integration of Twitter right into the OS. There were some other features that were pretty cool but the one thing they did not include that I was waiting for was widgets!

I was really hoping that the iPad at least would get some derivative of MacOS Dashboard that would be widget-able. I guess that will have to come later.

iSprint

Oh boy… Here goes the rumor mill again; though there could be some credibility to this. I know there are the iPhone5 hints wandering around but the latest in the last few days points to Apple releasing their very popular device to Sprint and T-Mobile as well.

I have been a Sprint customer for years and I have seen the company go through some serious downs and with its embrace of Android some continual ups lately. The release of their flagship HTC EVO really was a shot in the arm as it was the premier Android device at CES year back. They also had some first-to-market opportunities with its marriage with Wi-Max and their MiFi hotspots like Overdrive.
