The apps keep bringing retro sexy back. First it was Instagram with its Lomo-esque filters or polaroid film borders. Now we have 1-Bit Camera that takes photography back to when we had digital photography but it was still in its infancy. Harking back to my Apple Quicktake camera that let me take digital photos but with so much noise they were basically useless (compared to the slick ISO of my Canon DSLR). Not long before we see cassette tape shaped iPhone cases. Oh wait.

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.
