Project Loon - Google [X] moon shot project to provide internet access everywhere by deploying Balloons in Stratosphere.
iOS 7 introduction video - Apple.
The biggest changes to iOS since the introduction of the original iPhone.
Looks like Apple took a lot of lessons from its fiercest competitor in the smartphone ecosystem, Android.
Command center is inspired from quick toggles.
Lock screen notifications on Android are for a long time.
Safari tab switching is exactly like Chrome’s.
Finally multi tasking is available for iOS, lifted directly from webOS cards UI, designed by Matias Duarte, Android design head.
iTunes Radio sounds a lot like Play Music All-access, although a lot limited.
Mail app allows swipe to delete, Gmail has this function from years.
Calendar apps looks very similar to Google’s.
Navigation drawer in core apple apps, e.g., iMessage, all updated Google apps feature it.
Swipe to unlock, Lock screen looks very Holo-ish.
Auto-app updates finally comes to iOS.
Notification Sync, Google Play Services offer it for a month by now and its amazing, I must say.
Apple Maps, that were limited to iOS till now are available on Mac, Google Maps is available everywhere.
It seems iOS is morphing into Android slowly, but its still crippled by the restrictions imposed by Apple, you still can’t make Chrome your default browser, neither Maibox as your default Mail app, you can’t post a picture from the photos apps to Tumblr directly, I mean WTF is this, it is 2013, not 2007!
This meme is worth sharing!
The all new iOS 7, a fresh coat of paint all around, looks a lot better than its predecessor. The skeuomorphism is gone, new typography, revamped icons, new lock screen, control centre and improved notifications.
No ‘Big Cat’ names for OS X anymore.
