“With iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, Apple is finally showing us its idea of how we’ll compute in the future,” Charlie Sorrel writes for Cult of Mac. “Perhaps not surprisingly, this pristine vision of our computing destiny — unveiled after years of secret, patient and painstaking development — aligns perfectly with how we currently use our computers and mobile devices.”
“The keynote at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this month not only showed off a new way to think about computing, based on data not devices, but also silenced pretty much every criticism leveled at the company over the past few years,” Sorrel writes. “Let’s take a look at Apple’s new way of doing things, which fulfills Steve Jobs’ post-PC plan by minimizing the importance of the Mac.”
“Instead of forcing OS X to be more like iOS (as we all thought would happen with OS X 10.10 Yosemite),” Sorrel writes, “Apple’s ecosystem instead lets each device do what it does best — and uses iCloud to tie them together.”
