The Gillmor Gang — Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — absorb the WWDC keynote. iOS7, OS/10 Mavericks, Macbook Air refresh, and iTunes Radio were the big bullets, but underlying the event was the resurgence of Apple as the leader in setting the agenda. Not everyone buys this perspective, of course. @scobleizer sees this as the assignment of RIM and Microsoft to the dustbin of history. But wait, there’s XBox.
@dbfarber provides the context, @kevinmarks the technopop view, and I watch from the comfort of my living room as Apple TV looms, the elephant in the room. 1080P HD straight into the living room, iOS7′s control panel makes AirPlay one scroll and click away. Apple no longer feels haunted by the ghost of Steve Jobs; they’re having fun again in Cupertino.
