All signs point to 2010 being Apple’s annus mirabilis.
The introduction of the iPad is only the beginning. WWDC10 looks like it’s going to be fantastic; typical release cycles seem to point where we’re likely going to see the release iPhone OS 4.0 along with a new iPhone, and the first tidbits of Mac OS X. Additionally, while we have seen something from the iWork team this year, we haven’t seen anything from the iLife team yet.
It’s also worth noting that Snow Leopard featured very few new features and interface changes; I highly doubt that Apple’s designers were paid to do nothing for the entire Snow Leopard cycle. I’m geared up for all kinds of crazy Mac OS X stuff this WWDC.
There’s also the usual array of new hardware announcements; a brief glance at the numbers makes me think we’re in for a wild, wild year on that front as well.
I’ve been following Apple news since the early ’90s1 and I can’t recall ever being as excited about what’s coming next as I am right now.
Basically, as soon as I was old enough to follow news. ↩
