OS X 10.9 "Mavericks"
No, I don't know what that name means either. :lol:

Just a bit cheesed off that they didn't use the obvious name for it: TARG. There's a cat name for ya. ;)

I do love some of those new products they announced today. The new Mac Pro looks like a giant glossy black elongated donut, and I'm excited about iOS 7.

Although I find myself not giving a crap about this "iCloud Keychain" which stores passwords (and automatically fills them in for you). I find this to be preferable. ;)

Mavericks refer to surfing, specifically surfers. It also means your parents didn't like you. I'm sooooo getting the new Mac Pro. My current Mac Pro is from 2008 and it humms along nicely, it can't compare to this. It actually pains me to have to wait for this sometime in the fall.

It seems that the new OS X naming convention will be to name future releases after California locations.

So what's next? OS X 11.0 Dodger Stadium? OS X 11.1 Griffith Park? OS X 11.2 Embarcadero? OS X 11.3 That Street Corner Where The Nuclear Wessels Scene In Star Trek IV Was Filmed? :D

Very pleased to see an iOS appearance update. I think it's been ugly and dated for a while.

I hope iOS 7 will allow the iPhone home screen to be used in landscape mode.

I actually think the new iOS icon style looks uglier than any previous iteration, but then again my iPhone's a 3GS so I'm not worried about it.

I do like the new Mac Pro, and if I had the money it would be the first computer on my want list.

I'm waiting patiently for the iPhone 5S, but if it has a fingerprint-only Home button I am going with the regular 5.
