I have watched through the whole thing live, and that is an awesome progress!!!

Will somebody, please, call Microsoft and tell them that they suck?

Thank you!

Your constant bashing on MS is getting tiring. I did not look at this article to hear whining about MS...

Otherwise, I do like the flat look. My BB10 device has had it for a while, Windows 8 has it (though that is but 1 of the few things I like about W8), and now it looks like Apple is following suite with all of it's products...

Wow these new features are stellar. It makes my decision to get an iPad over the Surface Pro 3 pretty set and stone now.

Not convinced the flat ios look is better but it's newer and that's what makes it desirable I guess.

In terms of the UI, it sucks mega-balls. It's unimaginative flat design bs. Still better than Metro I suppose.

BBC news website said:
The company introduced HealthKit software that works with third-party wearable health devices.

A parallel app, called Health, measures users' personalised healthcare statistics, and even contacts their hospital directly if it notices irregularities.
Not copying Samsung at all are we Apple?

Meanwhile on the iOS front, Apple is unapologetically taking features from Android including widgets, app video previews and third party keyboards. Seems like hypocrisy to me.

This is nightmare come alive. They re-made the UI to look as awful as iOS7. This is the end for me. I have to work all day watching the screen, and the "old" UI is what I switched to Mac for. Why are they doing this to me? It's probably some agent crawled into their management to destroy Apple from inside. I can't imagine any professional to be happy looking at the 80's style flat task bar and unnatural acid colours of the icons/buttons. This is terrible news, the worst I had in months.

Totally agree!
I wish someone will fork Darwin to make os x 10 compatible os, with old perfect aqua design.
I wont upgrade my osx, better to move to linux.

Wow, this is one of the largest cases of self-entitlement I've seen here, or anywhere.

I think you have lost touch with reality and/or you have a super privileged life for this to be the worst news you've had in months.

Absolutely. The new look is ugly as hell and amateurish. Looks like a Linux with a bad them applied.

I've had a blackberry, an android, an iphone, a dell, an ipad, an imac, and a macbook, so basically I've tried every operating system out there minus symbian. I think yosemite is the least attractive out of all of them. Steve jobs is rolling in his grave.
