I get more questions about how/why iCloud does certain things than nearly any other topic. Esepcially about photos and galleries.
Federighi: Next up Mail. Mail in Yosemite. Elegant new Yosemite-style UI. Reliable syncing, quick collection of mail. the basics. Along with that wanted to address fundamental problem with Mail. Want to send large attachments but get message that friend's mail can't handle large files. Mail Drop. Can choose to have it sent encrypted via iCloud and it rendezvous on the receiving end. If Mac, receive as before. If other client, link to download
Federighi: Attachments can be up to 5 GB in size
Serious question -- does anyone use a native mail client anymore? Or are we all on webmail of various types now?
Federighi: Next mark-up. Ever working on an email message and wishing could doodle something to get point across. With mark-up you can. Even works with PDFs. If need to sign PDF, can do it.
Federighi: Next up Safari. We've in Yosemite been able to pack all of th epower of the Yosemite UI into this single bar. More space for your content.
Great idea, making it easy to add written signatures. But can that get tech vendors to stop asking me to sign and fax (!)
product loan forms back to them?
Federighi: May wonder what happened to favorites bar. Can bring back if want to but don't need to. In search, shows all favorites. Also great - when search, get spotlight suggestions.
Federighi: More powerful than ever for sharing. If want to subsribe to RSS feed on site, can do right here and will show up in Safari sidebar. Can share to ppl faster than ever. Show ppl you messaged recently.
Federighi: Safari is better than ever as well with tabs. Individual stacks for each site browing.
Federighi: Also great with privacy. New private window. All content stays private and all other windows unaffected
Federighi: Great when comes to standards. WebGL. HTML premium video. enables modern macs to efficiently stream video from sites like Netflix without a plugin. Get up to 2 hours longer battery life on a MacBook Air streaming Netflix.
Federighi: When it comes to multitab browser efficiency, Safari is unequaled.
Interesting -- Macs come with Safari as their default browser; PCs comes with IE. I'll just say there's one of those I'll actually use, and the other is quickly replaced with Chrome. I'll let you guess which is which.
Brian Kroll coming up for a Safari demo.
Kroll: It's really great. When you go to a website you can really appreciate the new design. It's simpler and even more powerful.
Kroll: Can open sidebar for instant links, etc
Kroll. Type in search for Ansel Adams. When hit return, can go into regular old Google search. But since Ansel Adams is a common search term, have a new Spotlight search suggeston. Snippet from wikipedia or can go to Wikipedia for full post.
Kroll: If you love tabs, no matter how many open, can smoothly scroll through them.
Kroll: New tab view button - beautiful birds eye view of all of my open tabs.
Too many tabs? Now Safari does horizontal tab scrolling, as well as a thumbnail tab view.
Kroll: Sharing couldn't be easier in Safari. Click share button here and can use new recent recipients button to address it to Craig. With one click, I'm ready to send that image.
Personally, I group my open browser
pages so I never have more than five or six in a browser window.
Kroll: Before I send it, I'm able to add my two cents. Feature called markup. can edit the image without ever leaving Mail.
Kroll shows us zooming in on image and using tracpad to draw on the iage
Kroll: Mark-up is smart enough to recognize this and add an arrow. Really easy to add a comment.
Annotating photos in an email, etc. thanks to markup. Clever, useful.
Kroll: Can create a cartoon bubble, and markup replaces it with an official one. So can add a caption.
Kroll wraps up his demo. And Federighi is back up.
