Great, great stuff.

Three things:

1) Early on, his talk about Apple spreading their great engineers too thin, having the company trying to do too much, sounds a lot like Google today. 

2) He essentially spells out iCloud — 14 years ago.

3) “If somebody would just make a little thing where you’re connected to the net at all times and you got a little keyboard like an eMate with a modem in it. My god, I’d love to buy one.”

The WiFi was rock-solid during the WWDC keynote. This shocked me for two reasons.

1) It was awful during Google I/O just weeks before in the exact same venue.

2) I had never seen so many MiFis listed in my life.

For all the talk of copying this week, Google absolutely needs to copy whatever Apple did here.
