First of all, I would like to thank the incredible team at Mashable.Com for today’s outstanding live coverage of the WWDC 2012.

All the information and pictures you see in this article are attributed to Mashable.Com.

However, I would urge you to head on over to Mashable’s site for a more comprehensive look at the amazing technological advances awaiting us via Apple in the coming months.

This is truly the stuff of magic and dreams and, Steve Jobs, thank you for making this superior level of innovation possible in our lives.

    PASSBOOK handles all your tickets, receipts, coupons, boarding passes via the new mapping service.


  • 125 Million Registered ICloud Users
  • 7 billion push notifications every day
  • 150 billion messages sent via iMessage.. Poor phone carriers.
  • 10 billion Tweets from iOS 5
  • 2/3 of mobile web traffic comes from Safari. That’s pretty huge!
  • So, were you blown away? I was! I hear the sound of weeping and nashing of teeth from other tech companies. It’s not pretty.
