Lay it out there. Mac OS 11 has dropped. Discuss at your own peril!

I wonder how long they discussed, before finally rejecting, Craig making a "This one goes to 11" joke.

He was pretty serious for the most part because, well, jokes just aren't the same without a live audience. I watched Tom Hanks a few weeks ago on Saturday Night Live (Tom Hanks would be the only reason I would ever turn that crap fest on) and it was just … difficult. I know he wanted to be funny, but it just doesn't work without the audience.

Craig Federighi is usually a laugh-a-minute kind of guy, and I think he knew full well it wasn't gonna work, so he limited it to the getting high portion of the naming spiel.

Which I explained to my sons, they asked to re-watch that clip, and they thought it was a beautiful bit of trolling.

Yeah… he seems so much more natural and pleasant to listen to in front of a crowd. Kind of a bummer.

I honestly didn't expect the keynote format they used. I figured they would just do a no-audience with the usual on-stage method, and just look directly at closer cameras or something. The production quality was good, just not what I was thinking they'd do.

I thought the transitions were… a little corn. Maybe I'm too old for that. Maybe it's fine if they only do it this way once, as a fun special touch.

Tim and Craig were a tad too artificial in places. I think it'd have been nice to have less greenscreening.

This thing was filmed weeks ago. It was not "live".

Yeah, that was my point. I was expecting a live no-audience keynote with the standard format.

It’s great to see Safari’s tracker blocking getting better. I would love to use it, but almost none of the major privacy extensions I use in Firefox are available in Safari today (uBlock Origin is the one exception). I think support for the WebExtensions API will help, but the lack of containers is still a deal-breaker for me. Sigh, here’s hoping…
