Also added features from WindowsPhone.... I fully expect iOS to adopt a MetroUI like interface soon.. then claim they created it.

hahaha yes! Exactly what I was thinking! I think that if metro UI had apples name or even android it would be the best os but since ms make it they have misconceptions that every ms product is crappy! Wp7 came with intergration first suck it up apple fan boys!!!

Wow.. finally Facebook integration like WindowsPhone, maybe soon they will integrate Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.. and will they make it so Siri understands you the first or 2nd or 3rd time you ask it a question..? Great ! IT has more knowledge.. but if it can't respond to my commands its useless.

Well I was definitely expecting something bigger but I guess I will not completely write it off. I guess the Evo that's been calling my name will get the green light in 2 weeks!

It's not all about Siri, that's only the small part. Stop trolling and look at ALL the announcements.

the difference here, is that Apple just came up with these, so soon they will patent it and call it their "greatest inventions" lol

There Apple goes again, giving the word "features" a new meaning.
3/4 of these "new features" are add-ons, enchancements and revamps, but not new features.

Face Unlock and Android beam are new features for ICS.
Siri was a new feature for iPhone 4S.

The only thing I've seen in iOS6 that is remotely a "new feature" is the Maps app. Where the hell did Apple pull 200 from?

their marketing monkeys they are very good at driving up the hypee for products, 200 features, more like 200 updates for a crap peice of software anyway, WP8 will dominate if it has decent NEW features.

I'm getting dissapointed at Apple. They keep saying that they're adding new features and stuff, but some of the "new" features that they add are already in Andoid (ie. the pulldown notifications and the "new" feature that if a person goes to a website that also has an app, they can download the app from the App Store).
