Once again the hype is so much greater than what Apple can/decides to deliver.
I can't really comment authoritatively on the stock market, but I thought the upgrades were great.
I was hoping for some big change to the home screen/multitasking interface - Mission Control, Widgets, scrollable folders, quick settings access, etc. Didn't get any of that. At least not yet - they've thrown in features after the Beta release and even after the GM, so let's see. But on the other hand they did add some wonderful features. Navigation was iOS' most grievous weakness, and now it looks great. Siri looks more capable, let's hope she's a bit smarter too. Improvements to Notification Center, Phone, FaceTime, Safari, and iCloud look handy as well. VIPs, Passbook, Do Not Disturb, etc. look like useful real-world features.
A solid upgrade, all in all. Combined with neat Mountain Lion features (at $19.99), iCloud enhancements, spec bumps on MacBooks, an awesome new MacBook Pro, and a redesigned Airport Express, and I'd say it was a great showing. Better than last years, IMO.
And yes, I'm glad for the Facebook integration.
