    Yeah, but it’s nothing like this.

     

    Which was a pathetic attempt at copying the storage from .Mac.


    How is it not exactly the same as this???? Have you ever used the Android one?

     

    And please, .Mac was turrible. I hated it when I had my mac.

    They may not have introduced a single feature that wasn't already a core part of Android, but everyone has to give them  a lot of credit for finally making it this far with iOS.

    It really shows you how much Apple has changed over the past year or two. Finally listening to all their customers for these features.

    iCloud drive is clearly an attempt to duplicate Google Drive from the very beginning of Android.

    Dropbox, SkyDrive, etc.

    Oh, and .Mac.

    Not a single feature... FUD

    It's not as simple as the other "predictive texts". It goes beyond typing "th" and giving you the option of "thanks" "there" "they".  Can you really not see past that?

    Here comes the FUD, doodle doo doo… 
    Here comes the FUD, and I say…
    Get out now.

    *guitar riff*
    I'm just acknowledging that these are already available on other platforms. I have no problem with Apple implementing them, if anything some of them were long overdue (f.e. interactive notifications).

    No, not in the same way.

    You aren't enlightening us- you simply just look like an idiot that everyone shakes their head at and feels sorry for.  Sure, you get a response here and there, but it's always to counter you, and you never "win".

    It's as awkward as someone telling you- in front of everyone at a party- that you aren't invited and no one wants you here, yet you hang around eating your chips and queso in the corner clueless to what just happened.

    I know, it learns your habits and makes predictions even before you start typing the word which is something Android's default keyboard also has.
    I have no problem with Apple implementing the feature, but it isn't new. Which counts for many of these features, but they are still nice additions.

    Ya, I know what it does. It's exactly the same as Google's next word predictive keyboard.

    It also goes beyond simply learning your habits- you did watch the same Keynote that I did, correct?  Did you not see how it gives different predictions based on the relationship of the recipient?  Maybe your internet connection sputtered and it skipped over that.

    It's fairly obvious you weren't watching the demo.

    Predictive text and typing are actually coming from the text messages themselves... and it's learning your response style PER contact. This opens the door for predictive multi-language switching.

    Oh... and no... Google better not have it in Android using the same implementation, because it uses the exact Apple patent that was won recently against Samsung.

    The next word predictive text feature (I can type out entire sentences without hitting one single letter based on previous conversations and contextual information) have been out for years!! It's been a part of the stock Google keyboard for over a year now.

    It's pretty useless. The Samsung / Android douches are the ones who always claim "first".  Me?  I'd rather claim "best"- they can have their "first"

    That blew my mind, man.

     

    Great, now it’ll append “, man.” to every sentence I type to you.

    It really doesn't matter either. Apple can recognize a good idea just as well as anyone else and they'd be silly to ignore one just because someone else thought of it first. Everyone borrows ideas from everyone else in addition to coming up with their own unique innovations. Heck Siri is going to mimic Google Now's always listening feature and use "Hey Siri " the same way Google Now uses "OK Google". Why? Because it's a good idea. Is there a better reason?

    You're describing exactly what the Google keyboard and other 3rd party keyboards have done for a while now. This shows a portion of the Google keyboard settings.700

    Funny how when Apple does it, it's perfectly okay. But when Samsung does it, everyone is ready for war...

    I agree with you, wholeheartedly. It helps the industry more forward. It's just really ironic.

    Nope. Try again. That’s not what Apple implemented. They have CONTEXTUAL suggestions and PER-PERSON suggestions.

    The '172 patent you mention, and particularly claim 8 which is the one asserted against Samsung, is under review with the USPTO signaling serious doubts as to it's validity. That's going to take some time to sort out tho.
