After studying Apple’s postcard and its by-line, I see a yellow box with a blue stripe down the middle. Yellow is absent in the rainbow of color which to me, as an artist, indicates we are seeing all colors of the spectrum except Yellow, which means the box is yellow.
Rhapsody’s Yellow/Blue box was the stepping stone to OS X from PowerPC architecture. Yellow box was OS Xs native object oriented API framework. The Blue box operated PPC applications in a window.
Could this be the moment Apple unveils Copland? The OS that was supposed to follow Rhapsody, but never made it out of the lab?
Copland for iOS and OS X hybrid?”
Okay, so it wasn’t Copland, or was it? I’m not a coder or programmer, but…
Swift could be considered an OS X/iOS hybrid programming language Apple is pursuing as a means to bridge a gap for all of its devices.
In retrospect, I was glad to see Apple didn’t complicate the developer’s lives by introducing more hardware on Monday.
Instead Apple enhanced their lives by extending the usefulness of Apple’s existing software, which will equate to an even better experience for all Apple consumers.
For the last few years I have been hoping Apple would drop OS X’s naming convention for Big Cats and opt for birds instead, which in my mind would be plausible as a bridge between earth-bound Cats and satellites in space, which I believe is Apple’s next frontier in their vertical market.
Swift is a bird and now a bridge between OS X and iOS.
