During the keynote this morning, I couldn't help but think that Apple's new notification system sounded strinkingly familiar. Android users have already been swiping down for notifications for quite some time now, and while the notifications panel is very bare bones, the Android market is chock full of widgets that display the weather, your email and calendar updates, and more.
Apple seems to have busy secretly installing fancy new features onto our iOS devices. Our latest discovery is the ability to download music you're purchased from the iTunes store that you haven't synced to your iOS device.
Apple is pushed an update to everyone's favorite, "Oh my God, where's my iPhone" app. Find My iPhone just got a swanky update that helps us find our lost iOS devices without crying in the corner for hours and hours.
Still got a MobileMe account? Effective today, if you had an active MobileMe account your service has been automatically extended through June 30, 2012 at no additional charge. After this, MobileMe will cease to exist.
You'll have the ability to move over your MobileMe mail, contacts, calendars and bookmarks to iCloud once it becomes available this fall. And if you purchased the MobileMe box and haven't used the activation code inside, you can get a refund for it by submitting a refund request.
Apparently Apple let a sly one come past us. The Automatic Download sections in the general preferences have been updated to include the new iCloud syncing features. You can now turn off and on music, apps, books and decide whether or not you want to automatically update over-the-air or Wi-Fi.
It was a big day in Apple as the company announced the features of three new products: OS X 10.7 Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud. Hopefully you got to join us for our live blog this morning, but if not here's every photo we took inside the keynote with Steve and the gang.
After introducing the new iCloud-based iTunes in the Cloud service, Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveils his “one more thing” in the form of iTunes Match, a new service which aims to put your music collection in the cloud with no downloading required.

After months (years?) of rumors and speculation, Apple themselves broke the iCloud story in a rare press release last week, making the cloud service an official part of the WWDC 2011 keynote. So what is iCloud and how will it rock your world? Read on…
