This week was Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference. I have not attended one of these but would like to in the future. The event starts off with the Keynote. I think Apple has found that more and more non-developers watch the conference and they have made the event more entertaining as time has gone on. In the keynote, they gave a few short demonstrations of the new iOS, watchOS and OS X. I am excited about the new watchOS, I may decide to try my hand at writing an app in swift since apple will now offer native app support. I am interested to see how iOS 9 will know when I am in the bedroom, the kitchen, the exercise room etc. as it did in the demo. I have seen rumors floating around the internet that the new apple tv will be like the base station for homekit and homekit enabled devices will all be hooked into that. I am assuming that this is true and that siri will be able to turn on home kit devices based on that information. With the watch demo, they had siri change turn the lights on in the kitchen. I know some work arounds through ITTT that will allow this functionality, but not anything apple specific. I am excited for the updates to Safari on OS X like tab pinning and volume control right in the browser. I like the side by side functionality of windows as well. I thought microsoft had a great idea with that and am glad to see it come to a mac with a few upgrades like resizing of the windows automatically and the new windows management abilities. I look forward to the updates and am sure more announcements will be made before the fall iphone launch.

I am now 186.2. Down 4 Lbs since I started this challenge. I am super excited about it. I am excited to keep going on this challenge and really get going with losing the weight and getting as fit as I want to be. I worked on my bike over this weekend and will start adding biking to the mix of running and circuit training.
