    iOS 8 just blew WP8.1 out of the water and I'm a MS fan.
    Be real man, iOS8 is HUGE

    Now that they have Beats, its probably going to be an even better stunner. I'll wait on the highlights and details.

    Many of the new features are a copy of 3 party apps/other OS (swiftkey, mic option in message, ability to send video and voice messages,...)

    Word flow is a copy of Swype. Cortana isn't an original idea either. Action center, notification center....I can go on and on

    iOS 8 actually has a lot of new features. They're doing a nice job keeping things well-integrated. Microsoft has to speed things up.

    Lol what? The biggest thing that I hear people talking about is predictive text. PREDICTIVE TEXT. My 3 year old Android had that. Its a solid update, no doubt, but nothing very impressive.

    Exactly. This conference just cemented the fact that WP team moves at a really slow pace. Apple could achieve this much in a year. WP took 2 years to get WP8.1 out and it's still playing catch up. Sigh

    Microsoft is seldom original. They take other ideas and drastically improve upon them.

    What's impressive about WP8.1 (Genuine question) cause most of the features(all of them actually) are available on other OSes.
    I love WP very much, but you have to be realistic. iOS8 is really great

    You realize the lifespan from WP7 to 8.1 versus iOS, right?? Give them a little more credit than that. ;)

    The problem is, Microsoft won't do anything about speeding up anything. If WP was stacking paper maybe. If its market share wasn't staring down the barrel of a 94 percent split between IOS and android they might be encouraged to move quicker.

    That said, I won't undermine this. Were the OS not hideous and threw phones not miniscule, I'd be sold

    Did I just hear them wrong, or are they even more deeply using Bing in iOS?

    The continuity sold me. I am going to love being able to respond to text messages, recieve phone calls, and pick up right where I was on my iMac, iPhone, or iPad. IMO it completly blows MS integration out of the water. I'm very curious to see how Google responds and am somewhat disappointed the all of MS's cards are showing. Just when they finally catch up, Apple makes me want to go full on iOS.

    Photo folder in messages is pretty cool. Quick action in notification center is cool as well. The location and mute thread feature we have already. Apple is doing a good job. I'll still be with windows 8.1.

    Meh - tried to use OSX - not into it. The end all / be all will be later this year when MS unveils Threshold - If it allows actionable live tiles (RE: widgets) to be pinned to desktop, and apps play across desktop ->tablet ->phone, and app stores are merged, etc - that will be the big kicker. The apps need to scale across devices, and sync. Right now, I feel IOS8 looks ok, but meh......those home screens are boring to me

    But, like clockwork, they roll out once a year, and about 90% of apples mobile device users get the latest and greatest IOS should they choose to install it. Nice.

    I will say I was impressed by iOS 8. I may be digging up the ol' 5c and definitely checking it out. Actionable notifications is the one thing that really caught my eye as well as a few other small details. I'll have to take another look at all the features of it, as I was just glancing through at iMore.

    Yes, I'm sure the 5% of the planet with a Mac will be happy. Unfortunately, they are a small minority.

    I don't know how much bigger an update they could have done. This is at least as big as WP8.1, probably bigger when all the related pieces are totted up. Last year's iOS7 was a bit of a disappointment, but in retrospect it was their WP7->WP8 style transition where everything was going on under the hood (going from 32 to 64 bits). As big as WP8.1 was, it's pretty clear that Microsoft is still just treading water. I'm curious how much of iOS8's sheer magnitude is due to Apple's new programming language - it hasn't been released into the wild yet but I'd be very surprised if they haven't been using it in-house for awhile now. Objective-C was a stone-age programming language with some good ideas under the hood; their new Swift language looks like it keeps the underlying goodness and yanks the rest of the language forward into the modern era alongside C# and Java.
