Most prognosticators anticipated a new fleet of Mac hardware, namely an update to the Mac Pro, the MacBook line, and iMac. We got some of that. Specifically, we got an update to the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro thanks to Intel's Ivy Bridge architecture. The MacBook Air gets 2.0-GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processors, the 13-inch MacBook Pro gets a 2.9-GHz dual-core Intel core i7 processor, while the 15-inch MacBook Pro comes with a quad-core processor running at 2.7 GHz. But all (ahem) retinas were on the new MacBook Pro with its Retina display. It packs in more than 5 million pixels, for a 2880 x 1800 display--four times the resolution of previous MacBook Pros, and a 220 pixel-per-inch density in a 15.4-inch display. Apple claims the display reduces glare by as much as 75%. Many of Apple's apps have been updated to support the new display (Safari, Messaging, Final Cut 10), and other software makers (Adobe, Autodesk) are working on doing the same.

re: Apple WWDC: 17 Cool Innovations
Can you please stop using the world "Blitz". It is short for "Blitzkrieg", the propaganda name for multiple heinous attacks by Nazi Germany on its neighboring countries. The English language is so rich in words that you do not have to fall back on Nazi jargon to make a point. How uneducated are the folks allowed to be who write, edit, and publish such articles?

Do you know what isn't an Innovation? A really annoying slide show on a website in 2012. Come on Info Week. Stop this childish design so maybe somebody will want to read the content!

This title is a little misleading.

The only innovation I found in this article was the Passbook feature.
