We’ve been talking a lot lately about the perks and perils of Microsoft Office, especially the program you begrudgingly used to write your college papers: Word. In what appears to be an unrelated move, Apple just made a whole host of productivity apps free. Get excited for Pages! (Borat voice: “Not!”)
Keynote may not be as painful to use as PowerPoint, but it is still a pretty basic piece of presentation software. You might find it hard to believe, then, that this cute animation was made using the humble piece of everyday software.
Miss the WWDC keynote? Just want to watch it again in its entirety because there is something wrong with you? Either way, you can catch the whole sucker right here. One catch: you gotta use Safari.
