Apple Sept. 10 Event Live Blog - Siri Kicks butt in iOS 7, iTunes Radio, and iWork Free!

Wow, there is a bunch of great news already coming out from the press event today at Apple. Am following the excellent CNET live coverage here. Not only will Siri get pumped up to search tweets and Wikipedia sources, iTunes Radio lets you create custom radio stations. Outstandingly, iWork apps, iMovie, and iPhoto will be free! 

Craig Federighi on stage demoing the new iTunes Radio said, "Now of course at Apple we really love music, and in iOS 7 the Music app is absolutely the best way to enjoy your own personal music collection. But now in iOS 7 we also have iTunes Radio." Sets up a Rush station as the crowd cheers!

iWork is another app set that Tim Cook is highlighting in the event. "We think that iWork is a really key advantage for a customer's productivity, and that iPhoto and iMovie are great for their creativity. No other platform has apps like these. We think all iOS devices are made better if they have these apps." Now free with any new device, but I guess not for existing owners.. :(
