    I'm really looking forward to using the Handoff feature as described during the WWDC conference demo. That has the potential to be a most used feature. What do you think?

    That's amazing technology. Not even sure how they are doing it. It will be interesting to see how/if it works with 3rd party apps

    I'm going to watch the keynote again tonight, I saw it this morning at the office but I was constantly interrupted. I can't wait to get OS X Yosemite.

    I'm excited about it. Getting iMessages on my Mac & iPad was very convenient but it took a moment to load recent messages. I can't wait to download Yosemite. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to do it tonight or wait until beta 2

    Handoff is something that I wanted since we were teased about a similar tap feature with webOS that never got past the Demo

    Looks like I have to buy an iPad after all

    I can't figure out how to make the handoff function work. I have made my wife call my phone countless times tonight hoping that it would all of the sudden prompt on my Macbook. I have iOS 8 running on my iPhone 5s and OS X 10.10 on my macbook pro... Can't seem to find any settings to enable... :-/

    Handoff looks pretty cool, but I guess we will see how well it's executed in the public release

    I'm pretty sure you have to connect the Mac and iPhone via Bluetooth. But mine is not working right. It says it's calling but it doesn't actually call and I don't get a prompt when I receive calls.

    I just got 10.10 installed, getting ready to take the plunge with iOS 8 ... Can't wait to see some of this new tech in action.

    I am pretty sure this feature isn't working yet ... But it does look like they link bluetooth devices via your iCloud account, will be really cool when this feature is actually working.

    Wouldn't that prevent me from using a Bluetooth speaker?

    Ok I just did some more research and they have to be on the same wifi network not Bluetooth.

    You mean Touch To Share? That made it to the TouchPad, but the 2.2.4 update wasn't released for the Veer, so no TTS between it and the TP, but it works with the Pre3

    Correct but since the Pre3 didn't fully release it was basically a tease

    How did it work for you I had a Veer but like you said it wasn't available
