A Decade’s worth of WWDC Keynotes

Technologizer:

Once a year, Apple kicks off its World Wide Developer Conference with a keynote presentation. Many people seem to think they’re famous for involving Apple dazzling consumers with an array of new products, to the rapturous approval of everybody involved.

Which is weird, because that’s not the point at all.

While Apple will announce new hardware on Monday, the focus will be on software – specifically iOS 8 and the next version of Mac OS X.

    Good summary of the entitled, spoiled, ridiculous, whiny, perspective-lacking reactions that we get after every single Apple event. Incredible that a company that is so “dissapointing” according to the pundits and internet commentators is still in business- nevermind being the most successful company on the planet.

    Maybe these kinds of people, who are always disappointed in what Apple does, need to step back and think if there’s something wrong with themselves- instead of Apple. Maybe they can start their own companies, if what Apple does never meets their impossible standards.

      The author has deliberately gone out of his way to list the most negative reactions he could find for every of the events.

      Of course that you can find opinions all over the spectrum for every one of these events. I could assemble a list of reactions for the same events, but pick the positive ones.

      What did I prove by doing so? Nothing, except my ability to quote selectively to sell you a bullshit narrative.

      As for my personal expectations, I’d honestly be content with two hours of charts and Apple Store videos, I don’t care what they introduce.

      The only thing I fear they’ll introduce is a redesigned OS X 10.10 that looks as horrible as iOS7 does. God I can’t fucking stand than unicorn puke of an interface. I don’t want this on my Macs, dear lord please no…

        And then angry commenters on tech blogs generously take time to tell us it’s all bullshit.

        So meta.

          I’m not angry, I just like educating people about the bullshit of the world.

            youre not educating anybody — youre just venting. it’s called “nerd rage”, and youre full of it.

            OK boys. Back it down a notch.

    I am expecting no less than rainbow colored, superintellingent dolphins that can read my mind and carry out my every wish on land an sea. It will be called iPorpoise.

    Anything less would be a tragic disappointment.

    • John V.

      Oh, please not rainbow colored! Anything else but rainbow colored.

        Would you prefer blue dalmatian?

    Brilliant. One thing I’d comment on is that the stock price doesn’t go down because analysts think it’s a snoozefest. The price goes down because traders tend to buy on rumors and sell on announcements.
