“Apple’s WWDC 2014 could well be the most important statement of intent it has ever made,” Sanjiv Sathiah writes for Electronista.
“Without a single new device on show, Apple has launched its biggest assault on Android yet. The scope and breadth of innovation and software development on show was breathtaking and shows that Apple has a crystal clear vision of where it is headed and how it wants to get there,” Sathiah writes. “It used numerous statistics to emphasise its numerical advantages over Google’s Android platform, while bringing the full weight of its creative power to bear.”
Sathiah writes, “It unleashed a wave of unprecedented software innovation in the stunning new Mac OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 that was then driven home with the announcement it has developed a brand new computing language, Swift, for developing iOS apps… Apple has demonstrated that it will not yield on any front. It has clearly committed all of its available resources to move the company forward in a way that I suspect would have made the late and great Steve Jobs extremely proud. As Jobs said when resigning as CEO in 2011, “I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it.” After seeing Apple’s outstanding WWDC 2014 Keynote, I have absolutely no doubt that, like many other things, Steve Jobs was right.”
