“When it comes to a WWDC, far too many alleged tech and financial pundits just don’t get it!” Gene Steinberg writes for The Tech Night Owl. “Consider the letter “D” in that acronym. It stands for ‘Developers,’which obviously refers to people who are creating software for one of Apple’s platforms. Despite the implicit purpose of the conference, there are constant complaints whenever new hardware isn’t announced.”
“It is true that new hardware is sometimes demonstrated,” Steinberg writes. “Some new Macs, such as Mac Pro, that workstation that caters to power users, scientists and content creators, have been launched at a WWDC. But hardware is not a normal part of the agenda.”
“That takes us to the software,” Steinberg writes. “What about all those improvements to watchOS 3, and how they overhaul the user experience? You didn’t know that? I’m not an Apple Watch user, but Apple’s site and media outlets that cover Apple have detailed the changes and improvements. Many of the complaints about performance and usability appear to have been addressed. Articles about the beta are promising. The third time does appear to be a charm.”

MacDailyNews Take: Same as it ever was. There are those who just can’t – or won’t – see Apple’s paradigm shifts even when they are demonstrated right in front of their faces.
