Apple WWDC . . . who cares any more?
June 2, 2014

Or, why should they–or we?  If the images from the current Worldwide Developers’ Conference are any guide then little is on offer.  One reason for ignoring contemporary television and 99.9 per cent. of cinema is that is utterly devoid of merit, in essence a non-stop offering of kiddie litter.  Apple, whose disdain for sceptics of any sort, not just climate change (as presently defined) is well-known, has little now to commend it.  Safari often is little more than a spinning beach ball.  What OS X has is a choice of word processor.  Mellel is the one of choice here but , unlike Windows, there is a choice.  Linux is irrelevant.  So we stay with the increasingly egregious Apple–and its awful keyboards.
