    I know we are an Android forum but as we say over and over again, we root for advancement in technology even if it is coming from Apple. Unfortunately I feel like Apple has been still playing catch up. Am I the only one who is feeling that way or is this just my android fanboy bias?

    @bkdodger and @cereal killer you guys are rocking the iphone, were there anything in WWDC that excited you guys?

    I have a Macbook Pro but I am not a fan of the software as much as I am with the hardware.

    I'm looking forward to update 3.0 for Iwatch.. Siri improved hopefully and now can be integrated in 3rd party apps ...uninstall Apple apps ..more 3D Touch across apps ...

    Thanks, glad to have another view. You having an iPhone saw things I glanced over as I don't use iOS so would not know an improvement from me feeling like it is all the same.

    There are a few other things but really need Siri and Al to work better across the board ...

    Ah ah ah! It is no longer called OS X ;)

    I can already hear the calls now...

    "Why is Siri on my mac? I don't want it there! Bring me Snow Leopard back"
    "macOS...what the hell is that? What happened to OS X? Why does Apple insist on changing everything!?"

    Ugh...
