Mossberg: Apple Is Still A World of Its Own →

JUNE 17, 2016

Walt Mossberg, writing for The Verge:

Based on these software features and other announcements at WWDC this week, it’s clear to me that, for better or worse, Apple continues to seek its own path, as it has for decades. Like many other tech companies, it has its eye on smarter software through artificial intelligence, is setting new standards for what interactions will look like down the road, and is looking at ways to disrupt legacy media. But at Apple’s core it is still a company intent on driving its users toward simple software housed in proprietary hardware.

It reminds me of Steve Jobs when he used to quote Alan Kay’s “People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware”.
