A Few Thoughts On WWDC

June 8th, 2015 · 1 Comment

As I write this it’s less than an hour before the WWDC keynote. This is Apple’s Developer Conference, and it’s kind of a big deal for us. It means massive amounts of speculation on what will be announced. I know the rumor mill is churning with many predictions, some involving new hardware. Honestly, I don’t care about that.

You know what I would love? An temporary end to new featuritis with an eye on fixing many persistant bugs in OS X and iOS. Especially OS X. I don’t care what they call it, just fix the crap that’s been broken since Lion. Is that asking too much? I don’t think so, but Apple may have other ideas. Whatever… just fix it already, Apple.

I really hope this happens, but I have my doubts. I have a wonderful track record of incorrectly predicting many, many things at these Apple events. I hope to break that streak, but the chances of that are probably not good.

I can dream, though, can’t I?

    How about the crap that’s been broken since 10.0, like the Finder ignoring or forgetting user-defined window sizes?

    Or the crap that’s been broken since at least 10.5, possibly earlier (I can’t remember), like inactive memory never being released without running “purge” manually?
