Apple let me down: 3 things I wanted to see at WWDC 2017

Apple let me down: 3 things I wanted to see at WWDC 2017

At a jam-packed two and a half hours, Apple's WWDC 2017 keynote certainly wasn't slow going. iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra; the Siri-powered HomePod and new MacBook Pro and MacBook Configurations; the updated iMac and the sneak peek of the stealthily-seductive iMac Pro: this year's Apple developer conference bucked the trend and mixed new software and hardware. All well and good, but I went into WWDC day one with some back-of-the-envelope expectations, and those turned out to be dashed. Here are the three things I wanted to see Apple bring to the table, and why.

Apple’s HomePod sounds terrific – but the Siri Speaker has a big issue

Apple’s HomePod sounds terrific – but the Siri Speaker has a big issue

Surprise: the HomePod may be Apple's physical embodiment of Siri, but there Cupertino firm would really rather you think of the smart speaker as a music system first and foremost.

iPad Pro with iOS 11 isn’t enough to compete with the Surface Pro

iPad Pro with iOS 11 isn’t enough to compete with the Surface Pro

As someone who has uncharacteristically fallen in love with his 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the revelation of iOS 11’s features was like an answer to long-held wishes. An expanded dock, a file manager, drag and drop. These do make the iPad Pro an even more convincing PC, or at least laptop, replacement. But as someone who also owns a well-aged Surface Pro 3, the iPad Pro is still a few leagues away from toppling the Surface Pro and its kin. Because unless Apple makes very drastic changes, the iPad, even with iOS 11, is still pretty much a gigantic iPhone.

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Review: Nothing exceeds like excess

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Review: Nothing exceeds like excess

When is 'more' simply 'too much?' That's the question I found myself asking again and again from behind the wheel of the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, a luxury sport sedan seemingly so intent on occupying extremes that I wouldn’t be surprised if its Italian masters came out with a Vanilla Ice Signature Edition further down the line. Chugging Mountain Dew and challenging horses to straight-line tests of speed from the back of a sport bike might not be in the Quadrifoglio's repertoire, but this sultry turbocharged weapon alternately frustrated or frightened me nearly every time I picked it up, no matter how longingly my eyes caressed its outrageous curves.

The iMac Pro is the gorgeous Darth Vader of Apple products

The iMac Pro is the gorgeous Darth Vader of Apple products

The iMac Pro is classic Apple. Although the flagship all-in-one desktop isn't set to reach Apple Store shelves until December this year, and while it will carry an eye-watering price tag when it does, there's something about the Mac-maker's combination of style, hyperbole, and pure performance that is bound to give desktop computer upgraders pause if they're poised over buying another workstation. Here at WWDC 2017, where the wraps have just been taken off the Space Gray iMac Pro, it's hard to resist its charms.

Siri Speaker up close: this is Apple HomePod

This morning Apple revealed the HomePod, their first "home speaker" - or Siri Speaker, if you prefer. This device has the same processor as the most modern iPhone, no display, and a much more powerful set of speakers than an iPhone. It needs to be plugged in to a physical wall socket and it's able to do a litany of tasks if you ask it - through Siri, of course. Today we're having a closer look at Apple official.
