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.

This morning Apple revealed the HomePod, their first "home speaker" - or Siri Speaker, if you prefer.
