WWDC 2017: What to expect

TwitterFacebook

A decade ago, the late Steve Jobs stood and sat at a desk on stage at Apple’s 2007 World Wide Developer’s Conference for an hour and a half, master of ceremonies for the unveiling of OS X Leopard and, most importantly, the first glimpse of iPhone OS 1. 

No one could have envisioned what would happen with the iPhone as a development platform. Even Jobs didn’t seem to know what he was about to unleash. All he offered third-party developers was the ability to build web-based applications for the still-untested smartphone that would launch a few weeks later.

Dear smartphone companies, please give us smaller phones

TwitterFacebook

Let’s face it: Phones have gotten too large. 

Ever since the advent of the smartphone, the dimensions of our pocket-sized communication devices have increased at a rate that would suggest cargo pants are roaring back into style. Because before too long, that’s the only place your fancy new phone will fit. 

And that’s a problem. 

It’s a problem that texting is now a two-handed affair. It’s a problem, for that matter, that doing practically anything on a smartphone is a multi-handed exercise in balance and dexterity.
