Big Failure On Stage, Copy-Cat Behavior & Intentional Dissing – All The Drama At The Apple WWDC Event

Yesterday, Apple had its 2015 WWDC event and trust me to stream it live – Apart from the exciting things Apple brought to the table, I particularly enjoyed all the drama that unfolded. So for those who didn’t catch the event, grab your popcorn and your drink and read how it all happened in 3D 😀  (  In order to keep the best for the last, I would be starting with the:

COPY-CAT BEHAVIOR

Yesterday, Apple unveiled the new features that would be coming on the IOS 9 and sorry Apple Fans, many of them are straight from the Android OS and the Windows 8 (But who doesn’t copy, right?)

Meet The New Siri – With the functionality of Microsoft’s Cortana assistant and Google Now.

Apple took out some of  the functionality of Microsoft’s Cortana assistant and Google Now to add to Siri, One of it is, Siri can now search your address book or email to find information and act on it. It will also allow you to set powerful reminders or app suggestions based on your location.

In case you didn’t know, this feature has been  integrated in Google now since 2012 that uses your search history, emails, calendar entries and locations to give you relevant information. The main difference between Siri and Google Now is that the information Siri gathers for you isn’t being sent to the cloud for processing unlike Google Now that sends your information to Google

Multitasking – Microsoft Surface Tablet Incoming.

If you have ever used the latest Windows OS or a Surface tablet, you should know about the multitasking feature that allows you run apps side-by-side or with a 70 / 30 percent split. Well, Apple is copying the exact same thing with their iPad and MacBooks. In case you don’t know, Microsoft introduced the feature in 2012, Apple is introducing it 3 years after.

Power Saving Mode.

Power saving mode shouldn’t be a new thing if you are an Android user, however, this feature is very foreign to iOS users. Yesterday, Apple announced that the power saving feature that would be available on  iOS 9 which would give you three hours more battery life than normal usage when you need it.

INTENTIONAL DISSING

As if the copying wasn’t enough, Apple took several jabs at Android and Windows due to their low adoption rate.  The jabs generated a lot of delight at the WWC event.
They proclaimed that 83% of active iPhone users are running the latest version of IOS while Google’s rate of adoption for Android 5.0 is still at 12% (See the image below)

Windows wasn’t left out, as Apple also claimed that Microsoft has a 7% adoption rate for Windows 8.2   compared to Apple’s 55 percent for Yosemite.

BIG FAILURE ON STAGE

I think the Tech gods wanted to punish Apple a bit for all the Jabs and copycat behavior  –  I was busy trying hard not to laugh so I would not have to explain some tech terms to my dad.
So how did it start?
In order for Apple to introduce its new streaming music service, they made a 90 minutes presentation that had important people like Tim Cook,  Jimmy Iovine (Cofounder of Beats) Drake and Eddy Cue (Apple’s VP) present it….. Oh my days, did it go awkward – I don’t even know where to begin with the presentation – All the aforementioned guys that made the presentation had various hitches with their presentation INCLUDING DRAKE! (What i mean is, they didn’t flow with the presentation so it was a little bit awkward).
To crown the  not so cool presentation, (now this is the major fail) Eddy Cue wanted to show the New Siri  features, He asked Siri to  “play the song from Selma”. Apparently, Siri was probably being controlled by the Tech gods, she got so confused and played a different song.
Watch the video below:

Moral of the story: None! :p

OVERALL

Here is an overview of all the important things to note at the WWDC event
Apple new OS update would be called OS X El Capitan ( Lol). The name  was California -inspired and would feature various  mouse actions like the ability to make the mouse cursor bigger by shaking the mouse. Also with the Safari, you get the chance to mute a tab with just a tap ( Tab tap . gerrit?  …never mind)

Swift 2 would be the latest version of Apple’s own programming language, to all my developer bros and sis out there, this should be a good news as Apple confirmed that Siri will be an open source. This got a wide applause from developers in the room.

The Beta version of the IOS 9 would go public this July and it will be a free update that will support all IOS devices that got iOS 8.

WWDC2015—iOS9—Beta003-1280x720

Lastly, I think I like this feature more, iOS 9 would now tell you who a mystery caller might be so that you can stop ignoring unknown numbers. ( This is for someone like me – I don’t pick up unknown numbers. To do this, it scans your email what this means is, if the stranger calling you has never sent you an email, it might not work as well. 🙁

There you have it, all the interesting drama that unfolded at the Apple WWDC Event 2015.

By the way, which event made more sense, Google or Apple?

    dem no do rehearsal?
    😀
    Windows superiority over apple is vindicated here.

  2. Sixtools says:

    Apple has long lost the lead as the button pushers in the smart phone industry. It all stated with the release of Iphone 6 and Iphone 6+, now Iphone is just an ostentatious goods, much like an I’d to belong to a clique.

    1. Korede says:

      Very very true

  3. Sir Stevoe says:

    Hahaha epic fail!
    Google of course, any day. Thanks for bringing the drama over here.
    BTW is it OS X El Captain or Capitan?

  4. Sir Stevoe says:

    lol

  5. Badoo says:

    I can imagine the look on their faces when Siri misinterpreted the command. Apple gradually losing it. The major reason people buy their gadgets is for the prestige no like they use up to 50 percent of the features and these guys know it.

  6. George says:

    Apple copies a lot and that kills innovation also what they did with the iphone6 and iphone6+ was not smart at all.
    R.I.P Steve Jobs

  7. Oluwakayode says:

    Apple right now is just running on their past name and glory it won’t be long before it wears away, tho they still have a lot of loyal customers who doesn’t care. I like apple but I think they have to come up with something we haven’t seen or we haven’t thought of before. RIP Steve jobs

    true@ badoo

  9. vjsmiles says:

    So of what essence is it?

  10. vjsmiles says:

    Nothing much to say… But Android does it for me…….. 🙂

  11. vjsmiles says:

    And will forever will…. 🙂

  12. Adaobi says:

    I just laughed like Woody Woodpecker, I’ve never done that in my entire life…thank you Apple for that good laugh.

  13. vjsmiles says:

    And this zombie has started her senseless rantings again 🙁
    Adaobi you no dey Taya

    1. Adaobi says:

      Shirtless wonder, you no dey tire? No wonder you’re the highest commenter…

  14. vjsmiles says:

    Don’t tired to bullcrap though and right now you are loaded full of it 🙁

    1. Adaobi says:

      Whatever helps you exist…

  15. vjsmiles says:

    Like I give an IOTA of a full

    1. Adaobi says:

      Apparently you do care, since you decided to comment on something I wrote days ago. I’m assuming auto-correct got the better of you? Anywho, whatever helps you exist shirtless wonder.

  16. vjsmiles says:

    Don’t you fucking get it:(
    You are as irrelevant as tissue so take the bait and fucking off to hades…

    1. Adaobi says:

      Is shirtless wonder frazzled? Poor little boy, eyah pele, I’ve got some tissues for you. You care too much, that you keep replying.
      Anywho, you’re adamant on making noise – good for you, but I’ve better things to do with my time. Goodnight and good luck shirtless wonder.

  17. vjsmiles says:

    Now she resorted to using vulgar…
    Seems the little rat has fizzled out…
    Once again take the bait n fvvk off..
    You ain’t worth a plate of amala..
    So go feed your siblings with your excreta.. Done with you

  18. Kay says:

    This is interesting. 🙂
    Cmon…..
    I need of you two. 😀

    1. Adaobi says:

      To be honest Kay, it’s quite the farce, but you can’t help the ignorance or stupidity of some folks, so you just indulge them or poke harder without trying too much. So far, he’s wiping himself up into a frenzy, I indulge a bit, then I leave him to stew in his self-imposed anger and his misplaced injustice. He’s rather entertaining…
      The quest to find a shirt is a real struggle, just like his quest to find the “Reply” button.

  19. vjsmiles says:

    That’s shit brush..
    When a little imp thinks she can spew trash then this is what happens
    🙂

  20. vjsmiles says:

    And she resorted to using my body as a yardstick…
    Ho I can bet a £1000 bucks you have smelling pussy go worry boud getting clean and fresh pussy rather than wallow in self pity…
    And for the Fact
    The sexy me can never be compared to your numerous fvvckers
    🙁

    1. Adaobi says:

      Mwuahaha! Keep making me laugh at your misguided attempts at insulting me. Your indifferent approach to the comma is also amusing. Maybe, you should use that £1000 on improving your command of the English language and punctuation.
      Wow, now the shirtless wonder “knows” my sex life?! I’ve no idea if you’re using yours to predict mine, but your psychic/assumption skills are grossly incorrect. Remember what they say about assumption – it’s makes an ass out of u and mption.
      Anywho shirtless wonder, I’ve gotta go out to see my mum, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Let’s hope by the time I’ve come back, you’d have grown some common sense…But, alas I fear it won’t be the case – I’ll keep you in my prayers.

  21. vjsmiles says:

    Yawns +
    You so f*** boring boring Sis
    All this long write up for me?
    You must be so generous to
    Yo think you are worth it…
    Sorry I hit your sensitive part 🙁
    But twas just an advice though..
    Go wash that stench of a p**** with Harpic and maybe just maybe…. 🙂
    Jeune…

    1. Adaobi says:

      As predicted. Thank you for conforming to your stereotype. You’ll receive sense in due time.

  22. vjsmiles says:

    Now she has fizzled out..
    Don’t freak out yet sis
    Enjoying this 🙂
