This thing is flat-out amazing, and I’m sorry I waited so long to get one.
Apple has a knack for building things under our noses over the course of years… actually, even decades. They’re really good at building onto their technology when it works. When it doesn’t work, they throw it out and start over, only to build it up in the way that matches their final vision. We saw this happen with the M1 chip. It took them more than a decade, but they finally cashed in on their vision. I think we’re about to see that happen again at WWDC 2021.
Apple never announces hardware updates at WWDC. They only talk about the software and things that developers care about. The new hardware always comes in the September/October timeframe. I don’t understand why the press continues to think Apple will release new hardware at WWDC.
Yes, they talked about Apple Silicon, and they gave you a good guess about when it’s coming out - but they didn’t announce anything that you can buy, yet.
How is it that Apple has followed this formula for more than a decade and people still don’t get it?
Probably the toughest and most mind-boggling thing about any cloud profession is that you could easily spend your entire career working and learning about one of the cloud providers, such as Amazon or Azure.
But the reality, in practice, is that CIO’s want you to know them all. Why? They just don’t feel comfortable with “all the eggs in one basket.” But they’re more than happy to pay one person a fraction of their worth to have to know how to do them all.
That part kind of sucks.
