Looking at WWDC 2024

Next Monday, Apple will be holding it World Wide Developer Conference for the year. It usually marks the time that I destroy my cell phone’s battery and complain about all my dropped calls and message malfunctions.

But every year, I find myself enjoying the prospects of something new.

This year, I’m looking forward to it but my expectations are rather low.

If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses

Maybe it’s because I am getting older or that I am fulfilled in other ways, but I don’t see much need in a lot of the promise that some of the newer technologies are offering.

I like having transcripts for my podcasts.

I like having more cohesive alt messages for my images.

These are good things that really help everyone.

No butts about it. And yes, I gave it two t’s.

I just don’t have any passion for the rest of it. Whether it’s AI, vision, or even an update to how to add contacts to my address book, I’ve been finding myself more and more apathetic to changes in my own technological stack.
