At WWDC 2019, Apple did the impossible and annoyed all the right people

Usually, during an Apple show, I get whiny messages from tech types who want to describe, in bloodied detail, all the things that Apple failed to do. Or just to whine that the whole thing was duller than an accountant's bedspread.

Monday's WWDC was disturbingly, well, different.

First, there was a vacuum. Then, coos and aahs began to arrive by text.

"My watch won't need a phone?" said one techie acquaintance. "That's been one of my dreams for years."

I hesitated to suggest that he should see a different shrink or that I'd had a watch in high school that didn't need a phone. I don't think he'd have taken it well.

Still, the notion that Apple might veer toward the Singularity between man and wrist device clearly excited several of my usual moaners.
