1. Apple Bets it All On Siri and iCloud | TightWind →

    My favorite take on today’s event yet. I think Kyle nails it in several ways. Starting here:

    Apple’s hardware is getting to the point where it’s so good that it’s good enough for nearly everyone, so dramatic improvements like a retina display for Macs is a relatively minor improvement for users.

    Like I said earlier, there is plenty in today’s announcements to want but, unless your tasks depend on you having the newest and fastest, nothing to really need

    More importantly, and thus thrust of the post, he really nails what Siri means for the shape of possible future hardware from Apple:

    …Siri could make the smartphone unnecessary for a lot of people in the same way that the iPad makes the PC unnecessary for many regular users. That’s what a disruptive innovation is, and it provides Apple with new, untrod territory to explore. If Siri continues to get better, and makes good on its promise, it will allow Apple to create new kinds of computing devices that do to the iPhone what the iPhone did to the iPod. 

    I agree and think in only a couple of years time we will be in smack-our-head-we-shoulda-seen-that-coming territory largely due to Siri.
