Mingis on Tech: Apple's WWDC keynote dissected

From iOS 10 to macOS, Siri to Continuity, here's what you need to know about what Apple is doing

So that was a lot to digest, no?

We're talking about Apple's two-hour-long keynote address from the 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference, where execs ran through so many updates, changes and tweaks to iOS 10, macOS, watchOS and tvOS that it was hard to keep track what's new, what's out and what matters.

That's where Executive News Editor Ken Mingis, Computerworld Editor in Chief Scot Finnie and Multimedia Editor Keith Shaw come in handy. Right after the keynote ended, the trio sat down to hash out what's important. (And while they were at it, they offered their reax via Facebook live video on Computerworld's Facebook page -- a first for Mingis on Tech.)

Siri arrives on macOS Sierra. iOS 10 gets even more predictive in helping you get through the day. Even your Apple Watch will be more intuitive. The common thread? The weaving of A.I. throughout all of Apple's operating systems and devices.

Oh, and don't miss Mingis' mea culpa on Apple Music, which he pooh-pooh last year and now can't get stay away from (thanks to CarPlay).

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
