    *Makes jibe about not selling data* - *Starts talking about Apple pay straight after, a service that charges a commission on everything you buy.*
  • Deelron - Monday, June 8, 2015 - link

    One is payment processing, the other is personal data. If you can't tell the difference you might be tilting at windmills.
  • Shadowmaster625 - Monday, June 8, 2015 - link

    OpeenGL? Has someone been thinking too long or too hard about Tim Cook?
  • kspirit - Monday, June 8, 2015 - link

    Passbook is now Wallet and Wallet is now Google Pay.

    Not confusing at all.
  • TristanSDX - Monday, June 8, 2015 - link

    No 8'K displays :(
  • tipoo - Monday, June 8, 2015 - link

    I'm wondering, since both OSX and iOS will now use Metal to accelerate built in apps, what will go on with older devices. Some of the iDevices that are compatible with iOS8 already can't use Metal (a5), I wonder if the same will be true with OSX 10.11 compatible macs.
  • jwcalla - Monday, June 8, 2015 - link


    The fracturing of the rendering APIs in the tech space is really disillusioning. As it is now Metal is an even more closed API than DirectX, since it is dependent on Apple's drivers (i.e., it's not implemented in the vendor drivers like DX is). It's politically-motivated. It's platform lock-in. It's depressing.

    Don't worry it's just apple. If they actually do something open you should be worried.
  • star-affinity - Tuesday, June 9, 2015 - link

    You mean like making their programming language Swift open source?
