It's an internet reflex to declare Apple finished, but we can't help wondering whether this week's WWDC, the most interesting one in years, is going to quieten the howls of doom somewhat.

There's stacks of interesting stuff including third-party keyboards, huge improvements to messaging, a really clever feature called Continuity that moves seamlessly from mobile to Mac and back again, and a new app called Health. No sign of the iWatch just yet, but we reckon we spotted plenty of not-so-hidden hints.
OS ten ten point ten
The news that Apple is calling OS X 10.10 "Yosemite" caused a flurry of "how to pronounce…" Google searches, but the named-after-the-place-not-the-cartoon-character operating system is much more than a name lots of people can't say. There's ammunition for Apple fans and foes alike, from the excellent iOS integration to what looks awfully like Windows Vista's Sidebar.
