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).

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
