First Al Gore on the board, now Michelle Obama speaking at the WWDC. For people saying it had nothing to do with politics, I disagree completely. Can you imagine if they had Melania Trump there speaking? No politician or ex-first lady belongs at the WWDC. It is a developer conference.
"Obama discussed her experiences in the White House, including efforts to address childhood obesity, support military veterans and their families, to inspire young people to achieve higher education and global efforts to help girls attend school. She specifically noted that there are still many areas around the world where girls still aren't considered worthy of an education. "

The iPhone 7 won't satisfy users or analysts because there won't be enough significant changes. A better cpu, more ram, better camera and removing the headphone jack are just minor improvements. Hopefully there is something more than the rumors we've heard, but I doubt it. We shall find out soon enough though. Expect a stock dip.
An artist sketching and a guy playing a guitar? Sure, why not bring in a homeless guy to sleep and pee on the floor and make it just like San Francisco. Get rid of Ahrendts before she Marissa Meyers Apple Retail. The only thing Apple Retail needs to do is double the size of every store, maybe add a cafe and call it a day. Stop worrying about the retail stores and update the Mac Mini, Mac Pro and the Cinema displays which haven't been refreshed in 1860 days as of today.
