I predict a large increase of torrent users, and 4K/x265torrents of this content. Just like CBS is pushing all Trekkers to torrents, with their attempt to force subscriptions to their loser service, so will Disney cause the same paradigm shift - particularly since The Pirate Bay now allows direct streaming of content.
Agree regarding Apple Search being the common failures point (which is why I always laugh when non experts ‘predict’ how Apple will eat Google’s lunch if they ever enter the search arena). On the other hand, in restricted use cases, like CarPlay or AppleTV, Siri really shines. Again, because it’s a restricted environment. The other thing Siri (and otter services) really need, are incremental updates - not yearly ones. Upgrades to content and ‘smarts’ should be pushed out monthly or quarterly. Not yearly - the yearly upgrade cycle is plain dumb and myopic.
... and then there's the typical apologists that always have 'explanations' for Apple's pure marketing/greed driven motivations.
