Oh, the APPOCALYPSE! WWDC 2017's opening vid shows how dependent on software we've become



What would happen if all the apps we love and use in our everyday lives suddenly stopped functioning out of thin air? Well, simply put, a true appocalypse.

This is what Apple's opening video spot just before WWDC kicked off depicts, and it's a telltale for our new reality which is fully dependent on the software and gadgets we have in our pockets, vehicles, and homes.

Albeit funny and light-hearted, the video spot conveys a deeper, grimmer message - we are so over-reliant on technology that our world as we know it will crumble before our eyes if humanity's software suffers an ill fate, perish the thought.

If you don't know how to read a (physical) map, then you're screwed lol. That video only shows that people do rely too heavily on their devices

That was one corny video. And, considering that Apple only controls about 15% of the smart phones out there, it would hardly be a disaster if their servers went down.

He probably forgot it because it's been 5 years since it was true. In that time, Apple has done very little that is original, but have become great followers.

As convienent as our technology has made things, I would be fine without it. I would probably miss being able to Google something for information the most.
