Company has really changed its approach to the media. Although Steve Jobs sometimes referenced Gruber, I am sure under Jobs the only one getting interviews would be established media houses.

Love these interviews. Love the little insights left and right, like how upping the screen refresh rate to 120 Hz required changes in Core Animation to allow more complex animations to run at 30 Hz or 60hz to fit within the shorter rendering timeframe. Great stuff.

at the end when Phil tells John to think hard of any questions he might have forgotten to ask yet I was really hoping he would just ask them about the timeframe on the mac pro.
Like if we can expect it next year instead of their saying "not this year"...

It's really getting to where there are four things that are especially worth watching from WWDC each year:
1. The keynote (of course),
2. The "Platforms State of the Union" presentation (of course),
3. John Gruber's "DaringFireball" live show (for off the cuff / behind the scenes remarks from top Apple folks),
4. The "Accidental Tech Podcast" live show (for John Siracusa's* well-reasoned take on the announcements).

*: he's the one who used to do the book-length in-depth reviews of each new OS X release for ArsTechnica.

I disagree. The pregnant girl who choose her outfit poorly was also pretty energetic and I thought did a very good job.
But that female you are referring to is not the Senior Vice President of Engineering. Craig Federighi oversee's iOS and macOS developments. He would be the Clear choice to discuss the latest developments on stage.

Based on this podcast I say give Craig Federighi a fairly large raise and more stock options.

I've been assuming for some time, he'll be the next CEO. He's articulate, energetic, has the right delivery/timing for some of the cornball jokes, he recovers instantly from any flubs (his own, or technical). Look at this background: he worked with Jobs at Next, he's Berkeley educated with an MS/BS in CompSci/EE, he's got real technical chops combined with being a terrific showman.

He's too technical, not in a bad way, but in a good way. But I don't think he's CEO material.
Saying that, I don't know who I could see CEO of Apple, so maybe you might be right.
Schiller is the 'cool grandad' type figure.

Maybe Johny Ive?

Feddy is definitely one of my favourite people on stage, however.

Also, youtube link:
This same user stole and copied the video last year as well. Did they ask John Gruber for permission? Kind of a dick-move to copy someone's video and throw it up on YouTube.

You listed a ton of amazing and impressive technical qualifications but I don't think Apple needs a technical leader. They need a leader who is good at numbers. Supply chain, customer satisfaction, shareholder dividends, global view of markets and currencies and suppliers, etc. tim is perfectly placed as CEO because he's surrounded by a group of VPs that are highly technical.

Steve's 2nd coming at Apple brought a Jobs that knew he wasn't an expert in these sort of things so he hired Tim, Phil, Jony, Bertrand, and Scott and for the most part, Jobs was big picture about almost every single topic but buck stopped there / first right of refusal for "stupid ideas". He seemed most focused on design than anything else.

Tim was a natural replacement. Jony's role grew, Tim didn't really meddle in the design aspect and everyone rose to more responsibilities.

I don't think Craig, a highly technical person would be the right leader for Apple. Just a gut feeling and very personal opinion.

I hope Craig is in it for the long haul, I just don't know if he's a CEO shoo-in. I'm leaning toward Jeff Williams or Phil Schiller being the guys most likely to be nominated. For the record, I love what Tim has done at Apple and hope he's leading the helm for a very long time and most importantly, has what it takes to step down / retire when the time is right. Nothing worse than a once capable CEO that is now out of their element or too 'semi-retired' to be effective sticking around just because they can. I hope we have Tim at least another 20 years. Being the guy that Steve picked carries a lot of weight with me and how I feel about him.
