We keep saying that you're joining us in the kitchen: finally we're going to make you a mug of tea. There's some cans in the fridge, too, we won't judge. Just get yourself something, do not under any circumstances take even one pixel of that chocolate cake we're saving, and let's have a natter.
We've looked back at the past quite a bit and we're going to continue now, too, as there's an interesting Apple Museum just opened, but we'll also look ahead.
For 2016 promises to be unique: no other year is going to come between 2015 and 2017. In certain other ways it's going to be a little familiar as we can't predict very much about it yet we can be rather sure we'll be hearing Tim Cook saying "Good morning" a lot and Jony Ive will be saying "you know, at Apple we've always, right from the start..."
The kettle's boiled. Come have a chat about what we'll be seeing, hearing and doing in the next twelve months. Speaking of which, happy new year from MacNN and One More Thing.
