Many might conclude that we always have high ideals, but when it comes down to money, we'll always take the selfish option. Perhaps, though, even our high ideals aren't all that high anymore. We've come to accept that the world is something of an ugly place and we'll just try and deal with it the best we can. As long as it doesn't cost us too much, that is. Commentary: The president has long been pressing Apple to manufacture here. Is that what Americans want? A new survey suggests it might not be.
In a few weeks at Apple's developer conference on June 5, it'll have the chance to swing back at Google (and a rejuvenated Microsoft) with its own advancements in iOS for the iPhone, Macbook, Siri AI, watch and maybe even the smart home, But Google has thrown down the gauntlet for Apple in a big way this week, Here's why Apple should be worried -- and why the company needs to bring its A game to WWDC in June, Virtual assistant: Google's voice search tool has long outpaced Apple's Siri, It's more accurate and gives better responses more often than not, The next-gen Google Assistant will soon let you type queries and identify objects with Google Lens (below), You elago leather flip case for iphone 6s / 6 - champagne gold and brown might soon order lunch after having a conversation with Assistant, It's coming to the iPhone, too..

This is different from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, both of which change the contents of that screen when you bring your phone into the car. Google is trying to go even deeper.

Also, those Apple devices update to the latest software version without missing a beat -- something that Google, which mostly lets a bunch of partners make devices -- just cannot do. (The newly-announced Project Treble will alleviate some of this, but phone makers that use their own software layers still won't be completely in sync.). To be sure, Apple has a chance to whip up excitement for its next OS, (likely called iOS 11) in a way that Google's new Android O -- while still a useful step forward -- has not.
