i have a hard time imagining anything android could do that would be really exciting. today's android 12 felt like a bunch of little updates. in the Pixel6 talk-up, the only software stuff was "more ai" so the phone can know this or that. i find it so boring, so anti-known. it's the opposite of the tech i want.

android like so many other OSes has seceeded a huge amount of turf to apps. what the os is, what it gets used for, is tiny, nearly irrelevant. this, imo, is a critical mistake that consumer OSes have been repeating for decades now: evaporation, letting the cloud services the user accesses become the fore, having no extensible core experience that can be built out & elaborated.
