The later it is, the better it will work.Same with larger screens, cut and paste, etc.
A common misconception. Apple stuff is for everybody when can see with their eyes and feel with their hands what the best and sexiest hardware is. So in the neighborhoods I frequent in LA, I see many, many iPhones in the hands of Latinos and Asians, both men and women. I don't get into South Central or the other 'hoods much, so no personal data from there.Any white yuppy bias in the demographic is probably economic and historical rather than psychological. Apple-like...
Right, some realism, thank you.However, the thought that the headphones represent Apple's audio entry into wearables has occurred to many, including me, and then the first thing you need to add under that idea is that the quality of the headphones will be given the Apple treatment, so Beats' current quality is irrelevant. They have managed to make it acceptable, ok "cool," to wear headphones out in the world, next we're going to do that with the displays as well, etc.In...
Yours is the second post in this thread, and it says:"Dr Dre is going to be an Apple executive. Cook has lost his fucking mind."Yeah, you could stand some broadening.
Like I said elsewhere, Apple is buying into at least two cultures of the future with this purported acquisition, plus the decades of experience that the principles have proven in establishing the cultures.Headphones are the "devices" (your term) of the future as well, along with other wearables. Phones and Pods are going to be less important than wearables. (I'm including wearable screens in this formulation.)In short, Apple is buying a piece of the next generation, both...
True, I hadn't thought of that. I'd be saying the headphones are way off on the high end, because I'm way off. Maybe Apple could make them tunable. And tone down the plastic while they're at it.
Watch the interview again, 'cause you missed the main point about the headphones. Iovine is saying that the weakest, deadest link in the MP3 platform was the little white earbuds.For the kids we have now!You and all the audiophiles in the world can't change the nervous system requirements of the urbanized global young which needs the bass and the beat (get it?) in their soundtrack to be there in front, not buried somewhere deep in the back the way literate Europoids prefer...
Still struggling after three days and how many posts of mental/emotional handwringing?Watch the Jimmy Iovine interview with Walt Mossberg again and listen carefully. If you don't see the workings of a mind that understands media culture at the highest level—and one with 40 years experience at the front lines of generational change,—if you don't see that then you are showing yourself again to be incapable of rational thought. I say "again" because of your usual MO here:...
Agreed, I was being sarcastic about Hockney, since the topic was technology vs. "authentic" artistic struggle. He's done wonders for the iPad as a serious creation device.
I give up. I can't top that ^ . Was it an Ampex? But I do remember the commercial, the American version anyway. What was the commercial TV in the UK at the time?
