  • Apple pushes 'Carpool Karaoke' launch back to 'later this year'

    sog35 said:
    Apple's decision to announce production of three shows (Carpool Karaoke, Planet of the Apps, Vital Signs) before they're available is a break from the company's tradition of not commenting on unannounced products.

    In my opinion, it's a mistake... and an example of why Apple's normal approach (NOT commenting on unannounced products) is best.  If a concept doesn't live up to the producers' original hopes, let it die a graceful death behind closed doors.
    So its a mistake..........even before you've watched a single episode. Seriously. How clownish can we get.


    I didn't say that Apple creating content was a mistake.  I said that Apple ANNOUNCING their specific plans was a mistake -- out of character with their normal plan of not commenting on unannounced products.

    And stop with the personal attacks ("clownish"); it's unbecoming.

  • Apple hires NASA AR/VR expert Jeff Norris to work on future products

    I was (pleasantly) surprised when Tim made several comments over the past year+ about Apple's commitment to research in AR.

    Perhaps one reason he commented on an unannounced technology was to accelerate hiring -- i.e., let prospective new-hires know that Apple is investing serious money and energy into the passion of these subject matter experts.

  • Apple still experimenting with 'iPhone 8' tech including curved screens, new camera system...

    Still TESTING in April... only 6 months before rollout?  That surprises me; I thought Apple locked down design a long time before announcement and rollout.

  • Just like its waterproofing, fire-proofing & security-proofing, Samsung's Galaxy S8 Siri-P...

    Surprised nobody mentioned Portrait Mode on the iPhone 7 Plus which didn't come out until a month later.
    The original article already acknowledges that:

    "The delay in delivering a key advertised feature is not unique to Samsung. Last fall, Apple announced in advance that iPhone 7 Plus would ship before its Portrait mode camera feature was finished, and that the functionality would be delivered later as a software update. "
