I would be very surprised if there is even anything in the lab at this point. I just don't see the technology being there to even allow for a reasonable early HW designs. You might as well lump that in with Apple-brand personal wormholes.

I'm sure they've screwed around with it at some point, but probably ditched it because they realized making a Google Glass type product was foolish and wouldn't become a big enough to bother with it.

It’s kind of hard to be behind in categories in which you aren’t.

STOP. PRETENDING. THAT. OPENING. APPS. IS. INDICATIVE. OF. ACTUAL. PERFORMANCE.

 
They have no competition

 

To clarify, for the benefit of viewers just tuning in, you believe that Apple has no competition not because Android is terrible nor because it’s a stolen product, but because Apple is the only company that makes iOS devices, correct? And since there are multiple companies making Android devices, Samsung has competition. Am I right in your interpretation?

 

Apple has painted themselves into a corner. There is a limit to how much they can adapt because they have a significant portion of their user base that is very resistant to change. Ironically, because Apple conditioned them to be that way. 

 

Been in a coma since 1997?

 
Yeah, Apple definitely does not do buzzwords (*cough* retina display *cough cough*) 

 

That ban doesn’t seem to have taught you anything.

Thank you for clarifying. You are completely insane.

 
 What ban?

 

Don’t pretend to be more ignorant than we already know you are.

No, you were banned and it has been lifted.

I wonder how hard it is, i.e. scratchable?

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

That's what I came to ask. The fact that the term hardness or scratchability isn't mentioned once is a huge red flag to me.
