Apple Vision Pro black eyes, dinosaurs, and Apple's mastery of logistics on the AppleInsid...

in General Discussion edited April 12

It's not true that Apple Vision Pro will routinely give you black eyes, but maybe it is true that Apple could be doing more immersive video. Plus we have no iPads yet, but we think we know where they are.

Dinosaurs on Apple Vision Pro

One of your hosts is wearing an Apple Vision Pro but neither of them have black eyes. Wes Hilliard explains how a user managed get some, and also exactly how when Apple is so careful about getting a comfortable fit for the Apple Vision Pro.

Then there's the case of the missing iPads, as new ones have been continually rumored and we're even seeing them listed in regulators' databases, but they aren't here. It looks like we'll see them in May, and the reason is partly down Apple's famous understanding of the logistics of how to ship millions of devices.

Also in this episode, Apple has now allowed classic game emulators onto the App Store -- yet it's still such a gray legal area that you're going to be waiting a long time for many classic games to be emulated.

BONUS: This week's AppleInsider+ for subscribers leaves the news behind and dives in deep to how we use technology when we're planning a trip.

    This is for William:
    Tim Cook always says: “This is the best iPhone we have made”… even if he knows the next… but it is not yer build.
    But to know the real reason… remember —or learn— the story of the Osborne 1 computer.
    They announced at launch of the Osborne 1 the virtues of the Osborne 2… so no one bought the Osborne 1-

    This is for Wes:
    The reason why Apple did not allowed any emulator was… mainly… because Apple could not check what you were going to run on it.
    They did not allow even the HP-41 calculator… because you could download a ‘malware program.’

    On… last minute's changes… Long ago, an Apple chip designer said that… they set the specs 3 years before the launch. So… the chip design for the 2024's iPhone was set down in 2021!

    On air cargo versus sea cargo. Back at the end of the century… Apple was almost in survival stages. And they used air cargo for almost all devices. On the other hand… they just were selling a few of them. Then they went sea cargo. And then, when they took away the larger from the iPhones… they increased the number of iPhone per container by 70%!

    To Wes… Remember that the original iPhone's keyboard was ‘usable’ due to Machine Learning. The meaning of Machine Learning is that the… the machine is learning about you!
