In my case "augmented reality" with AirPods= walking around or driving in an older car that lack CarPlay or even bluetooth and still hearing directions in my ear. Combined with the subtle haptic cues and graphics on my Watch, it makes for getting around pretty easy without having to stare at my iPhone. Super exciting AR use case? No. Useful? Yes.CloudTalkin said:
What the heck does that even mean? Audio AR?
"yes Windows updates are garbage but malware is more prevalent only because so many people use Windows, and the Windows interface hasn't been terrible/inconstant (this is subjective I know) since Windows 8."
1. If you're a pro and can't be sure when you'll be without your main tool because Windows decided to take over for three hours, that seems pretty disqualifying to me.
2. It doesn't matter why there are more viruses that are far easier to be infected with, it matters that there are.
3. This.... Hot. Garbage.

It continued work with Microsoft to do this, but as soon as Microsoft felt it could do better on its own, Gates' Microsoft dumped IBM and launched its own plans for Windows.”
MSFT worked with IBM on OS/2 and then backed out to focus on Windows instead. But IBM launched PS/2 on its own, only to get undercut by the rest of the industry that kept shipping faster old PC clones.
PS/2 introduced the standard for mini-DIN keyboard and mouse connectors, which is why they were still called that up until USB.

I don't mind paying a small premium for that as long as the build quality is there, but double retail? Uh, no.On an unrelated note, the Xserve lived on to a 2009 (not 2006) model that was only discontinued in January of 2011. We still have two in heavy use at my job.
jdiamond said:So glad you wrote this article - glad to find out about this hub. Certainly looks less "Hideous" to me than the other hubs out there. You missed two important features of the hub, though:
1) You can hook a hard drive up to the USB-A port and charge at the same time. There is no penalty - it reads and writes files at the same speed, whether on the USB-C port or the USB-A port, both at 5 gigabits (USB 3.0 speeds). And USB-C to USB-A cables are ubiquitous.
2) It not only supports HDMI, but the USB-C port also supports Displayport 1.2 with HDCP! (But only up to Full-HD resolution.) . But now you really can't charge at the same time.
