Can any AirPod owners explain their experience? Does they work well no matter what service is being used (iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, personal media, etc)? Can I use them to stream sound from an ATV so I don't keep my wife up when she falls asleep at 8:30?

Amateurs. I'm reminded of a certain bullshiting fuel cell company. Stock pump and dump bullshit. Would love to see some guys like this go to jail.Energous was last at CES in 2015, and claimed that it would be shipping before the end of that year, as well.
Apple will release an iPhone charging mat accessory for cars and desktop use in 2017. In 2018 Apple will release one that works with all their laptops and desktops to charge iOS devices a few feet away. Then in 2019 we'll get the 15 foot wireless charging for homes and businesses. It's so obvious.
Apple doesn't have to rush the best version to market for the next few years because they have exclusivity relationship with Energous.

If the Vega GPU comes anywhere's close to an NVIDIA 1080, I'll be more than satisfied. I honestly thought Apple had given up on building competitive desktops due to using cases with limited airflow and Apple's self-imposed low-energy requirements.
This is the first sign of Apple not only interested in the hardware and construction of an automobile, but also the integration of driver and self-driving vehicle. Seems like a pointless patent even if it's purely defensive. By the time any of this tech will be produced, it will probably be illegal for human drivers to operate their vehicles on public roads.

missing out on a few million sales as anything to worry about either. Meanwhile, "smaller", more nimble companies are throwing stuff against the wall. I don't consider Echo to be a success. I have one and rarely use it. Others mostly feel the same way. Siri seems way behind until you measure how well other AI work. They're all fairly worthless right now so Apple
is only last in a race to weak AI right now.
