elijahg said:I don't know that AR is really any more popular than VR... I've seen much more hype about AR than VR. I think AR is probably more useful, but VR is more impressive so gets more press coverage. In any case both are pretty cool, but I am yet to see a particularly compelling AR app that has me coming back for more. It's more a tech demo of "look what this does", never to be used again.
It isn't an opinion on whether VR is neat or not.
crowley said:Google Cardboard works pretty well for any VR that you'd want to do with a mobile device, and is compatible with iPhone. The kind of VR that the HTC Vive and Oculus offer isn't coming to mobile for a long while, if ever. There wasn't any need for Apple to rush in.jdb8167 said:hentaiboy said:Apple has had its flops...
The Newton had a significant number of orders for vertical applications that were never fulfilled once it was effectively killed. We will never know if it could have been successful if Apple hadn’t stopped its development. On the other hand, having stopped the Newton, Jobs laid the path for iOS and iPadOS. If the Newton OS had remained viable, perhaps that doesn’t happen and Apple would not be the same company today.
kitchenbox said:So Apple ended up supporting the flop that is HTC's Vive Pro standalone headset on its desktop macOS Mojave.
Guess that was a flop.

I am more interested in getting infrastructure for rural areas to have access to better internet speeds vs just having training available.But what does subsidizing the small % of people in remote areas have to do with creating jobs?Building modern, competitive data links where companies can use them and lots of people can be gainfully employed is pretty critical to the US remaining relevant as China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and elsewhere build out centers of high tech investment.
