  • Masimo CEO: Apple users are better off without Apple Watch pulse oximetry

    Only measures two times a day by default? That's absolutely not true. Mine measures numerous times during the day and constantly at night and there are no settings to make it measure less during the day. The only settings even available to change the frequency of measurements are two toggles to let you turn it completely off when in Sleep or Theater modes.

    The one in the AW is a real blood oximeter. Especially compared to that cheap crap you posted. The one you linked has absolutely no FDA evaluation and is in no way whatsoever any better than the AW. There have been numerous professional and amateur independent tests done with the AW oximeter and it is as accurate as any out there, including FDA cleared medical devices.

  • Ordering Apple Vision Pro gets more complex with face scan

    Yup, we've known about the required facial scanning for proper fit since June.
    I'm curious how big of a fiasco it's going to be to go into an Apple Store to demo a unit. They should do it by appointment with a required face scan before the appointment so everything is ready for you to try out. If they're just allowing everyone to come in to wait around in the store for one of the scarce demo units to be available, then having to go through a fitting and set up process along with being trained how to use it, man that will be a disaster with the time involved and so many waiting around to try it. But on the other hand, I can see people going to the store to try it out and being told, oh you have to make an appointment, the next one is in 3 weeks, and that not going over too well with customers either, so who knows.
    At $3,500, no one is really interested in this at all.  So probably won't be any lines of people waiting to try it because people would rather spend $3,500 on anything else.  This product does not solve any problems and AR/VR has never been a popular item for decades.  People don't want to wear googles to run apps or watch movies.  The battery is about 2 hours unless you are physically tied to a power source.  Apple created something that no one really has any desire for.  Maybe super rich people that have nothing better to spend money on.  No one bought iPod Hi-Fi, and that was only $349.  No one bought the $10,000 Apple Watch Gold either and Apple said you had to have an appointment to see it.  The iPhone captured the smartphone market.  This captures no market at all.  Big difference.  I love Apple and have been using Apple products since 1989, but you have to wonder why Apple even made this product when consumers are not really into that product category at all.  Very few consumers use AR for games.

    And remember, most consumers wear prescription lenses so another $150 for special lenses will a big deal breaker, especially when prescriptions typically change year after year for people that do wear glasses.
    Interest in buying it will be low; yes you are right on that point, and certainly wrote a lot in support of it; however that has absolutely nothing to do with the masses of people that will want to try this thing (nor will that change the fact that this will sell out). Interest in trying out the newest and one of the most technologically advanced consumer products on the market? Will be HIGH. Who the hell wouldn't want to try this thing out? Hence my speculation concerning the demo process (not how many people have any desire to fork over that kind of money).

  • Apple debuts third-generation Apple Pencil with USB-C charging

    So hang on.  It’s WORSE than Apple Pencil 2 in every way?  Am I missing something?
    Yes, you’re missing that it’s only $79, compared to the $129 of the 2nd gen. You get to choose, it’s not replacing the 2nd gen.
