Wouldn't it be funny if Apple announces carOS and car at WWDC with a target delivery date of 2023? How would Bloomberg spin that as a failure?
Before Apple even introduced Air Pods, I predicted the next medically-related field Apple would enter was hearing aids. The current state of the art hearing aids are expensive, require a tonne of maintenance, and aren't nearly as discreet, for the most part, as their manufacturers claim. White in-ear buds wired or wireless, are completely socially acceptable now, so their visibility is never an issue and, they're not just for music, PodCasts, phone, etc. Turning them into de facto hearing aids is really just a natural evolution of the AirPod line, especially for our generally vain, aging population (a demographic to which I belong) that is loathe to admit they, you know, are actually aging.Thankfully, I've yet to experience hearing loss, though I'm sure some degree of loss is in my future.
I sure hope someone brings up the topic of water shortages. TSMC has faced production pressures the last several months due to drought in Taiwan yet TSMC, Intel, and maybe others. want to build chip fabs in Arizona when humans really ought not to live given the continual shortage of water. Think i through folks. Think it through.
