  • Apple's VR headset: What to expect and what it will look like

    I have a bunch of VR/MR headsets today.  I think this tech is great, and a slim MR headset could kill off any smartphone/iPhone.  But it can do a lot more than that.  It has the potential to kill off smart watches, TV's, laptops, and more.   If an app is written correctly for a MR headset, then if a user looks at their wrist, they could see that date, time, and more information when they look at their wrist, even if they are not wearing a thing on their wrist.  That's the beauty of AR/VR/MR users can simulate things around them.

    Now if Apples first headset requires that users still have to use their iPhones, then its a fail, well at least until they introduce a standalone version of their headset.
  • Microsoft Xcloud game streaming service coming to iPhone, iPad via Safari very soon

    What kills me is it only took Apple to get to iOS 14.3 in order to support enough of the web app standards, so web apps wouble be able to run cloud game streaming platforms, like Microsofts's xCloud, Google Stadia, Nivida GeForce, or any other cloud game streaming platform.   Apple should have had better web app support, years ago.   Considering the web app standards were finalized back in 2014 (7 years ago).   What a joke.
  • Apple, others seek to obscure sensitive data in Google antitrust suit

    Of course Apple and others want to obscure sensitive data between the agreement between Apple and Google, because who do you think negotiated the agreement between Google and Apple for the 9.5 billion.   Does anyone here think that Google wanted to pay Apple 9.5 billion to be the default search on Apples platforms?   You would have to be an idiot to think anyone would want to pay that much to become the default on Apples platform. 

    Don't kid yourself, Apple was in full control, and knew that they had Google by the balls, so Apple could leverage their platform, and make Google pay 9.5 billion to be the default on Apples platforms, which doesn't look good for Apple.   Especially since Apple has antitrust cases as well.
  • Apple preparing for folding iPhone with Samsung screen order

    That’s why Android tablets have always sucked and failed. Apps need to be different for the different screen sizes etc. 
    Clearly you're not seeing the problem.  If you make an iPhone that can switch into an iPad, and back again.   Then there is already separate iPhone and iPad apps that are basically the same app, only they support different form factors (iPad, or iPhone).    Which app do you run?   Will it be the iPhone version, or the iPad version?  If you think you can run both apps on the one device, then you have an app continuity problem.   If this new foldable Apple device is in an iPhone mode, and the iPhone app is running, and then the user opens up this foldable Apple device to be an iPad device, then if the separate iPad app is running, and that user was in the middle of an email on the iPhone version of the app.   How will continuity work between the two separate apps?   When they are two separate apps today.

    As much as you might hate the way Android supports phone and tablet apps, it's because of Android and Google encouraging it's developers to make one app, that can be any form factor, and it's why continuity still maintains what that user was doing on the same app, when the user was typing in a smartphone mode, and then switches to a tablet mode.   Nothing is lost, only the app resizes and adjusts itself into a tablet mode, and vise versa.

    I hope I made that clear enough for you to understand.
  • Amazon's Echo range updates take the smart speaker fight to HomePod

    Imagine how barren and ugly the IT industry would be, without Apple around to show everyone how it's done...
    Well I would say that since this new Echo Studio is not only cheaper, but offers a lot more.  This Echo Studio supports 3D audio, Dolby Atmos, surround sound.  Plus it can run 3D party apps, play games, and a lot more than any HomePod could ever dream of.   Plus this Echo supports more conectivity options, where as the HomePod only supports AirPlay.

    Honestly I believe this Echo Studio is hitting the final nail in the HomePods coffin.
