fred1 said:I find it interesting that they announced a product that won’t be available for nine months at least. More importantly it won’t be released until after the Fall product announcements. Why didn’t they wait until then to announce it? Was it all the buzz going around? Or just wanting to get people excited so they won’t look at what others come up with between now and then?
From 8mm projectors to VCR and on… ‘twas ever thus.
Just to be clear for those unaware..
Wireless Carplay does NOT stream music or commands over bluetooth.Carplay connection is initiated over bluetooth, and then a wireless connection is created between the phone and the carplay device.
This is why control and music streaming is indistinguishable from a wired connection.

Wouldn't that partner be more in line with Apple's current privacy stance? Or maybe you have to be in the "Big Tech" fraternity to be considered, or maybe duckduckgo is unable to scale to accommodate such volume for what ever reason...
[email protected] said:This is what the Touch Bar should have been. I loved the concept of the Touch Bar but it is massively underused in programs. I hope they add functionality and user customization instead of getting rid of it.
There's already some preset optons for it to show its power and give you an idea of its uses
And of course it makes the excellent Touch pad even more powerful, plus keyboard shortcuts and a clipboard manager and more...

What is the device’s purpose other than supporting users that don’t have such a smart TV yet?
Unless Apple would positioned it more as a console as well, including an exclusive game line-up?
Plus Smart TV lack of privacy...

My “smart” Sony A8 Oled tv is disconnected from any network ( i connected it briefly to update the tv firmware and laugh at the google tv ads that are put on your smart tv screen...), the Atv 4k is great and updated, and i use a Harmony Elite to control tv, Atv, cable box, optical audio switcher and a B&W soundbar - so i don’t need to whine about the Atv remore either.
