  • Hands on: Getting to know Apple's AirPods Max

    Apple AirPods Max is Expensive. Its costs around 60k in India 

    That's because of India's ridiculous import tariffs. I get there's a campaign for "Made in India" products, and I would love to see more innovators, inventors and visionaries here in India, making those products. But, until that happens, until we actually build quality products, people will continue to import them from outside.

    What I'm hoping is that Apple will have more products built in India to mitigate these exorbitant markups.

    Man, I wish I had disposable income, but living paycheck-to-paycheck as I do, it's not likely I'll be able to get the AirPods Max anytime soon.

    I always find it hilarious whenever Apple comes out with a (when you think about it, not so) radical new design idea or technology paradigm and people mercilessly mock them, only for other brands to follow those very ideas less than a year later. Remember when people mocked the iPhone X for having the "notch"? Now every phone has some variation of it. Remember when people decried Apple's decision to remove the headphone jack from their phones? Now the market is flooded with Bluetooth earphones and speakers.

  • FTC, 46 states file antitrust suit against Facebook, seek Instagram & WhatsApp break-up

    Replace “Facebook” with “Apple” in the headline and see how many of these “Yes!!!” responses suddenly change in the same people defending Apple at every cost.   

    Apple and Facebook are not in the same ballpark; they're not even playing the same game when it comes to privacy and security. Facebook's entire business is built on mining as much data as possible from users and having complete control over that data, all for their own profit. Apple on the other hand has put user privacy and security as top priority. Apple has been transparent about how they use their customers' data, and have built their entire reputation on protecting their customers. With Apple, users are their customers. With Facebook, users are their product.

    It's about friggin' time.

    Personally, I think that there needs to be more oversight and transparency about how algorithms are designed and how they work. Tech giants also need more accountability for how they manage user data.

    One of the things I've admired most about Apple is how they have put user security and privacy at the core/foundation of their mission and methods, whereas Google and Facebook have played fast and loose with user data.

  • Apple debuts $549 AirPods Max over-ear headphones

    I'm glad they didn't put giant Apple logos on the earpieces.
