  • Apple may make smart necklaces, bracelets, and key rings

    Dogs collars for humans? Nice. Make smart nostril ring and smart belt too. They will remind you of something like you eat too much.
  • UK investigating Nvidia's Arm takeover citing national security concerns

    Yes, the issue was raised by many -- including one of the founders.  But I am not aware of any formal investigation into the claims and concerns.

    But, it is certainly a legitimate concern:
    Under Trump, the U.S. was promoting a "look out for #1" nationalistic strategy and attacking other countries by blocking them from using U.S. technology (which ARM would be if NVIDIA buys it).   That foolishness has fallen away under Biden.  But, Trump and his nationalistic approach that ignores any and all prior agreements could be back.  The UK is certainly aware of that.
    (Iran certainly is:  one of their conditions is that the U.S. guarantees it won't break its agreements and promises with a change of administration.)
    What is "nationalistic" about the approach? Do you even understand the word in the context you are using? As opposed to Comintern? I do not buy it as I lived in place like that tried that. Now national security is key to safety of your cozy corner where you are typing it from.
  • AirPods 3 review: An excellent AirPods evolution, but fit can be problematic

    The AirPods never fit my ears!  Always fall off when I move like walking. It would stay for about 1/3 of a block and one them usually the right one would drop to he ground.  The Pro was a little better but not much.  I ordered the Beats Fit Pro to see if they workout since they have the wings to secure it in place which I like.
    I never shove anything in my ears. First it hurts and is far from natural (mother nature designed us to use earlobes properly as "special device" and not to shove something fashionable into them). Second all those earbuds leak sound like crazy and do not give any quality comparing bulky over ear quality headphones from Sennheiser and others. Sorry to run at you, but in a store when I wanted to try Beats and showed what I use, sales person told me not even try. Beats are not even near Sennheissers, but there are even better once on the market that may cost few times iPhone. 
  • AirPods 3 review: An excellent AirPods evolution, but fit can be problematic

    One size (and shape) fits all. Make sure you adapted your ear to device according to Apple and army of fans. On that note, when Apple is going to finally change direction and make either flexible earbuds or provide flexible skin to adapt different ears? You know follow earplug companies that have far more expertise than Apple since they were designing and producing them for at least 10-15 years now.

    Who cares?
    "Who cares"?
    Me!  I care!  I appreciate others who do the things necessary to avoid infecting me and others around them.  And, I avoid places that do not encourage or enforce those precautions.

    COVID is a nasty disease that can affect multiple parts of the body and, even if it doesn't kill you, it can leave you disabled.  I want to protect myself from it as much as possible -- and that includes avoiding those people and places who endanger me.
    Kiddo, Thank you for lecture. We know it. Probably spend far more time living on this planet. Keep your insecurities to yourself. Life will teach you that. Now imposing something on some people may get you hurt in life. So watch out and learn.
