    There’s got to be a market for it now that Samsung has finally dropped the headphone jack.
    I use wired headphones all the time. Since I got a wireless charging pad I haven't been annoyed by the fact that you need a dongle to charge and use headphones simultaneously. But everytime I fly long haul I have to remember to bring my old 3.5 mm jack earbuds or else I am stuck using those horrible freebies from the airlines.

    I have heard that next year's iPhone will be the next generational change. I will keep my X until then.

    I have the X. Unless my battery starts crapping out, I'll wait for the next upgrade.

    The same thing happened with desktops/laptops. For many years there was a huge advantage to upgrading frequently due to speed, hardware changes, etc. but now the typical laptop has all the power you need for 99% of the things you do and the yearly updates don't make much of a difference. I have a 3-yr old MacBook and it works great. I have computer replacement money coming in January, but I don't really need a new computer.

    The new iPhone 11 is even more waterproofy... IP68 rating (compared to IP67 on the iPhone XR). Now you can sink the iPhone 11 down 4 meters for up to 30 minutes (compared to only 1 meter for up to 30 minutes with the old iPhone XS/XR).

    Intel has been sucking when it comes to making better/faster CPUs. The Apple CPUs (A12, A13) are starting to pull ahead. Even the new entry level iPad that was announced today makes Windose laptops look bad:

    The new 10.2-inch Retina display iPad has nearly 3.5 million pixels and a wide viewing angle making it a vivid canvas for creative expression and perfect for immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences that take advantage of its enhanced cameras and advanced sensors. Featuring the powerful A10 Fusion chip, the new seventh-generation iPad brings up to two times faster performance over the top-selling Windows PC for powerful multitasking and smooth gameplay in Apple Arcade.
    https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2019/...arting-at-329/

    All starting at $329. ($299 for edu customers)

    So maybe you should get one of those iPad Pros instead of a new computer. That will play solitaire faster.

    Just that. Some local fan boys chatting. Feel free to correct the impression, if it is in fact incorrect. But either way I think I am keeping my X until at least the next release.

    You must not travel much. I don’t want multiple headsets and Bluetooth pods die way to quickly for all day use. Especially if you’re on an international trip. Plus Bluetooth buds don’t have noise canceling capabilities. At least none that I’ve found that are worth anything.

    The lightning connector is technically a headphone jack. I just don’t use it even though I have the dongle thingy in case I ever needed to

    Traveling 3 hours or less is probably fine. Cross country flights are a no go the last 90 minutes of the flight. Being on a 8 plus hour international flight with non-noise canceling headphones that only hold a 5 hour charge is awful. I have a dongle or whatever, but it’s annoying.

    I have two computers at work: a one-year old Windows desktop PC and a MacBook Pro. Both with 3440x1440 ultra wide screen monitors. I have a brand new Mac Mini at home, also with a 3440x1440 monitor. All three monitors are about six months old. They are awesome.

    I have 1TB of google drive storage because of google fiber, so I use the backup and synch utility to store all of my docs on google drive and they are automatically synched to all of the computers. I can also use TeamViewer to remotely connect to each computer for whatever reason. Very happy ... errr ... geeked with my setup.

    Yeah, it is time to upgrade to your desktop. I suggest you get an iMac Pro or Mac Pro with, say, 128GB of RAM. And throw in a HomePod.

    I can't believe you are using a google drive. Make sure you are encrypting everything so Google doesn't help themselves to the contents of your files.

    I used to run Windows on my mac using VMWare Fusion. Huge PITA. So now I use the desktop and when I need to run windows software on my laptop, I connect to the desktop computer with TeamViewer. Works great.

    Apple rejoins $1 trillion club

    Apple has reclaimed its spot in the $1 trillion club.

    Shares gained more than 2.6 percent Wednesday morning, running the iPhone maker's market capitalization back above $1 trillion for the first time in 10 months. Apple has at least a $1 trillion valuation when shares are above $221.28 apiece. Microsoft ($1.03 trillion) is the only other U.S. company that is a member of the elite $1 trillion club.

    Wednesday's gain comes a day after Apple announced its streaming service would be priced at $4.99 a month, and said it would release three new iPhones and upgrade other products.

    “The pricing of Apple’s streaming TV service at $4.99 per month is a ‘show stopper’ and a major shot across the bow at the likes of Netflix and Disney among others,” Wedbush Securities said in a note following Apple's special event on Tuesday.

    Apple shares have gained 41 percent this year despite facing headwinds from the U.S.-China trade war.

    We are reaching a point of feature saturation in smart phones.

I have a 3-yr old MacBook and it works great. I have computer replacement money coming in January, but I don't really need a new computer.
    Well, it looks like the cat is out of the bag. Here is why you will need that supercomputer in your pocket... The next step in wearable computing done right (LOL@Google):

    Project StarBoard: New Evidence of Apple AR Glasses Emerges

    They must be close if they left all this in there.


    Despite rumors to the contrary, it seems that Apple is still working on its augmented reality glasses. In fact, StarBoard — the programming framework that supports the device — has been left untouched in the final version of iOS 13 and iOS 13.1 beta.

    Apple developer Steve Throughton-Smith and 9to5mac’s Guilherme Rambo found the whole StarBoard system shell that runs stereo augmented reality apps in iOS 13.1 beta 3 and iOS 13.0 golden master, the final version of iOS 13 that will ship on September 19. This follows the discovery of some AR glasses evidence found nine days ago.

    Apple even left a readme file in the iOS 13 golden master directed to its employees, telling them how to run the StarBoard apps without using its AR headset:
    [...]
    This confirms a March 2019 report by the most reliable Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo:

    “Kuo says that the glasses won’t have their own graphics processor or CPU, rather relaying on a connected iOS device to drive the AR experience. Apple’s AR glasses will only carry a display, camera sensors, and wireless connectivity electronics, making them lighter and less battery hungry than Hololens 2 and other headsets. Also, it will make them less expensive than the competition.”
    [...]

    Of course, The Dude will tell us that wearing Apple AR glasses, like wearing AirPods, will make you look like a dork. Of course, it seems the only ones laughing now about the AirPods is Apple and its stock holders... all the way to the bank. This is just yet another market that is ripe for Apple to dominate.

    Haha. The author of that article agrees with me.

    I don’t know about you, but I find this all a lot more exciting than yesterday’s presentation, which was an utterly boring parade of marketing words to dress up a clear lack of phone innovation.
