I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

OTM. Wired audio is disappearing rapidly.

Again, look at how often people below the age of 25 purchase wired audio...or compare the number of Bluetooth speakers vs. wired speakers purchased last year.

Brevs Mekis (dandydonweiner), Wednesday, 21 September 2016 11:58 (one week ago) Permalink

makes sense, the natural format of audio is flying through the air. why constrain it in these little wires longer than necessary?

Part of why this is slightly misleading is that you don't need to buy new wired speakers all the fucking time, which is the problem. I've already owned three portable bluetooth speakers and a 30-pin connector speaker in the amount of time I've had my wired speakers. Yes, from a business perspective that's great for the manufacturers, but it kind of sucks for consumers. The convenience of the portable bluetooth speakers (which in my case are like $50-80) is still a nice supplement to having better wired speakers, like if I just want to put something on quietly in the kitchen for my kids, but I would never shell out for expensive bluetooth speakers that I can't trust will still be usable in 5 years if the tech changes again. And for the same reason I'm really not interested in getting nice bluetooth headphones, not to speak of W1 headphones made by lolbeats.

And there is definitely a ceiling for the proliferation of expensive disposable tech. The watch is always going to be more of a specialty item than the phone, for example, unless they find a way to make it seem necessary, the way having a smartphone seems necessary today.

the last famous person you were surprised to discover was actually (man alive), Wednesday, 21 September 2016 13:48 (one week ago) Permalink

another reason that i am bummed about the headphone jack is that i plug in my phone to my wired receiver all the time

marcos, Wednesday, 21 September 2016 13:53 (one week ago) Permalink

but yeah, feels like headphones have become disposable garbage products ppl expect to replace

It's actually been going the other way with headphones -- sales at the high end have been increasing for years now. I think that's one of the reasons there's been so much complaining about the loss of the headphone jack: lots of people have very expensive headphones that don't work directly with the iPhone anymore.

i'm saying if apple's going to replace something so ubiquitous it needs to meet expectations that the replacement won't be worse than what they had

Not to defend Apple, as I'm not happy with the missing jack either, but to be fair the adapter isn't "the replacement" -- wireless and Lightning are the replacement; I'm sure they consider the adapter a temporary bridge for people not ready to make the leap yet.

early rejecter, Wednesday, 21 September 2016 13:59 (one week ago) Permalink

definitely curious to see what sales #'s are like -- preorders were apparently multiples of past years at certain carriers, but lines were short at stores.

high end users are also the type of people who carry around a portable DAC/amplifier xp

龜, Wednesday, 21 September 2016 14:30 (one week ago) Permalink

FWIW The Wirecutter finds no difference in sound with the adapter, but did confirm problems with remotes/mics after a period of inactivity through the adapter.

early rejecter, Wednesday, 21 September 2016 14:55 (one week ago) Permalink

lol I have a USB DAC that I put between my computer and my external computer speakers.

xp yes sales at high end have increased but also low end have become completely commoditized and are not irrelevant.

Brevs Mekis (dandydonweiner), Wednesday, 21 September 2016 15:48 (one week ago) Permalink

personally i don't understand how mini-bluetooth speakers became so ubiquitous, but everywhere i go it's like those and shitty skullcandy earbuds

no different than the boombox from 20-30 years ago, just a lot smaller and cheaper and more convenient

dr. mercurio arboria (mh 😏), Wednesday, 21 September 2016 20:00 (one week ago) Permalink

I never use the Bluetooth speakers the way they are advertised (like, a bunch of people partying around a sprinkler in a park or something), but it's convenient to have something I can put in any room of the house and pair with my phone easily, like if I want to put on music while doing the dishes or for my kids in the bedroom. I had a JBL which sounded pretty good and then it broke when it fell so I got some random brand with high marks for like $40 on Prime Day and it sounds pretty good, I can't even remember what it's called.

the last famous person you were surprised to discover was actually (man alive), Wednesday, 21 September 2016 20:01 (one week ago) Permalink

i have a JBL one, my favorite thing is the little drawstring loop on it so i can hang it up and out of the way of potential spillage

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 21 September 2016 20:18 (one week ago) Permalink

heck yeah

I impulse bought a bluetooth speaker (I own one at home, already, but it's bigger and not waterproof) when I was traveling out of one of those airport electronics vending machines. Mostly because I was very enthused about buying something out of a Best Buy vending machine and it was on sale (no more expensive than a real store despite being in an airport). That little fucker is waterproof and I have it hanging in my bathroom, sometimes in the actual shower! It's actually pretty sweet.

I'd be down with taking it to a picnic or whatever. I've used it outside while grilling.

also I had a cheap place I was staying on vacation, basically a college residence hall that rents out rooms like a motel, and it was better than most hotel radio things I've used

I have a 7+ and already its obvious that the camera is amazing as is the screen.

Also obvious is that I've never noticed how often I watch movies on my phone when the battery is dying. Not being able to charge and listen is a bigger deal than I imagined.

seriously considering the SE when I do finally get a new phone, although afraid I'll have trouble going back to the smaller screen

dropped by the apple store, the haptic feedback feels fine/good, cameras are great, didn't feel the need to upgrade but if i did it would be to the 7+ for its big cameras!!

i am probably gonna drop € for the SE at some point next week. then put an SSD in my 2011 Mini and i'll basically be good for another 5 years
