Apple took the time to put mixed reality/spatial computing/displays on your face. But finally, Vision Pro is here. Do you need one? Probably not. Will it change the world in a year? Probably not. Is it aimed at developers, wealthy Apple devotees and influencers hoping it will pay dividends in content? Yes.
It also has incredibly sharp, bright displays, the best augmented reality experiences we’ve ever tried, and Apple’s intuitive control and navigation prowess. It’s early days, and if you bought your first iPhone or Apple Watch, you know how it goes. The app options are limited and the battery life isn’t great, but the bigger question remains: Is this the future of computing? Can be? You must read the full review by Devindra Hardawar, here.

Platforms with more than 45 million users must comply with EU regulations.
ByteDance and Meta, the owners of TikTok, do not intend to pay the European Union to regulate them. The companies objected to a monitoring fee set by EU moderators required to monitor Meta, TikTok and other major platforms under the Digital Services Act (DSA).

Just like he did with Microsoft Bing for Copilot, Google is trying to simplify the AI chatbot universe while confusing everyone. Bard and Duet AI are now Gemini, named after Google’s multimodal AI model. Google also debuted a dedicated Gemini Android app alongside a paid version of the chatbot. Install that app and you can replace the default Google Assistant on your Android phone. Along with instant access to Gemini, the overlay will offer contextual suggestions, such as creating a caption for the photo you just took or asking for more information about an article.
