Best Apple TV+ Podcast

Can’t recommend this podcast enough to Apple TV+ fans and Apple technology fans.

More than a TV

I really enjoyed this, love the thought put into the accessibility features and I’m excited for the new shows coming out.

Side note hope the AirTags worked for you on the trip to Cupertino.

More realism needed

It’s not more cynicism needed, it’s more realism. Just listened to the recent podcast (argyle one) and you’d think the AppleVision product is some completely new tech. AR/VR has been around for years, Apple have just produced a nice looking one (see The Verge review for a good balanced review of it) The tech hasn’t taken off because people don’t want isolated experiences and alternative approaches are good enough without the downsides (weird thing stuck to face). Also Argyle film - total bomb at cinema…
