The next frontier with digital assistants will be to recognize hesitations & corrections so you don’t have to mentally draft your query in advance.

Sierra has decided I should speak British English and I don’t think I can tell it otherwise without losing French spellcheck.

Also interesting: the headset is mostly made of fabric, not just covered with it. If only Google had brought the same care to its phone’s design.

PSVR reviews are coming out and Amazon tells me not to expect my headset for a whole month 😞

Such a shame that Sony designed the best VR headset in many ways but falters on tracking by clinging to a six-year-old technology just so it could advertise a camera-less SKU under $400 — when in fact almost nobody already owns the camera.

The “Move selected messages to Junk” icon is an odd thing to change in a .1 release but nice timing—started using it recently and it sucked.

I love that Playroom VR’s social screen is a separately rendered visual and I’ll never tire of seeing VR avatars wearing goggles.

Like those Twitch streams of Job Simulator with a virtual camera view — YOU DOWNLOADED YOURSELF INTO THE GAME, MAN!

On this week’s Gadget Lab David Pierce mentions that, while demoing the new MacBook Pro, he tapped an icon on the Touch Bar that triggered a menu to appear on screen, and he naturally when to touch and select an option — twice before realizing his error. To which the Apple rep laughed and said “don’t worry, everyone did this” without realizing how damning her remark was from a UX design perspective. (In her defense, neither did Pierce, since he doesn’t mention it in his writeup.)

As others have said, the Touch Bar is probably the most definitive evidence that Apple does not intend to make touch-screens Macs in the foreseeable future. So it’s pretty funny that real-world user experience with the Touch Bar may well be what pushes to Apple to relent and add a touch-screen to the next MacBook. (In whichever decade “the next MacBook” might be launched.)

Even if you still use the keyboard and trackpad for most things, it’s becoming more and more absurd for any device to have a screen you can not interact directly with. Look at how the next Nintendo console reportedly has a touch-screen even though it wasn’t demonstrated at all in the reveal video and the screen will be hidden inside a dock during half of its operation.

I keep wondering whether The 7 Plus’s fake bokeh will durably lower the bar for what is acceptable photoshopping or we’ll grow out of it.

I feel like I should be past the point of making up completely unsubstantiated theories to excuse Apple but, considering how absurd it is for an all-Thunderbolt 3 new ‘Pro’ laptop not to be launched alongside a dock with external GPU, one could start to wonder — what if the reason the keynote happened so late in October, and the reason it was so long and boring, was that they were ironing the last kinks in an external GPU system, and eventually had to postpone its launch?

No, I don’t know why I do this to myself. And it’s fun to dream anyway since I couldn’t afford a new MacBook Pro if I wanted one.
