@jamesthomson oh no! On the upside, you’ll soon have bionic vision pro eyes to use with your Vision Pro

Fun fact: the Vision Pro comes with a 30W charger but it can charge a lot faster with higher wattage chargers

@christianselig an excellent pro-tip.

I cannot get over the dichotomy between how much nicer the Solo Knit band looks versus the Dual Loop band, and how much more comfortable the Dual Loop is 😭

SamTheGeek,
@SamTheGeek@mastodon.social avatar

@christianselig there’s a secret third band which has the solo loop’s back and the dial loop’s top band.

Ah this is unfortunate. When using a material with transparency in Reality Composer Pro, entities behind the surface tend to flicker. There is apparently a way to get around this (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/realitykit/modelsortgroupcomponent) but it doesn't appear to impact rendering here.

OK, time for a short* thread** about gas stoves. At this point, I have been thoroughly disillusioned and don't know how I ever thought they were any good. I never want one again***

  • I hope

** Please read the whole thing (I'll mark the end) before replying, as I might be touching on your thought!

*** Wok-users and enjoyers, boy do I have some interesting news for you about plug-in induction woks and how they're getting fairly cheap

SamTheGeek,
@SamTheGeek@mastodon.social avatar

@TechConnectify very curious about the induction wok! I have a good friend who uses his wok only on a 26k BTU burner outside because his kitchen gets too hot when he cooks indoors

Weirdly after trying optical inserts at the Apple Store and comparing it to just using it with contact lenses at home, I think I prefer the contacts. For me at least there’s less “fringing” on the edges of the display with contacts

I beg of you all, please stop thinking that these videos of people using Vision Pro in the street or in their cars are ‘real’.

These are all staged to get you to engage with them. They’re all set up.

SamTheGeek,
@SamTheGeek@mastodon.social avatar

@imyke I mean, driving while wearing one is doing the ‘bad part’ for real — regardless of whether they’re staged or not.

SamTheGeek,
@SamTheGeek@mastodon.social avatar

@imyke We don’t have rage bait videos of people texting while driving, but someone doing so almost killed me an hour ago. The filming of the behavior isn’t the bad part.

SamTheGeek,
@SamTheGeek@mastodon.social avatar

@imyke no, I know. I’m just saying that staged videos for clout as “walking around the mall wearing Vision Pro” are not the same as like “driving a car wearing Vision Pro.”

Sorry, I didn’t mean to imply you thought people should do it! There’s just a level of clout chasing that’s too far and needs to be shamed.

Can somebody with an astigmatism (cylinder) component in their prescription confirm that the Vision Pro settings UI doesn't show that part of the prescription? Mine is ALL cylinder and it just shows +0/+0 for sphere. I am wondering if they made my lenses right.

SamTheGeek,
@SamTheGeek@mastodon.social avatar

@danielpunkass they definitely requires my CYL measurement for the prescription when I put it in

Ok friends, leaving my Saturday Spa and Meditation session with a clear mind and an open heart to go pick up my VisionPro.

@Migueldeicaza would you be my valentine, then?

SamTheGeek,

@Migueldeicaza exciting! We’ll swap addresses. I can send flowers, you send a Vision Pro.

Is it just me, or is shooting TV series in Canada helping greatly with indigenous representation, since Canada is 4% indigenous? Or am I thinking too much about Tahmoh Penikett on Battlestar Galactica and Cara Gee on the Expanse?

Unexpected quality-of-life improvement tech feature: computer display with multiple inputs that switches the destination of its built-in USB hub to the active input source. It's fucking great.

My only gripe with it is that this monitor has only 2 USB inputs while it has 4 video inputs…

@SamTheGeek@mastodon.social avatar

@brunoph apparently we can’t have this with a 5k panel though…

I’ve been very critical of Apple for how they’ve chosen to abide by various government or court-ordered guidelines but I’m sorry Mozilla, I don’t think that this is an unfair burden. Do I wish this rule would be open everywhere? Yes. Do I think it would be good for Apple, longterm? Yes. Do I think Firefox with its budget is incapable of maintaining two iOS versions? No. https://www.theverge.com/2024/1/26/24052067/mozilla-apple-ios-browser-rules-firefox

SamTheGeek,
@SamTheGeek@mastodon.social avatar

@film_girl I think every interest group has decided to go with “let’s make Apple sound as evil as possible” instead of “Apple’s concessions are good but do not go far enough. Apple and EU regulators, along with authorities around the world, must do more to provide open access that is still secure and safe for users.”
