Thursday: Finally gets Vision Pro
Monday: Is diagnosed with early-stage cataracts
Fun fact: the Vision Pro comes with a 30W charger but it can charge a lot faster with higher wattage chargers
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 😭
how to correctly use git
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. #visionOS
TIL that double pressing the Digital Crown hides all apps on #visionOS, pressing it again brings them back.
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
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.
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.
Ok friends, leaving my Saturday Spa and Meditation session with a clear mind and an open heart to go pick up my VisionPro.
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?
Oh, hello there store page for PCalc on Apple Vision Pro:
I had another one lying around
A prize for the first person (outside Apple folk!) who sends me a screenshot of PCalc running on their Vision Pro!
Sounds like there will be more Vision Pro apps on day one than iPhone apps on day one.
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…
I hope I someday get to meet my Apple ad doppelgänger
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
