Apple announced this week a host of changes to comply with the EU’s Digital Markets Act, including a “core technology fee” that requires developers to pay €0.50 for each first annual install per year over a 1 million threshold. Spotify isn’t thrilled and calls the plan “extortion,” among other things. Tech Crunch has more: https://flip.it/vrP8ES

I am wondering if simply charging Apple users a very visible Apple tax (e.g 30% more expensive Spotify subscriptions with a labelled "Apple store surcharge") would raise awareness for Apple users?

In the end, it's up to the customers to decide...

Some hardware companies already have two versions of the same devices, with the one with licensed Apple technology more expensive...

One thing that'll make your eyes pop out when it comes to Apple's soon-to-launch VisionPro? The price: $3,499 USD. @verge has more details on what you get for your money. Are you tempted to invest in one?

I am wondering how long the queue in front of the Apple stores will be...

Maybe people will sleep overnight in front of the store?

Happy New Year from Melbourne, Australia! We had a great view of the fireworks from our apartment. IMO 2023 was a good year - way better than its three immediate predecessors - and I'm looking forward to 2024 too. May it be a good year for you all.

A officially licensed caravan? Would be cool to have it in different styles (TOS, TNG, Klingon).

The TNG comes with a Spot-approved scratch tree and the Enterprise one with a Porthos dog house...
