The design legacy of Apples Jony Ive is iconic, but eco-problematic

"Apple is known for beautiful expensive products that get replaced pretty often either for status or because the battery is dying when longtime designer Gianni. I've left apple last month to form his own design company. Lots of people looked back at his time at apple and his influence on creating. Waiting products that were hard to repair prioritized thinness and beauty over sometimes reliability and whether as apple gears up to announce new iphones this fall that might actually change now that I've is Gone Kyle Wiens is the founder of the electronics repair site. I fix it. He wrote a blog post about ives mixed legacy at apple especially when it comes to the environment and he said sometimes simple isn't better. It's this idea that it should be so simple to use the you shouldn't have to worry about how it works. What's under the hood? They decided intentionally that they were going to hide the complexity of the battery from us but what that did is a side effect was it limited the lifespan it made these last shorter and and so then when the new you know a sexy renew features comes out next year like Ammiel one doesn't work as well. I'm going to get a new one. How much did these design choices influence? The rest of the tech world like phones used to have walkable batteries until the iphone came along and Apple Paul really you could argue drove the rest of the industry into this sort of more throw away tack. Absolutely they drove the rest of the industry this idea that it was acceptable that you could get away with say integrating the hard hard drive onto the main motherboard. If you want to separate the computer from the data. There's no way to do it. That's the kind of thing that that most other companies would have said No. That's a red line. We won't Cross Apple crosses that line and then everyone else follows you've also. Written recently about how Johnny is designs based on the style of German industrial designer deter roms and a principal like a really important principle of deter ROMs design was sustainability environmental sustainability and you talk about how Johnny lives is leaving apple without having reconciled really a big gap there. Why do you think that that shift happened and really hasn't been addressed right out of design? Principles Design Zayn is is sustainable and design long lasting and I think those things get coupled together when you do something like like doing in a battery that artificially limits the life of the entire device to the life of its shortest component. You're getting on this consumer a treadmill treadmill where we just have to go out and buy more things and the the environmental impact of manufacturing these things is significant. It's it's over two hundred pounds of raw material to make an iphone but the fundamental product architecture of saying as thin as possible and damn the consequences it really is a challenge. What we've seen is apple's environmental team who is very good have done everything they can to make? The products is sustainable except change the design that has been driven by Johnny Ivan his team and there have been A. A number of very specific decisions that they've made that of limited lifespan of these devices I think probably to the Chagrin of apples embarrasment team who then has to support it in the best possible late how much of it is on us the consumer I I mean we have certainly bought them all the time. We've complained about them. You know you've got rid of the headphone Jack. Oh I can't slot my battery out. This is so annoying and yet we we do keep buying them absolutely and this is a challenge that we have is a culture. Is it when you when you have something where there's multiple variables that you have to choose from you want the best audio player but you also would like something that will last a long time <hes> because it doesn't have stamped on the box. Hey this thing last eighteen months. I think we tend to forget we put out of our minds. Were not very good. <hes> psychologically it making long term decisions and then then later we tend to justify say oh well you know it's not running as as long as it used to but <hes> you know there's a new one that came out so I think I think that is <hes> they've been able to take advantage of psychology <hes> that yes we bear some responsibility but I think the lack of disclosure if they said hey if a single key on this computer breaks it's going be over a thousand dollar repair that might change people's mind when they're purchasing things up front but people don't have that information and how do you think that that mentality that psychology is starting to change sort of like as you get to the point where you're feeling like <hes>. I'm about to buy my fifth iphone. Phone this one seems fine except the battery for example and then of course there was the scandal about it. Do you think that as these devices get longer in the tooth. There's more awareness that they don't last as long as maybe they should or could I think so we're starting to see people wanting to push their devices longer part of that is the improvement in smartphones is not as great every year as it used to be so as that's potatoing. We don't need to get new phones <hes> all that frequently but the batteries don't last any longer than they used to so all of a sudden. We're GONNA keep our phones twice as long as did three four years ago <hes> we're going to have to be replacing the battery and at that point making those batteries available <hes> is going to be an important competitive differentiator and that's where you have companies like Motorola that have come out and said we're going to sell service parts for our funds. We're going to make them available both to repair shops into consumers <hes> there's a there's a crack that apple has left in the market that perhaps mother all will exploit so we could start circling back around to the beginning where we have phones with <hes> swap -able batteries and maybe S._d.. I D cards lots and so this is something really funny people as as because we take these things apart I take apart every iphone. There is room inside the Iphone S._d.. Card Slot. There's room for some cards. There's room for Nestea card. They put that in there the only reason that you can't upgrade. Upgrade the memory on the iphone is is because they want to charge you an extra hundred or two hundred dollars for the extra storage Kyle Wayans the founder of the electronics repair site. I fix it and now for some related links lots of words have been written about apple and whether it still has its legendary Mojo and what will happen now that Johnny Ive is gone but I fought Jonathan Troy Aikman in the New York Post put a really well a week or so ago you said apple needs to figure out how to keep creating things that we didn't even know we needed. We of course also have linked to Kyle wiens piece on our website Marketplace Tech Dot Org and obviously it isn't only design. That's made apple products especially the iphone more likely to get replaced then repair. It's also the fact that a new device gifts introduced every year always at least in theory with some must have set of features that means the old one is now useless or at best unwanted and then new features in its operating system. Them Aren't always available for older phones like in the upcoming thirteen. There's a software fix to keep your battery from overcharging which should prevent your battery from getting old and not holding a tarred so quickly after you buy a new phone except that I._S.. Thirteen will only be available on newer iphone models but it does seem like consumers increasingly want off the hamster wheel research firm Gartner forecast last week that smartphone shipments will have their quote worst ever decline in two thousand.

"On the people who WANNA hi mouse aren't going to like and vice versa so it's not like it's incorrect or correct choice but say apple did make one there was still beautiful and apple detailed and like it still looks like an elegant piece of art but it was it was basically Ashley Fatter like it was the fat mouse to Fatten Nanos bigger and fatter filled your hand. It would be less elegant and less minimalist unless simple because like if you can make a mouse slim and low why would you make it big and fat and the that kind of the same way with the remote if I can make remote the size of a piece of chewing gum. Why would I make bigger and the answer is obviously because people human hands are big and join governments small anyway setting aside the remote for now? There's an argument who made on the mouse that if you made added bigger it might be easier for people to grip and find and use and manipulate Blah Blah Blah but if apple did that people would look at that fat mouse kind of like the Fan Nanno and go boy apple really needed johnny is because he left and they made this disgusting and mouse that looks like Microsoft Mass looks like a logitech him like an apple mouse at all and what I'm when I'm driving it as like the the design philosophy evidenced by apple's product during the Johnny Ive era era has become so synonymous with apple because he's been here so long as such an important influence on so many important products that that's what people think of as apple like so even if apple the company makes a Microsoft style mouse and even if the great. Right Mouse and people love it. They're going to look at it and say that's not like it was better when Johnny I was here because look how inelegant this looks look how bloated it looks look how silly and comically large looks like the the the I've mouth was elegant and this is not and I think that would be a shame because although the design philosophy embodied by Apple's current products and it's passed price for many years is a great one it is not the only one the only reasonable design philosophy especially when it comes to peripherals so I feel like our hope for the remote and maybe external keyboards and possibly mice depending on how you feel about the current one hinges on the public's public's willingness to accept anything that is not in line with the Johnny Ive Minimalist Essential Ism design aesthetic and I'm afraid that in Nevada makes a great product but it's not a it's sort of a zen garden sculpture beautiful..

"Unapologetically quitting the company offered assurances that it's still going to be a primary client of Ives in his new firm and CEO. Tim cook had some nice words, he said that apple will continue to benefit from Johnny's talents by working directly with him on exclusive projects and through the ongoing work of the brilliant and passionate design team that he built. So what you think of this news will not surprising, right? Is that this is been something that has sort of been in the works, and typical of apple Apple's really good at sort of a long game with public relations right? Like they planted the seeds for this a couple years ago in the New Yorker profile about Johnny ive. And they said, you know, at some point he's going to be stepping down because he wants to spend more time with his family. He wants to do different kinds of work, blah, blah. And that has sort of been the narrative when you talk about the design stuff coming out about new, particularly people who follow the personnel and like know everybody's name who works in that office. They know that. At some point Johnny's gonna step down. And there is already like a succession plan in place. This wasn't a direct succession, because like you said, they're not naming anybody who's going to replace him. But, you know, they did like drop some names of the people who are going to be stepping up. And those names are the people that we've all been watching for the last couple of years as the people who are going to step up to take over the role of designing products also. Probably not going to change too much because his new creative services agency is still going to be involved. So I think he's just kind of like now he just gets to be his own boss, and I think that the fact that he's still going to be working closely with apple. It's something the company really wanted to underscore because there were probably concerned about a sell off, like market concerns. People wondering what does this mean for the future of apple and his Apple's design all downhill from here and all those things. So they're probably trying to stave off all those worries. So they made sure to say in the press release like don't worry. We're still going to be working with him. He's still going to be putting his stamp on apple products in some way and a heat to say this, but I think only time will tell whether or not that actually remains the case L. What did you think of this? I'm with Mike. I think it's not totally surprising. I think this sort of presents four can the road for apple. One is that they can continue down the same path of design at they've sort of established so well over so many years, and that's almost certainly will happen. But when someone with this kind of. Of background leaves. It opens the opportunity for apple to go in a different direction, and some people have pointed out in sort of first glance pieces of this, this big news announcement today, that, you know, apple has not had the best track record for sustainability in design. It's not HUD, the best track record, four repairability. It's not had the best track record for using the most innovative materials..

"So that was difficult and challenging. Yeah, that's probably true as well. Everybody by raspberry pi. And that's I don't. All right. We've gone away over time. I just wanna give one update is coming on Friday. This day this moment that this podcast is coming out, is the one year anniversary, the President, Donald Trump going to my hometown, picking up a gold shovel sticking into the dirt in my hometown. Mount Pleasant Wisconsin. In Saint Cloud, does a gold shovel. Of course it was Insane insane. factory that Foxconn is building. Here will be the eighth wonder of the world. It is not one year later. Confidently reports here that the eighth wonder of the world is not been constructed in Racine. Wisconsin Joshua's, as a big piece of timeline. This thing is shrunk in size so much from eighth wonder of the world, to maybe worse, semblance servers, and automotive components. I will tell you this FOX on has still not told us what the AK five G ecosystem is Neela. I wanted the pro pro on this special occasion. I want to provide you with update update by the scene. Well, there's, you know, the display port two point zero spec was announced supports up to sixteen k who and so I think this new factory that will totally. Capable. Well, no, no. We used to be a k plus five g but, you know, tech moves on. Yeah. Now there is a new buzzword that I have just discovered. Oh, god. OT right. Plus I still. And then Trump your favorite civil man has introduced the concept of sixty so visiting factory may very well. Bring us the first a IOT sixteen k plus sixty. It's possible that was just a journey Paul. How long have you been preparing that? Yeah. It's a good trail, by the way, the AI OT just just weeks. Your security. Cam credential automatically. I don't think so. I think they're going to end up building, like little screens for cardis plays to read the story. We obviously we've been tracking it forever. They have never issued us a correction. We're like three months. And now they've never issued us a correction for our ports, the buildings, they bought her empty even they promised us one. They've, they did file some plans for the facility to building about pleasant the plans include the description of the Japanese gardens are going to have the meditation area. You know, the gardens up fronts, but they don't include we, we asked some consultants to look at this for us and analysts they said, there's no fab like there's no LCD fab outlined in this plan. So it's it looks like it's just going to be an assembly factory, but rejoices piece it's just a time line of how we've gone from eighth wonder of the world. And it's just scaled down like month after month. They've scaled down actually in. There was a report in the they're seen journal time. Today that maybe the factories, even even a bit more delayed than previously estimated Burri Josh's piece, I just wanna keep everyone's focused on FOX on when I can not selfishly because it is my hometown. But I think that deal is so emblematic of, of how we're building stuff lately. Also AK plus five g or is Paul said the OT sixteen k six. It's the worst. All right. That's it. That's the verse cast a big thanks to our producer. Andrew Marino, for figuring out how to edit this one that was all over the place this week in a sincere goodbye to Johnny ive who's gonna party on a boat with Bono with his perfect phone with no ports. He you know, he's gone. No screen. It's just a block. Protects your privacy perfectly. I asked you can tweet me I'm at reckless dealers. Back on Paul's a future. Paul, let us know where you want to stop and actually just give us some feedback. We'd love it rate us in reviews on apple podcasts. That's where the producers asked me, because that's know that's the monopoly provider podcast. Let's be honest, and please listen to percent button. It was. They're big online wrap up. They did celebrity death. Twitter's. The worst Twitter, I was trolled in this episode which I'm not happy about, but I'm telling you, so you can go listen to it an Caitlyn made a lot of fun on this episode. That's fine.

"So the, the new plan here is Evans Hanky the vice president industrial design, and Alan die, who's the vice president of human interface. Design are going to report to Jeff Williams, who is the COO at apple. And so they have been on Apple's design team for a really long time. And so they're, they're sort of, they're taking over those two things. So it sounds like they might be splitting a little bit software and hardware, although saying, he would interface design industrial design are, like, you know, software and hardware is over simple. Vacation by quite a bit. Yeah. But I mean th that's also huge right there reporting not to the reporting to the operations guy, apple Sabih. Con is being promoted another twenty four year veteran of apples being promoted to operations. So you see Jeff Williams, we'll get a little bit bigger. If you watch apple keynotes, you, actually know Jeff Williams says he's he always says the watch stuff, but he's also the CMO the company, but remember when jobs died in his book. He's like, I set up the company and no one can screw design. I said, if a company so, Johnny ive is in charge of what the products are the product forward company now design is not at the CEO level. It's to people under the COO like org charts are boring in this Bricusse like it's chart. But, like keep in mind, the soul of apple is designed I in their big famous designer, again, who is a night is leaving. I like I think it's a good. I kind of think it's a good thing. Yeah. I the charging the apple pencil. Charging the magic messed a really sticking out to me right now. Like, literally, it figured. You know, it's just like I think I'm having a little bit enough of that brand of apple and Abby. I beat the lamp imac lamp, the cube. There's it's really end of an era. It's wild the thing that I have been thinking about we've been talking here is Apple's design, especially in hardware, but a little bit in software, although they doubt the back has become more austere over the years over the last five ten years, and the thing that brought apple back from the brink was playfulness that original, I MAC the idea of having the MAC the new, I Iraq beyond a funny little lamp stand.

"Or decisions treated as president. It for future cases. And the power for the board to influence Facebook policies, the company plans to finalize the boards charter in August. So this was thanks again, to Carl for, for sending that along to get the inside scoop on this couple of days earlier, even before it was confirmed, and it's interesting to see Facebook to say, here's the people told us not, here's what we're going to do. I think that's smart. Facebook, get let their reaction be to the suggestions, so that they can kind of take the temperature of the room, amongst people are concerned about this, but I actually really liked this idea of saying, look, let's, let's create a path, where people can appeal there, take downs that we are not involved in and I think these suggestions are in line with that. I applaud these guidelines, I think it's a good step forward. And I would only hope that all of these cases that we are being used that would go forward as effective kind of case law to what should it should not be there. Moderation wise are posted as publicly and clearly as possible. So at least we can start to build a general base on what is. Good. And what is bad? There will always be content in an infinite, a content generator like Facebook that will push up against of various rules and regulations. But the best thing we can do is at least have a roadmap. So anything that does come up or down, we'll be able to be judged against something that already happened. Yeah. And just a lot of. A lot of transparency about how the road map is being built, and who is building the roadmap and you hear this thing about the Lieber association friends who labor association is just a bunch of VC's and companies that already make a lot of money. Like, what does it matter that Facebook's minority member of Lieber association, so that, that also ties into Facebook not being trusted more often than than late as of late? And again, the more transparency, the better. And also, it's like why should we trust Facebook? Like wasn't even, like, well, the whole idea is that we don't right now, I sort of, I think that's what's great about these stories is, like, no, we shouldn't trust you Facebook, but you're doing the things that are acting like we don't trust you so good. Good for you. I mean that's like it's like trusting the vending machine. Like, yes, I want the vending machine of ven Mia soda, not for me to feel good about the fact that it gave me a soda like it doesn't work. We should call the repairman. It works.

"It's all I'm saying is like, okay, this is the more circumstantial evidence that here is an opportunity where something bad might have happened is just not the smoking. One. Nothing to see here. Move along aging, Bob weir might be just doesn't know if there is a right, exactly. Elizabeth Lobato has an in depth analysis on the verge about why libra the proposed cryptocurrency might not help people without Bank accounts. And as we mentioned on last week show, that's one of the main potential advantages of libra is to reduce those remittance fees and transfer fees. Here's here's some here's boiled down. What, what the pod says one point seven billion people don't have Bank access worldwide half of unbagged adults live in seven countries and Facebook is banned in one, China and has been temporarily banned at some point in three others, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Bangladesh. Now that doesn't guarantee libra wouldn't be led into those countries since libra is not tied to Facebook directly, but it's not a good sign. Facebook is probably going to be the lead negotiator, these sorts of things, so it puts them at a bit of a difference disadvantage in another of the. Countries. India, libra wouldn't be banned under current crypto currency laws. Now, Facebook's trying to change that. But they, they have an uphill road there. An India is a gargantuan market. So if they couldn't get into India, that would be a big blow on the plus side, Indonesia, which is one of these seven countries just legalized trading crypto currencies. So they've got an easier road there. And they're pretty big country to Lepanto also points out that so far, no libra founding members are based in Asia, or Africa. And only one is in Latin America in Argentina. And that's where most of the world's une banked people are so that's not a great sign. Also, almost two-thirds of unbanned, people don't have enough money to open a Bank account. Labor's not going to solve that about twenty five percent of unbagged respondents, said fees were at least part of the reason they don't have Bank accounts. That's LeBron's main appeal. So they've got a chunk but not a majority and remember to use libra Lepanto points out. You have to buy libra, and the easiest way to buy libra is the bull money from a. Account or a credit card. So there's some roadblocks into libra cessation being something that is good for the unthanked community in the world, which in my opinion is probably one of the best chances for uptake of the libra association, Facebook or not. I had bid of the look, I, I think that there's a lot of good questions that we can have about libra and, and certainly when it comes to a acting the kind of communities, that Lieber is seeking to affect..

"Always design only designed really really small things which means we can never do any really meaningful innovation. And I think there are some things we can resolve on sort of tactical level that can fix that. Would to me. The more interesting discussion is well in this new world that we live in where things are changing more and more continuously. What makes you think you can actually come up with a big long design and get it? Right. And if you look at Facebook, if you look at Twitter, and if you look at the massive levels of unintended consequences. Hopefully, it would be an opportunity for humility on the part of the design community. There was an interesting comment by Johnny ive of apple where he said anytime you release a product you're actually releasing two products the one you intended to in the when you didn't intend to. And you can look at the iphone, you know, and and the wonderful things and the horrible things that have happened to society because of the iphone. Yeah. And the designers probably couldn't have figured out in advance that they were going to be enabling a culture of narcissism by releasing the iphone, and I think that's the whole point. Yeah. And I think the the point to me where agile and DevOps in design thinking come together in a meaningful way. Is it gives you a mechanism for seeing your unintended consequences? More continuously one of the really great things about DevOps when you get beyond this sort of DevOps as fast release management, and you start looking at resilience engineering and chaos engineering and things like that the basic notion is that you're operating environment is a complex system. You can't predict it. You can't control. It failure is going to happen. You're going to have security breaches you're going to have outages. You're going to have failures. Let's actually approach things with that assumption now instead of trying to design an engineer failure out of existence. And I think there's a tremendous amount that the design community could learn from that of let's not assume we did our user testing gray. We did our prototyping gray. We did our AB testing great. Let's not assume that we're done now that we've released it. Yeah. That really it's just the beginning. And it's going to tell us things that we weren't expecting just like user testing tells us things we weren't expecting. He I think there we're sometimes I've seen people struggle. I have two comments here. One is that because there's somebody higher up though, that one's the thing to be done. Somebody who's paying the bills are like when is it going to be done, and you can go to them and say, well, this is never going to be done. It's custom software. Whatever case may be. It's our infrastructure. It's there's always going to be, but they want to be able to put a price tag on something and say that. Cost me that now I can move on because in any other areas of their business. That's how it works. Right. Is that this warehouse cost this much? I bought the warehouse. We're done, right. There is a conflict particularly happening in enterprises between traditional management, you know, program management project management where we have a project. We're going to roll out this new backup software or we're going to deliver this new web application, and it's going to cost us eight hundred thousand dollars.

"But in this case really needs to cover everything from rain to sweat would not only prevent air pods from being damaged to the weather, but you all the hardcore workouts, they often get put through everyday as well more sophisticated controls are also high on many people's must have lists. Apple has already added different options for the accelerometer tap on existing air pods. Unless you put the controls tapping one air pot can do something different than tapping the other you can't control volume yet, though. But if apple could add a capacity layer to the circumference somewhere what had just added to the apple pencil to to switch tools, then maybe you could swipe up to increase and swipe down to decrease volume. And it'd be one less reason for you to reach for your watch or your iphone anymore. The ability the more and varied ears has also come up often, even though Johnny ive and his team found a way to fit most ears. Most of the time that's still leaves some people out and at the scale of apple products, even a small percentage translates into a lot of individuals. I don't know if apple could tweak the shape or the material to hit an even wider range of people or if it good Goto or off an ear alternative for those who really need it. But something because air pods really should be for everyone, the accessibility benefits alone from guided walking to full on audio augmented reality are going to demand it soon. Anyway, especially if air pods get into computational three d audio so sound can be placed in space both from. Mundane things like directions and tours and spectacular things like gaming entertainment noise, cancellation, especially as an option is important while you never wanna have street, traffic blocks. You get hit by a truck when you're jogging. You are often on airplanes we'd love to drown out the sound of basically everything else and health sensors similar or the same to what apple has been adding to apple watch could really offer enhanced functionality in the short term, and maybe complete functionality in the future and just like my video last week. You never know when proximity with gate detection, and other biometric factors could be used for security, both of the air pods themselves and for all the other apple devices in your life, and of course, color, especially in the age of iphone ten are where blue red yellow and coral are the new blacks apple seems to think why is Connor when it comes to its audio accessories going all the way back to the original ipod. But his any watch lover will tell you we now live in an age of technology, as fashion and white isn't always going to be the best option, certainly not for everyone. And absolutely not. All the time. Maybe higher end air pods in silver and space, gray, or who knows rose gold, and you entry level air pods in all of the iphone ten our colors, then of course, is on board. Hey series. So you don't even have to tap anymore. Now, you do have to be cautious. When it comes to tiny batteries and always on features. But moving the trigger word from the iphones a-series to the air pods w series would likely boost performance and convenience enough to warrant it over time. Maybe the connection to series service could also move as well that way. Like apple watch anytime, air puzzle. Tech a wifi network. They already know about via the iphone they could just connect immediately and send the query instantaneously. Of course, that kind of activity also opens air pods up to on device. Apple music podcasts and audio book streaming like apple watch the batteries are profoundly smaller. So the features will likely take commensurately longer, but as much as apple watch has been called the next generation ipod. It's really that will eventually be the best suited to take over that role basically near field versions of the. Far field

"Hundred dollars on the special bump cover case that also happens to be keyboard really is a bump cover case. And. The screen itself is something they call liquid retina. Ooh, that sounds tasty. Ten sounds like liquid sugar liquid retina. I remember when Steve Jobs said the screen, soap beautiful, you could lick it. I think that's taking a page from the book of job. It's liquid retina. It's quite beautiful true tone. Yes, the screen adapts to the ambient lighting wherever you are. I'm not sure why. But it does it does not talking about the nightshift where it's yellow because you don't want blue is heaven for fen hit blue eyes hit your eyeballs in the middle of the night. That would be terrible. So no, I'm not talking about the night shift. In fact, that completely defeats the true to-. I'm talking about just in the course of life itself as you go from outdoors to indoors it just magically subtly shifts. I don't know why to. Match the environment. I guess it's like a mood ring pad except instead of you. It's marrying the environment. And then it's got a process the real the real thing, and I'll stop being physician the real thing. That's kind of truly incredible is the micro processors in this thing, the a twelve ex not ten the twelve x by onic. Remember, the biotic man, we have the technology the first seven nanometer, seven billions of meter process Intel couldn't do it. Only apple. Because they're geniuses could do it. Well, Appleton really do it the Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, but apple told them to do it samples idea. The a twelve x biotic has eight CPU's in it for fast ones for slow ones needs to fasting fast when he's co slung slow, but if it needs to go really fast all eight of them will go in. So it could as much as eight. Seven. I don't know. Why seven I don't know where the number seven seven graphic processing units, you could have had eight, but that'd be two symmetric. Johnny ive doesn't like symmetry. It's not aesthetic eight GPA say eight CPU seven GP us and a Partridge in a machine language unit in there to just just because that's you know, they might as well have a blockchain ship to just to get all the buzzwords. It's got a machine dedicated getting facetious again, I'm sorry. It is very fast. It is sadly faster than ninety two. According to apple ninety two percent of all the laptops sold this year. Why sat? Well. There's all here's all this beauty in power in this thing. But it's still running. I o s which means it can't really can't can't really like edit. Text very well. It doesn't have a track. There's no mouse. They can I guess you can use a pencil little bit. You can't it can't access the file system. There is one. But it's hidden from you hidden from you because the priesthood should see the files not you. It's too confusing for your little brain. You don't need the file system. You can't attach external storage to it..

"I thought like first of all I'm like, what am I going to say a Johnny ive like, I'm just anything. I say I'd probably be making an idiot myself. And he doesn't know or care who I am. So like what what am I going to say like, and it was very clear also that Johnny was very uncomfortable in this setting. Like, it's like, there's a reason why he's usually only seen in videos, and he wasn't this time. Like, it was interesting like the the. The role that Johnny would have normally played which has the voice over in. The video was Phil Schiller. This time in for the ipad video who did a great job, by the way, great job. I kind of miss seeing his normally fill would present new max or ipad or new mattress pads. But I kind of Michigan mistakes. But it was it was interesting like hearing hearing a fill voiceover in that video that was pretty cool, but Johnny was nowhere in the event. Then like, he he didn't have any voice overs. But it's very clear like why he normally does those because we've what we've heard here, and they're like he doesn't like being on as you're doing that. And he clearly was not that comfortable in a mob room full of people who are mostly his fans trying to help with them like this was not his scene. So I wasn't going to try to add to his crowd. But a few minutes later as he was leaving. He wa- he was going to walk past where I was standing. I figure like I'm not going to like stop him or anything. Because again, what would I say? But as he was walking by did think of something. I thought of one thing I said, hey, Johnny. I missed you in the videos. And he was like, oh, he he laughed music. Thank you. It is wonderful British way. And I feel very proud of that that I made Johnny ive laugh, and he was clearly uncomfortable and one of the fastest possible. I didn't stop him. We're slow him down. And I didn't make an acid myself. So I'm very proud of myself because normally in that kind of situation I would say something really stupid and make a total ass of myself. And I didn't do that. I was still be thinking that Johnny thinks I'm a jerk for saying that. But anyway, I thought it was weird that he wasn't in the videos because this is an all new ipad design, and the time you need Johnny to tell you about something is when it's an all new design. How do they go from the old ipad to the new one? And what is it about this new design? That's so great and tell us the philosophy behind it until all and he wasn't there to do that. And so they had that thing that animated like the finger running around the outside of the ipad flattening out, which I thought was cute that video was awesome. By the way, like the video of the finger like editing, the old I've had to become the new one that was really cute. But they didn't have Johnny telling us philosophically what they're thinking was the new. We can surmise it. And there were other things video. But that's exactly what the role that. He normally fills. So actually, I actually did miss them. You're right. He was an felt filled. Did a great job, but his voice and what he normally says in his scripts or whatever was slightly missing from explaining the. The thinking behind an all new design for prominent apple product. He didn't he doesn't need to explain MAC book, air, whatever. But I feel like the ipads. He could've explained around the time that this was right before this was happening. So Martha was using an ipad, and I saw Johnny across from him. And I snapped a few pictures, and you can see one of them in my Instagram. I'll put a link in the show notes, then I started using that same ipad and for while. They're not really noticed that that he was there..

"So these are all kind of muted call yet. They're still vibrant. Yeah, I don't like the gold iphone tennis by the way we didn't talk about the gold option, but whatever apple loves it. I know they do. Apple had people just like I don't Lincoln in Bush's at the event to pop out and do like, have you seen the gold one, the delight, the gold watches and delicate tone anyway, I love the orange ten are, but I just didn't want you to just, I'm okay. The client we have to talk about the colors. Colors are beautiful. So comes in colors. I think that's going to be attracted if people it's seven hundred and fifty bucks. Yeah, to expensive. It has an shootings. So it's got a bigger screen. Than than your iphone seven or CSS whatever you have. Now it's huge. This is the phone people are going to buy. So really, here's how I want you to think about it. Here's how I'm thinking about this is your headline the iphone. Well, it's the default, but now there's the iphone ten are? Yeah. And then for just two hundred and fifty dollars more, you can add a camera and three touch in a nicer screen that same process. I've got a twelve biotic has a single camera on the back in the same tripped on the front. So you think they've normalized their product line in some way here? Yeah, I it. I think again, when Johnny ive says the iphone ten s is uncompromised or utterly uncompromising whatever, whatever he says, what they mean is that's the best they can build. Yep, absolutely. This is the best friend we can build. This is all we got. We'll try again next year, but this is all we can do this year at the scale. And also there's a big one now. Yeah, I think the ten are just by definition must be that wants the uncompromising compromised in some way. And I think the compromise is, are we know people. Big screens. It's Oleg screens are really expensive made by Samsung. So we're going to go back to our LCD suppliers, bring down the price, they'll LCD that's going to change the design of the phone in some way. It turns out not everybody really wants to cameras and we can fake portrait mode because of the neural engine anyway. Yeah, so it can fake portrait mode now in the same way that the pixel can fix fake portrait. Yeah, and it's great. It'll be great fun for everybody has an iphone six s held onto it for everybody has seven. A lot of those people don't want big ass phone like they SE. No, I think I think people more people a lot of people who think they don't want a huge phone do on a Putul and they just want a minute. And if you tell them that they get very mad at you, but like it's the truth, you want make phone. There are a lot of people who just know they wanna make fun of, we'll get it. But I think there is there is a whole where there a bunch of customers that are still using the SE. Right? That's still still thought the six was too big that aren't convinced that even the tennis is like the right size or the ten is rights is well in the eight-stone sale. Yeah. Right? I think the iphone eight is the smallest town in the lineup. Yeah, it's like it's still there, but I think the ten are to me is it's first of all, it's the most interesting to me because it's the new product, the newest thing they made right..

"Now I know more what, how this stuff works and I knew last week and and you know, now I know things like how Intel like modern until CPU's in the high end laugh this almost never can maintain their base clock for long periods of time, like almost all of them even last year's models like ever since Kaby lake and now coffee lake like these processors are because of Intel's problems moving away from fourteen animator. These processors are cramming way more transistors and way higher clock speeds into this old manufacturing technology than what it was ever intended for and what these laptops were intended for. So Intel is really pushing the boundaries to try to get like better performing ships out every year when they can't move forward on their process yet that the are having to deal with higher and higher thermals. And so part of part of my like easing. On my anger on this was just learning. You know that like, yeah, this is actually not knew that many of the laptops recently can't maintain max, you know, base clock under parallel workloads for more than a half hour or something like that. But also I've learned that the PC world is having the exact same struggles that like it isn't and this wasn't necessarily make it okay, but it is nice like it isn't just apple messing up here that other PC laptops that are considered like thin lights that have these processes in the are actually in worse shape. Usually that usually that either they cool at worse or their cooling, these same chips at two to roughly the same level, but with more noise. And so the only thing that apple is not competing well against here is what you mentioned. Basically, the gaming laptops books are really like they look ridiculous. I mean, I've never even seen one in real life, but I seen like the pictures of like they, they're basically like an inch thick on the bottom, and they have these giant vents on all sides, and they're apparently very loud because, of course it had to fit like a big fan have to be very loud and so. That's something that like what is what? What aspect of that description is the most offensive to apple. Johny. I don't know if Johnny ive is is a noise nut, but he probably is. That's one thing. I don't know if I can say about them. We certainly know what his aesthetic tape tastes are and thicker, heavier, big grill type vent apples been doing very well with with a for years on keeping their stuff quiet, they. They've been great on fan noise and they beginning better and better at it. And so that's why I'm one of the reasons why impressed by the I MAC pro is that it's it is silent with everything I throw out the. I've only heard people saying, if you max out the CPU end the GP you, then you can hear the fan. I've never done that. Like I just mess up the CPU and Dixie. It's mostly idle so like you can do whatever you want to the Perron. You won't hear it. It's fantastic. And so like the those giant gaming dumping, that's not a product Apple's ever gonna make even if the market demands it there, they will never be able to swallow their apple nece and make that. Just like they would not do that. I don't know if Johnny in particular is noise is suspect he is, but I know that apple institutionally is an that's part of one of the most fun things I've done in recent years was the behind the scenes tour of their audio testing lab the right before or right after the home pod came out and bright before, but.
