Leo Laporte (00:40:42):Holy grail. I'll give you his paragraph for that. The holy grail for 2022 of course will be if apple announces its first virtual reality headset with some AR featured code name N 3 0 1 rolls off the tongue and it's a company OS code named Oak realtime operating system. Did they, did they steal away
Andy Ihnatko (00:55:31):No, that, that, that's why, whenever I, my skepticism is all about mixed reality. It's like, there are things that apple, I think could O could already have done something like an Oculus because, and it is a wonderful thing, even when I was just, when I was first playing with Google cardboard, the, the standard where you just drop a phone inside a hall inside a holder, and just the ability to watch movies and inside a virtual theater. The first time I watch I had, I had like 2, 2, 3, 3 to one, like super wide screen, like Vista vision movies, and being in a virtual theater where as the director intended, I can't see the entire thing on one like 60 inch screen. I have to keep turning my head to watch the, the, to, to see things going, going on there. That that was an amazing thing. And now that you've got the 3d immersive games, that's also an amazing thing. Apple could have the technology for that obviously existed for a while. Apple could have gotten in on it very, very early. I think that that's easily could be the very next thing they do. That's the question is what spin are they gonna put on it that will make it as enticing as a $350 headset that for gods sakes, a company owned by Facebook is making success out of. Yeah.
Andy Ihnatko (01:04:38):I think you're right. I I'll I'm saying is that it's, I've the story of the, of the, if there's one thing that I've constantly been, been disappointed about in apple is that they consistently show how good they are at producing software, hardware, stacks, whatever, when they UN, when they control every single element of the process, when they have to create something that has to work with, what if, but what if someone wants a piece of hardware that isn't manufactured by apple, will it work successfully with that Apple is like, well, why would you, when we have our own standard iPods, why would you, when you have our own messaging system and that's, I'm not that doesn't, I'm suggesting that makes them a failure as a company. I'm saying, I'm saying that that's a, that's a it's, it's like a pitcher who has great control. Great speed. But can't do a break and ball. Can't throw a curve ball. 1e1e36bf2d
