In this podcast, Jon Westfall and I discuss:
- Longer upgrade cycles and growing purchases of used smartphones said to threaten flagship sales
“Back in 2014, the average upgrade cycle was 23 months – likely attributable to most consumers upgrading every two years, while a much smaller number upgraded every year. But that number has already hit 31 months, says BayStreet Research, and is set to climb higher still”
- Google launched a simple browser-based sequencer for making music
- Google Research Blog. Mobile Real-time Video Segmentation – green screen video without a green screen.
- 9to5Mac”: New lower cost MacBook Air? Probably at the cost of losing ports.
Jon’s got a defense of going with less ports… innovation in mobile workspace design
- Gizmodo. 911 calls from Apple Park – employees walking into the glass walls. People who live in glass houses should not run into them.
