Apple’s Conservation Act requires that when one competitor leaves, the other must enter. It has always been that way and it will always be that way.
What is this?
I’m sorry, quantum mechanics is renouncing any knowledge of this law and states that there could be as many Apple competitors as it wants to try.
You’re not my boss, quantum mechanic!
Macalope was told that, in fact, quantum mechanics was his boss.
Well, anyway, that happened this week.
“Metin’s competitor Apple Watch is now on a break because the company is focusing on AR / VR”
“We are turning from dystopian personal tracking devices to dystopian facial throats.” Very brand.
… Meta was working on a new smartwatch with a built-in camera to compete with Apple Watch. Now the parent company Facebook has stopped the development of this wearable device because it is focusing on the metaverse.
Well, that’s just great! How will Macalope be constantly monitored and his every move and all his biometric data sold to advertisers? Will he have to accumulate that information and sell it yourself? That sounds like a lot of work! If we can’t count on Meta tracking all our movements and most of our personal data and selling them to advertisers, then who can we count on ?!
Alas, you will be stuck with this stupid Apple Watch that transmits privacy. So don’t expect furniture ads to appear in your Instagram feed the next time you go through Ikea.
Trying to compete with Apple Watch right now looks like you’re trying to run uphill through a waist-high pudding slide. It’s possible, but you have to be pretty dedicated.
What about making a new smartphone? Ah, that’s the ticket.
Yes, while Fire Phone and Essential Phone were sent to the dump of potential iPhone killers, drugs continue to spring forever. Welcome – and Macalope is here legally obliged to note that it is not making this name – phone Nothing.
“The first smartphone is not for Apple, not OnePlus”
After the moderate success of its Ear 1 headphones, Nothing is taking up space for smartphones, going so far that it discovered its offer a month earlier. Yes, soon everything will change. And what will that change? Nothing.
But Nothing is ready to talk about specifications or price.
Do not rush.
What does it look like? It looks a bit like an iPhone 11 with a clean back. And based on this video by Marquez Brownlee, it has LED light strips that transmit charging and ringtones and help with night shots. Nice, but if the sellers will soon be able to deliver the always included screens for the iPhone, it doesn’t seem that the lights will have a long lifespan.
UI, a version of Android with skin that looks something like the status bar of the European railway station, is certainly a different look that will probably be liked by some consumers who are looking for a change, but it is not likely that many will change the platform. And now it looks like it’s not even moving to the United States. So, while Nothing’s Carl Pei could throw out the features of the iPhone that his company wants to compete against, it’s a bit like Macalope who says he loves Taike Waititi movies so he expects to be friends with him one day.
(But seriously, Taika, if you’re reading this, call me.)
IDC’s Francisco Jeronimo is a little suspicious the transformative powers of the Phone Nothing.
I see some [sic] a lot of harassment about the phone @ nothing which I am beginning to suspect that there is nothing special about this phone other than its mask and a lot of online marketing. I hope you can prove me wrong @ getpeid
When so little is known about the device other than wanting to be compared to the iPhone, Macalope agrees.
