      They bet everything on this and it's failing. They completely abandoned their car project after sinking $1 billion into it and they don't have any other vision for the future now. A company that fails to innovate can't last long, especially in the consumer electronics industry.

          So was IBM 30 years ago. Now they're a completely irrelevant company that only makes mainframes or something. Apple doesn't even have something like that to fall back on though. The chinks will eventually eat them in the smartphone business because they can afford much lower profit margins and then it's game over for them.

            Their current business model seems to be: buy out open source maintainers and frick over their users. Thankfully they're buying Hashicorp before any of their crap got popular.

            Wrong, failures decrease consumer confidence, consumer confidence drives their iPhone sales. Apple runs entirely on the "emperor has no clothes" model and those people have no loyalty and the problem with a $3500 headset is if one of those diehard people buy it and realize it's a piece of shit, that's one more person who realizes "you know, Apple is full of shit".

          Apple is dying since Jobs died fro AIDS.

          Apple stocks are a fricking meme. There is no way a company that barely makes 60% of the phones in his home country can be worth so much.
          Everythign else they make is absolute garbage, from inferior computers to incredible unsafe cloud services (do you guys remember fappening?, when a handfull of coomers stolen thousands of sensitive pictures just by reseting the password) and useless memes that only mentaly chalanged people buy, like, "werables" and "vr glasses".

            Ya know, Apple did convince me to open up my wallet... to companies that aren't them. This VR/AR stuff they're working on is genuinely cool to me, but it's clear Apple is crippling it with their business practices. Might get a rival headset or just one of those phone holder VR things and try this stuff out again.

            I think the R&D for making the headset is worth more than actually selling the VR headset, especially the sensor array. I could a scenario where you have the sensor array at your desk. Instead of strapping stupid goggles to your face, the sensors let you interact with a display Minority Report style.

            Maybe the overall market but for a single manufacturer to have 16% of all computer sales in a quarter is phenomenal. Especially one that is seen as the "premium" brand when you can go buy whatever dogshit laptop from Best Buy for a few hundred bucks.

            You may be right with the 7% figure, but how is that measured? If it's all computers in use now then it's a fricked number because nobody gives a shit about your ten year old Dell server.

            Funny enough nobody cares to be rocking a MacBook more than a few years old anyway. They also tend to run like shit and get deprecated fast by Apple.

            >apple barely has 7% of the computer market
            7% of the general computer market, sure. But they have basically a death grip over work computers. If you're doing any kind of art or design, music production, etc., you're gonna be on a Mac.

            >hey have basically a death grip over work computers
            Anon here is right. When so much software is cloud and web based people can now get whatever laptop they want. Executives and managers want Macs, and they always have. The ones that are on PC almost always aren't by choice, but because IT requires it (or sometimes it's contractual).

            The people that want a PC are almost always the tech nerds that refuse to get Apple anything cause it's Apple. I work in media and there's an even split between the two camps, typically necessitated by software, but they're always die-hard. But it's also kind of the roles they have too. The more creative types; audio engineers, graphic designers, editors, go toward Mac whereas the video engineers, live production/broadcast guys lean toward PC.

            I'm the anomaly; I'm the video engineer that would rather use a Mac... woe is me.

            Every laptop I've had that wasn't a MacBook had some dumb fricking problem that turned out to be common for that specific model if you googled it.

            Dead pixels, dead keys, part of the track pad losing sensitivity, the wifi hardware just fricking dying after a few months.

            Frick all that, I don't want to Google 12 different models and make sure they're all six months old so people will have found and discussed the issues.

            I just want to know I can buy it on day one and the basic parts of the hardware don't just fricking die.

            I fricking hate osx but it's the only option if I want something that will still do the basic laptop things after a year.

            as anons have stated, bigger corporations have lost everything within days or months. these numbers are no longer impressive to anyone but their shareholders who have bet the farm on apple stocks never falling to the floor.

            >there's "too big to fail" in the meme sens
            i'm sorry that you are a poorly educated Black person that was born yesterday and think globohomosexual corporations stay profitable forever by selling garbage in a flooded market with superior garbage. if they didn't have the iphone and their store apple would have closed down and sold itself to china decades ago. they're unable to justify the price of their shit anymore when chink competitors are literally wiping the floor with apple. and you know why? because apple, being the genius child sex offenders that they are, did a technology sharing agreement with chinese government. the chinks used apple's tech and manufacturing processes from foxconn and then told everyone to stop using apple's shit because they (and eventually other researchers) found a backdoor in their custom chips that bypassed memory protection.

            Is apple hardware worse than Intel on that? Why is one banned in China but the other isn't?

        Steve defintely would have keep them from straying out into areas where they dont belong. There is plenty of innovating they could be doing, but the just dont. Instead of wasting money and time and cars and headsets. They could have put those resources in Homekit. That has so much potential but its absolute ass since they dont put any effort in, so device makers dont either. They could get back into making routers again, NAS devices...all kinds of stuff they could get into especially with their "privacy" focus. There was no reason to try make a fricking car

        It was marketed as a productivity tool, which is ironic because Apple has completely backed off on their productivity software and tools because those wern't cool and didn't grab headlines, and were content on letting other people make them.

        Apple really should bring back their server line including the mac mini server and maybe make a reasonable home server option (still offer icloud for offsite backups), go hard on their office suite, maybe bribe MS so that it's actually compatible with docx formats without breaking. Maybe build their own equivilant to teams/slack, idk.

      If they had some fricking games or something... but for now you can basically just run normal iOS type apps and they hover around in front of you.

      They need games which use the sensors and detect your environment, then display actual monsters and things to battle as you travel around and go about your day. They could even pop out from behind corners and do jumpscares and stuff. And you could go meet your pals at the park and they'd all look like they had power armor on, and you could fight evil crab shaped bioroids. And they'd come out of the sky and land and you'd have to team up and shoot 'em...

      But no they have tetris that hovers in front of your face. Dactyl Nightmare was quite literally more fun than the best Apple Vision game.

            Notice I didn't say "TV" because "TV" is a nickname, and nicknames are for friends, and television is no friend of mine.

            I've noticed people tend to do this with vices: they shorten the names or use nicknames so it sounds less bad and they can lie to themselves more easily.

            >The Average consumer is an illiterate moron who barely needs a computer for more than watching television
            So like I said, smartphones solved consumer electronics. Everything else is just a solution looking for a problem. Smartwatches? Smart TVs? VR headsets? AI? All completely useless. There is unironically nothing left to invent, it's all just gradual improvements to existing things.

            I've speculated for years that before long a company will make a laptop that's just a weakly specced terminal which connects to a remote computer that's just a session in a datacenter. You'd be able to pay for instant hardware upgrades.

    I think this was a prestige project for Apple
    Trying to restore some of their reputation for building stuff before it is useful or affordable, like the Newton or Lisa
