“If I wanted to pay money to be consistently misunderstood, I’d buy a plane ticket to my mother’s house.”
From Tuesday’s Washington Post: Apple is finally fixing the things people hate most about its laptops:
The demise of MagSafe charging. An inelegant Touch Bar. Limited selection of ports. The laundry list of complaints about Apple’s laptops has steadily grown over the past five years. Now, Apple is finally walking back those changes…
A bewildering new Apple Music subscription This brings us to perhaps the strangest part of Apple’s announcement. The company unveiled a new $4.99-a-month “Apple Music Voice” plan to complement its existing Apple Music subscriptions. The pitch: Control your music selections using voice only.
The details are hazy, but anyone familiar with Siri’s constant mistakes and misfires may be shuddering. If I wanted to pay money to be consistently misunderstood, I’d buy a plane ticket to my mother’s house.
For now, we’ll stick to good old thumbs-on-screen music selection — at least until we understand exactly what value (if any) the voice plan offers.
My take: That got a laugh out of my wife.
