Apple’s augmented reality glasses are set to debut as early as the second quarter of 2020, according to an analyst note Wednesday. Ming-Chi Kuo, a TF International Securities analyst with a strong track record on Apple’s next moves, claimed in a note seen by MacRumors that the glasses would be advertised as an accessory for the iPhone, acting mostly as a display while the smartphone handles the computing and other complex tasks. This is expected to ensure that the glasses will remain slim and light, avoiding the need to pack the set with high-end computer chips. The description chimes with CEO Tim Cook’s ultimate vision of an augmented reality world where people treat their headset as something that adds information to their view.

Elon Musk: Starlink latency will be good enough for competitive gaming

Article | June 7, 2021

SpaceX's Starlink satellite broadband will have latency low enough to support competitive online gaming and will generally be fast enough that customers won't have to think about Internet speed, Elon Musk said at a conference yesterday. Despite that, the SpaceX CEO argued that Starlink won't be a major threat to telcos because the satellite service won't be good enough for high-population areas and will mostly be used by rural customers without access to fast broadband.

Super-bundle plans reportedly missing from Apple Music’s new deals

Article | June 7, 2021

This is the ‘super-bundle’ that we (and the wider industry) have been speculating about ever since Apple revealed plans to launch subscription services for video, news and games – Apple TV+, Apple News+ and Apple Arcade respectively. From Apple’s point of view (not to mention its customers’) a single, discounted subscription covering its range of services makes a lot of sense. Music rightsholders are wary, however, with plenty of uncertainty around how the royalties from such a super-bundle would be divided between the different forms of entertainment.
