Apple moves beyond headphone jack with iPhone 7

AirPods

It’s been rumored for months, and now Apple has confirmed that the new iPhone 7 will not have a headphone jack. This will likely disappoint millions of users who have invested in cool headphones over the years, but now it’s time to get new gear if you want the new iPhone.

Apple also introduced the new AirPods pictured above, which look like cool headphones but right away highlight one critical issue – these things will be very easy to lose! Big headphones are one thing, but these small ones can easily be lost as they’ll no longer be attached to a cord.

Apple points out that the new AirPods will be very easy to use as you can simply take them out and they’re ready to use with all your devices. You can put them in your ears and they connect instantly. They can sense when they’re in your ears and pause when you take them out.

So this will be an adjustment for many consumers, but Apple tends to change habits with their designs and it will be interesting to see how these new devices are adopted.

Fitbit sales leadership isn’t reflected in stock performance

In the video above, Fitbit CEO James Park addresses an interesting dilemma for Fitbit, as the company’s stock price has under-performed since its IPO. The company is a leader in its space as the top fitness tracker on the market, and the Apple Watch hasn’t dented its momentum. It’s also in the exploding wearables category, which offers huge potential growth. But skeptics haven’t rewarded the company with increases in the stock price. Park explains that there is some concern that the company is just a one-product company.

Comedy and Virtual Reality

Is this a fit?

The video raises the question of whether stand-up comedy will be a fit for virtual reality. It may not seem like the best fit, but wouldn’t it be cool if we could figure out a way to have us sitting in the front row for a classic comedy concert, maybe with a hologram of Eddie Murphy or Chris Rock?

We might be surprised as to what takes off.
