Spotify Cries to the EU that Apple is Bullying Them, but is Really Just After More Money

Spotify has decided that running to the EU and crying in public on their blog (which I refuse to link here. If you want to see it, use Google) is the best course of action to protect themselves from the big, bad Apple. In case you can’t tell, I do not care for their arguments or any that currently relate to Apple and anti-trust laws as they stand today.

Apple’s AR Glasses May Be Coming Sooner Than Initially Expected

Everyone knows that Apple is heavily invested in Augmented Reality. Just as with the Apple Watch, Tim Cook has telegraphed Apple’s intentions with plenty of comments about their “interest.” Add in Apple’s ARKit, which is the perfect preparatory test bed to get developers working on AR software ahead of a hardware release, the money Apple is spending on R&D these days, and the AR-focused hires we know Apple has been making, and you have all the proof you need that Apple is working on getting into AR hardware early.
