thinking about how the imac is the general purpose "for everyone" all-you-need personal macintosh device and the stand is so short that seemingly 95% of them are placed on top of 1-2 large books

yeah they're pretty poorly designed

yes, the $1000 stand was adjustable

the $1000 stand that comes with a free iMac is not

also just turn off the head tracking stuff because it sucks especially if you're walking around

the audeze mobius has a neat mode where it still responds to short-term head movement but will level out after a few seconds. works great on the train cause otherwise the track turning would constantly move the center point

like tbqh i am loving all the apple music gimmicks. spatial audio is a fun little nothingburger. i think it would be much better for movies but i also wanna hear some edm mixed in insane ways with this technology. apple sing fuckin rules because i started going back to karaoke regularly before the holidays and while its flawed in many ways its super useful overall. idk what niche apple classical will hit for me but i actually do love all these dumb gimmick features.



the one thing that is loving offensive to me tho is that you cant put a little play controller on the widget stacks like of all the loving things people want in a smart stack i fuckin guarantee you play controls are top of list. the widget just launches the app and thats fuckin annoying

maybe, guess we'll have to see

i recall the 27" i7 imac being in that price range, and i would want the lil one so there might be some headroom

or maybe they'll never make what i want at a price point that represents a good value, and ill keep using my old junk :shrug:

the i7 imac was trash for idiots tho, they probably had to lowball the price or even dentists wouldn’t buy them

seriously wondering if they made the last couple of intel generations deliberately bad so that apple silicon would look miraculous

the only problem with using your phone as a webcam is that you can’t browse your phone when the meeting becomes boring or pointless
