So what did you think about the WWDC 2023 presentation? I think it was ok, but not impressed by many things. Of course, I already installed all the beta updates, and I really like the Snoopy watch face. But other than that, all the updates were very iterative, like Apple is scared to do drastic changes. It’s a bit depressing that the overall UI of smartphones (and also PCs) have not changed in over 15 years. I can’t believe that there is no possible advance in this field. I do miss Windows Mobile, as that was just better. But given how Apple just keeps taking things from it (and Android) every time, it will be there one day.
Same with the Vision Pro. Looks really impressive, but I saw it all when Microsoft introduced Hololens years ago. Yes, it’s more refined, and it has more power, but no surprise there. Technology advanced since then. But I have not seen any new use cases at all. Let’s see how a 2nd or 3rd generation is if they ever make one.
Blue hour at the Matthias Church
Let’s move to another country today, to Hungary, with a photo of the Mathias Church in Budapest. You can actually also see a part of the Fisherman’s Bastion here, as I was standing on top of it while taking this photo. There is a walkway you can use, so it is easy to get there. And you don’t have to pay in the evening.
This is a two-shot vertorama, combined in Photoshop. I did have to clean up a few people, using the Generative Fill in Photoshop (beta). It really is helpful.
