The U.S. government has filed a lawsuit against Apple, accusing the tech giant of engaging in anticompetitive behavior within its App Store. The lawsuit alleges that Apple’s strict rules and high fees for developers stifle competition and innovation, leading to inflated prices for consumers. Apple defends its policies as necessary for maintaining a secure platform and supporting developers. The outcome of the lawsuit could have significant implications for the tech industry and the digital marketplace.

We invited our friend, Mike Boyd to comment and discuss on the issue. 

Oppo announced their latest Air Glass 3 at MWS last month. We invited Michael Tran
Director of Global Marketing and Brand Strategy of Oppo Australia to tak about this latest innovation. They are also launching their newest Reno model, The Reno 11 F.   Bringing users closer to AI experiences with the world’s lightest binocular aR glasses.

Thanks to its ability to understand various data types, including text, images, video, and audio, multimodal AI technology is able to process and interpret more complex user scenarios, unlocking new potential in user interactions, such as voice and visual. While XR (extended reality) devices present new possibilities in implementing these features, they require both advanced functionality and lightweight designs if they are to truly take on the role of a personal, everyday smart assistant. Driven by this vision, OPPO has introduced the all-new OPPO Air Glass 3 prototype to explore the possibilities of AI technology based on cross-device collaboration between XR devices and smartphones.
