Apple Inc’s chief executive officer Tim Cook is on a surprise visit to Thailand, posting on his personal twitter account on Friday (December 13):

 

“สวัสดี Thailand! My journey this morning along the Chao Phraya River culminated in a visit to the peaceful Wat Arun. Thank you Jirasak Panpiansin for showing me this historic temple through your lens. (IG: joez19)”

Jirasak Panpiansin is a Thai photographer whose portfolio appeared on Apple’s instagram account in April 2017.

 

Cook later posted another tweet of him visiting students at Satit-Chulalongkorn school in Bangkok’s Pathum Wan district. There has been no official report of his visit to Thailand but the chief of the tech giant last week called on Seiko Advance in Japan and Singapore Airlines in Singapore.

Even better: mount the 400 USD wheels under your desktop.

Makes it look worthy.

And the trackball is thrown out for a laughable 50 USD.

Like you can seriously distinguish between 4k and 6k when little is being shot or game developed even in 4k.  This whole 8k thing is a sales gimmick.

 

And I can build such a windows machine for a whole lot less then this with the same standards.  One of my buds used to work at the Intel research center in Fort Collins CO, his machine seriously rocks for not much money.  Learned a lot from him.

Absolutely laughable.

Even for 4k and a screen size of 50 inch you would need a viewing distance of 1 meter (40 inch) to see a difference to a lower resolution (with good eye sight).

And this Apple XDR is 32 inch(!) and 6k(!).

Almost stick your nose to the display.

 

Same gimmick is 6 inch smartphone display with 4k. Just to swank with numbers.
