  • So this is pretty much my first non-smartphone related video in over a year! I'm trying something new, so would love some feedback if anything comes to mind! 🙏 For my last video about whether I regret moving to an iPhone: csbuild.info/phone/eaiB1I6Um5mAfJ4/video.html

  • Apple bought beats and still made shit earbuds and headphones like a 80 dollar soundcore liberty pros have more bass than the 180 dollar aipod pros and the 200 Bose quietcomfort 35 ii sound better and have better noise cancelation than the 500 dollar airpod pro max

  • The acquisition of Beats had almost nothing to do with the headphone line, and EVERYTHING to do with Beats Music. If Beats Music never existed that acquisition never happens. The problem I have is despite what anyone says, Beats was INCREDIBLY popular because it fit a niche that wasn’t occupied before it’s existence which was headphones that were more of a fashion statement. While people called the sound quality “terrible” the average person GENUINELY didn’t mind the audio quality with the headphone’s flashy form factor being the main incentive. If we’re being honest the regular AirPods don’t sound all that great either(IMO they sound worse than any pair of Beats I’ve ever used) yet people don’t seem to have problem with them either so I really don’t think audio quality is something Apple prioritized over Beats. I think Apple missed out on huge opportunity because there was still a lot of potential in Beat’s headphone line that Apple’s own line products don’t fulfill(I.e anything stylish)

  • Call out cell phone and data plans. Where I’m from it transition from one year to two years contracts. I couldn’t trade in my iPhone 10 due to the memory size. It was only 128 gigs. Some of my friends are fed up they just buy the phones out right now.

  • Nice, interesting video. I just wanna take a moment to acknoledge the amazing job the editor is doing to keep the videos dynamic and on the right tempo. The handheld camera subtle movements (that i assume are done in post), the cuts and all the b-broll footage are just on point. Even if many people font stop to notice them, they make a huge difference! Cheers

  • Those new Apple headphones are ugly as home grown sin. Who at Apple sat down and said "You know what? I'm going to design a set of headphones that look like they were made from the leftovers of an Autonomous office chair and hub cap covers." Apple could take a dump in a box and people would buy it.

  • Steve Jobs was Not wrong. What he didn’t saw coming was how bad and btw music had become. Yes, you want to own Beatles, Michael Jackson, Elvis etc music. But do I really have to own Justin Bieber music? No. The reason why Sony dominates gaming and Nintendo doesn’t even need subscription services to win against Microsoft is quality. Quality in their own products. Streaming only works if the products are low budget and low quality. And I mean not 1 product, I’m talking about a Long period of Time. Adele sold over 40M Lps of their Album 21, because of quality. Same with the latest album. Music sells but only if the quality is good and people truly love it. So much that they want to support the artist. Otherwise > stream. Of course, exceptions exist also here. People who can’t afford, etc.

  • You forgot about Jimmy Iovine. You're right about the impetus for the purchase being the streaming service, but the reason Beats Music had such a large reach was due to Jimmy Iovine's involvement. He's the reason Apple bought Beats - It was like the scene in Inception where the dude bought the airline because "It seemed cleaner".

  • I remember when Apple bought Beats. But I didn't find it strange at all at the time. The fashion first headphone brand for people who don't care about sound was bought by the fashion first tech brand for people who don't care about technology. What's strange about that?
