Stepping Down

In the meantime, I’d like a phone that fits in my pocket and does the few things I need. I'll wait and see if there's an AI offering that I desperately need to have in my pocket.

Enough Already

AI. Artificial Intelligence. Apple Intelligence. Assistive Intelligence. If you’re here for a knowledgeable insight into the recent rash of announcements and presentations from the tech giants, then you have been misdirected. I haven’t a clue what I’m talking about.
