Well they say that this is the year for virtual reality but it has been here for a few years but I think now they have more to offer being advanced.

virtual reality
Virtual reality has a variety of things of offer like being a virtual assistant working from home in the virtual world instead of just working for someone in person. So they have many services in the virtual world and that's great.

We always build the rocket on the way to orbit, and that's the way to do it
If the world were under some sort of centralized Bureau of Innovation for economics and technology, then the poster might be a fair representation of how VR is going to arrive. But the pattern after 80 years or so of cybernetic development (starting with the first tentative experiments just before WW2) is more that

1) A thingbuilder builds a Thing because it is cool

2) the envisioner sees the Vision, a way to make a Thing do something the thingbuilder never envisioned, and describes the vision,

3) while a big, centralized effort to make the Thing do the Vision is just getting off the ground, dozens of scruffy garage-tinkerer types build limited and partial versions of the Vision that don't work very well,

4) thus creating a large market demand, so that the early versions that don't work very well become the basis for rapid full development.

That rocket diagram looks like a well-planned sleek assembly is going to deliver the carefully thought out apps and content payload, using equally well-thought out systems of advanced technology. Bet instead that there will be a swarm of ill planned and barely designed tech and apps and then after a while the evolutionary process will sort it out into something that nearly works.

A more truthful picture would be multiple loose assemblages of pipes, tanks, and nozzles trying to take off, some exploding, some fizzling, and a few soaring. On the ones that soar are frantic astronauts and engineers trying to finish the project before they get to orbit.

In particular VR will probably be functioning before anyone gets content figured out. Think of the early days of radio, television, the web, or of what music videos looked like in 1983, or for that matter all the strange things that the first few generations after Gutenberg printed and committed to paper. We will begin with  a generation of VR content that will look embarrassing and/or weird compared to everything that comes after -- just as happened with every other communication medium in its infancy.

Re: AI
As long as companies stay focused, you cannot be great at anyone product if you are delivering multiple products at the same time. I think they need to slow down and focus on one great product and deliver that product then develop the next. Companies are trying to outperform the other and missing the mark.

Re: AI
That's a very interesting.

I always just think that businesses are working towards the next big phone ideas. I'm glad that you heard of other branching out and focusing on other things that are just as important.

While it's not quite the same, I was just reading an article about Microsoft and AI; they say that the newest phone is not their focus this year, but AI technology that can be used in the boardroom (i.e. in corporations) are their focus...
