        I'm curious what the order says about their priorities. Used to be iOS was last because it was the most important or had the most changes. This year it was #2, and vision OS was #1, so... either they've flipped the order or there's no order.

        So if I understand it correctly it is "translate your games to work on our stuff" not using the open industry standards like vulkan? And not Apple Silicon builds of games through multiple game stores like Steam, but buy it again through the app store?

          June 10, 2024 12:12 PM

          It is correct that it's to help you port your games to Apple-specific tech, namely Metal. Apple doesn't support Vulkan natively at the OS level. The Vulkan website does have downloads for macOS but I don't know how well that works, and there's an open source project called MoltenVK that works as a translation layer between Vulkan and Metal, it's how I have vkQuake running on the Mac (though the author of the port is the one who explained how)

          But once you have the game ported over you can sell it however you like. I'm not sure if they were saying BG3 used GPTK (probably not, development of it predated GPTK) but BG3 for Apple Silicon is on Steam. Same as No Man's Sky. A few ports like Death Stranding and RE8 were App Store exclusives but likely because either they wanted to get paid again for another copy or, in the case of DS and RE4, they also put it out for iPhone and that meant a Universal Purchase where you could get it across devices.

          But no there's no rule that says your GPTK games have to be on the App Store, you can distribute them however you like.

          One of the things GPTK had was a library that, long story short, you could use to run your Direct3D games on the Mac directly. The licensing of it was such that you couldn't just ship this as your solution but it was big in helping devs see that yes, their shit could run on the Mac. There's an open source project called Whisky that uses it to let end user gamers just run games that work through it. I'm curious if GPTK2 has something like that for Vulkan.

        Probably not with this release. Creating images and having it remember some stuff isn’t exactly the killer usage most people need or are really wanting. Plus there’s years of annoyance with digital assistants that will require users to be re-trained to utilize what they’re now capable of. My usage of them is limited to “turn on this light”, “nevermind, or “stfu, nobody was talking to you.”

        It'll land well if they nail the integration. It needs to be seamless. Erase the concept of 'AI', it's stupid and just gets in the way.

        Make it a fun image generator for Messages. Or make Siri not suck nuts for anything other than setting timers. Make searching easy and effective. Proper machine learning models make all of this stuff possible.

        The next iOS release will mark the largest uptake of 'AI' powered technologies without anyone really realizing that's what's happening.

        If they just use it for making things like siri and suggestions better when it's actually ready for that then people will like it. Otherwise they won't.

        I imagine image gen is done in the cloud most of the time, so probably a legal/PR risk. e.g. they don't want people using Apple devices for disinformation.

              or just say 'where's the package for the __ I ordered last week?' which Siri should be able to find find in your email and open the tracking information for and parse and read back to you

                June 10, 2024 11:55 AM

                As long as Amazon adds support for that sure, but reality will likely be that it launches the Amazon app expecting it to open the tracking but the app will instead show you nothing.

                  June 10, 2024 12:03 PM

                  They would be massively limiting its capabilities if they only allow it to do things based on 3rd party API integration. Siri should be fully capable of answering that question by silently browsing to Amazon.com and finding that information for me without the need for an Amazon app + API integration.

                    June 10, 2024 12:17 PM

                    To be fair I just looked and the tracking link in an Amazon email will open directly to the tracking.

                    So at best without APIs it can at least open the app and show you, but it wouldn’t be able to tell you the results.

                    But you are right that instancing the request in the background and scraping what the app/site shows could do what you want.

                    The whole point is that this isn’t some magical solution and asking Siri to do stuff will not be without pitfalls still.

                  I'm speaking much more generally than Amazon packages. I'm thinking any shipping notification email with a tracking number in it. Siri already understands the patterns for tracking numbers today - I'm expecting AI Siri could extract the tracking number and throw it to the app Parcel while also figuring out the item description from the email. Parcel would need to expose the record fields in Siri intents, but I expect they will.

            I was thinking about that airport demo and wondering what info the mom would need to send for the AI to answer the questions. The mom would need to send specific info via text “I am landing on Sunday the 10th at 230pm on aouthwest airlines flight 567” for it work right?

            A normal text of “I come home Sunday at 230” wouldn’t be enough for the AI to figure out because it doesn’t specify what airport or airline

              I've always shared my actual flight number with people. That's a way better source of info than "come get me at 2pm" because flights can be delayed or cancelled.

              And in that case, the phone will be able to retrieve all the info it needs. Airport, airline, terminal, arrival time, baggage claim, etc.

              So I guess you say "Mom, just tell me your flight."

        I think it's definitely worth heading to the store and checking out a demo. I didn't find the passthrough to be the game changer some people have been hyping it up to be, it still feels like holding the preview screen from a cell phone camera up to your eyes even if it is a bit less grainy than the competition, but the overall look and layout of VisionOS is really nice.

            When I did mine I signed up for a time slot and then, when I went in, they had a rep sit me down in a quiet room and bring out a sanitized headset and then walk me through roughly 30 minutes of demos. Depending on how long it takes for them to show you all the controls, you should have a chance to check out stuff like the immersive photos and videos, virtual environments, etc.

            The tech was undeniably cool. But, as someone who has now owned multiple headsets, it definitely felt more iterative than innovative. That said, I'm intrigued to see what a second version will be like if and when it releases.

        Okay, but can you read the scroll offset, yet? I'm currently making an alternate slider where an arbitrarily-wide, ruler-like image scrolls under a fixed indicator (basically a machine gauge). I wanted to use all SwiftUI for it, but the hoops you have to jump through to read the scroll view's offset (to calculate the output value of the slider) are just gross. I ended up doing the slider in UIKit and wrapping it in a UIViewRepresentable wrapper for SwiftUI.
