Morning After: Getting the right camera without glasses in 2021
It’s been a week full of Apple’s new gadgets, with new iMacs, new iPad Pros, and a new iPhone, even if it’s just a new purple color. Apple has also announced a new spin on podcasts – a subscription service. Meanwhile, NASA’s Mars rover has been producing Oxygen on the red planet, sending Signal messages back Mortal Kombat and also, well, back. And if you are buying a glassless camera, we have updated our 2021 guide.

The new 24-inch model is slightly larger than the last 21.5 inches.
Apple’s M1 chip is now moving to iMacs, along with a slew of other long-awaited features. The new design features a very small bezel on their 4.5K Retina retina, as well as a full rear toilet. These new iMacs replace 1080p FaceTime cameras with large image sensors. They will be able to work in conjunction with the M1 processor to deal with white matter, noise reduction and visual effects. There are also three microphones that can use beamforming to reduce background noise.
The new 24-inch iMac is available starting at $ 1,299 with a 7-core GPU. The 8-core GPU, with three USB 3 ports, starts at $ 1,499. Keep reading.
Most money is good, unless you can afford it.
At Apple’s “Spring Loaded” event on Tuesday, along with all the equipment, the company decided to offer the latest payment for podcasts – a change that could be significant in a growing market.
Starting next month, podcasters will be able to set their own price and Apple will charge 30% for the first year of each subscription, down to 15% afterwards. Apple is launching the service as a way to help creators be able to offer a premium vanilla app, preliminary access or premium special features. It’s a big change and probably one of the biggest players in the podcast. James Trew broke up. Keep reading.
There’s a lot more going on than just testing drone pilots.
Along with a photo of the family of its robotic siblings, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab completed the Survival with a device called the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment or MOXIE for short. On April 20th, it effectively released carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and converted it into oxygen.
A toaster-tolerant tool to withstand the separation of oxygen atoms and carbon dioxide molecules by heating the air at about 1,470 degrees Fahrenheit and producing carbon monoxide as a by-product. On the first test of the weapon, it released about five grams of oxygen or nearly enough to give the occupant around the ship about 10 minutes of oxygen in their suit. Keep reading.
They may look ordinary, but the contents are very different.
We’ve touched on the expansion of the M1 device, but when it comes to the larger 12.9-inch model, the technology on the screen is probably a big change. It has a Liquid Retina XDR panel, with a new mini lighting app. Because each illumination is very small, this means a well-controlled lighting lighting with good contrast and a wide range of full illumination. The new iPad app can reach 1,000 light, compared to 600 nits of last year’s model.
With the Chip M1 within all versions of the iPad Pro, these are iPads that carry the power of the desktop. To achieve this, the new iPad Pro USB-C port also expands as a Thunderbolt port with USB 4.0 support. Apple says the cable connection rate rises around 40Gbps, to ensure that power users with external security players need to be satisfied. All races will continue to order on April 30th. Keep reading.
The company may change its subscription program to reduce future attempts.
The thief company that Cellebrite said had found a way to connect the Signal protected app, the company announced that it would do the same in retaliation. Developer Moxie Marlinspike says his team found a Cellebrite hijacker and encountered a number of problems. He also said that Signal could revise its program to protect any legal endeavors.

Apple’s Airtag arrives. Fobs can be customized with text, letters and emoji, while there will also be a Hermes type if you have fun. You can use the Find My app to find your AirTag and any Apple phone with a U1 chip (like the iPhone 11 and 12 series) can give you AR covers to guide you to your lost item.
The company calls this Precision Finding, which combines cameras, accelerometer, gyroscope and ARKit data, along with ultra-wideband technology, to track what you have lost. Your product is far away, Apple says it will use the Find My network, which is close to a billion devices, to find it. It will detect Bluetooth calls from lost AirTags and “send the site to owners, all backwards, anonymously and privately.” We already gave them rapid testing, too. Keep reading.
But wait, there is more …
