Re: Jony Ive departure… This has seemed necessary for a while. Ive strikes me as a guy who has great aesthetic taste, but mediocre judgement when it comes to overall product design. That is, he’s great at making products look good, but only so-so at balancing tradeoffs among aesthetics, functionality, and cost. Steve Jobs was great at balancing all of those tradeoffs.

[quote<]Valve Index review @ Engadget[/quote<]So I picked up a sale PlayStation VR recently, and I'm starting to "get" VR. Seeing the reviews of the Index are largely promising.
