No Idea

Matt at birthtree thinks Apple gave us a glimpse of the future with the iPhone X.

What was so radical about the iPhone X versus the iPhone 8?

No headphone jack.
No home button.

Same rectangle of glass (different type) and same OS.

Not very radical, or future looking to me.

It looks pretty good to me. I think I'll take one in Red


Rain steady on the roof. Far shore lost. Sea quiet,
gray, introspective – like me, I think, entering

to enter the world’s drama as player, not just reflex
towards food or away from the saber-tooth.
