A Pre-Order Theory ➝

Matt Hauger, with a theory on why devices like the AirPods Pro are available for pre-order immediately:

I wonder: how did Apple decide that these devices would be available for preorder immediately? Why not a few days later, as with the new iPhones? Here’s a cynical theory: maybe less expensive items (like the AirPods or the Watch) are more likely to be impulse buys. The customer doesn’t get a chance to weigh her purchase carefully. Instead, she acquiesces to the lizard-brain desire that Apple’s marketing engenders.

I would guess that Apple primarily decides when devices are available to pre-order based on their expected demand and how many units they’ll actually have on the ship date. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the idea of impulse buying comes into the conversation at some point. I mean, they do need to actually sell these products after all.

AirPods Pro Impressions ➝

Some nice thoughts and impressions from Marius Masalar on the newly released AirPods Pro.

I’ve never used in-ear headphones or anything with active noise cancelation before. I’m still pretty happy with my second generation AirPods, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up with the new Pro model at some point. I’ll be traveling more frequently for work next year and I wouldn’t mind blocking out a bit more noise while I’m flying.

I’m sure I’d see a lot of benefits using them at home, too. With Josh in our lives, family and friends are stopping over a bit more frequently. Which is typically a joy, but can be quite distracting while I’m working. The AirPods Pro might be just what I need to ensure I’m able to keep my focus.
