  1. AR has been used for quite a while wrt language translators. I had a Spanish guest a few years ago with an app that would translate text (books, signs, menus) on the fly with AR technology. I don’t remember what it was. It blew my mind!

  2. Apple often releases products where demand drastically outstrips availability. My recent Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus is just one recent example. Waiting a week for my AirPods aren’t that big a deal. And after 2-3 days having to wait 6 weeks is no different than when the Apple Watch came out. All that matters long term relate to how good they are.
