Best of YouTube: Online Dating, Technology Fatigue & What’s The Point Of Apple Vision Pro?

It’s another chance to catch up with Steven and Shaun’s ramblings over on YouTube in this special weekly podcast..

First up they dive into the world of online dating. They’re joined by Fern Lulham, who shares her experiences with online dating platforms like Plenty of Fish, eHarmony, and Bumble, where the ladies start the conversation. Fern discusses the practicality of online dating for those with visual impairments, the safety concerns, and the decision-making process around disclosing her disability.

Next up, the conversation shifts to whether technology, specifically AI, is living up to the hype. Steven and Shaun discuss the potential of AI and how it sometimes falls short in practical applications, like ChatGPT’s limitations. They ponder whether the tech community is experiencing “technology fatigue” due to high expectations and the constant search for the next big thing.

And there’s a  discussion on Apple’s Vision Pro and whether it’s a practical investment for blind users. They debate if the blind community should allow Apple to allocate resources to making Vision Pro accessible, or if those resources would be better spent on improving voiceover capabilities on existing devices. They conclude that while not every product may be designed with blind users in mind, it’s important to ensure accessibility is still considered.
