$3,500 For Goggles Is Absolutely Absurd

Yesterday Apple released their first look at a product costing $3,500.

They’re goggles.

Like, you put em on your head and you can, SIGH, do stuff, I guess?

Apple calls them “Vision Pro,” and apparently they’re awesome.

I don’t care.

And honestly, I don’t know why everyone who’s so wrapped up in taxing the rich and hating Elon Musk for having billions is going so gaga over a pair of goggles that cost $3,500.

I thought we were better than this.

Apple’s target market is exactly .1% of the population with this B.S.

Congrats, you’re going crazy for a product that only rich people can afford. In the middle of what many believe to be the beginning of an economic downturn. And you gassing Apple up on social media is just giving them more publicity so they can make more and more money.

Casey Neistat, one of my favorite creators and world-renown liberal, said he’s willing to pay 1 million dollars for a pair.

I don’t understand why people are so obsessed with Apple. They make great products, sure, but the prices they charge are abhorrent.

I’m writing this on a Macbook Pro that had to get its keyboard and battery changed six months…
