Thinking Different About Apple AI

Lauren Goode: That’s my guess.

Michael Calore: … I’d be shocked if they let you use it on airplanes.

Lauren Goode: Well, airplanes, I think it would be the most useful just for 2FA.

Michael Calore: Yes.

Lauren Goode: Have you ever had that experience where this happens a lot? I go to log in to my Condé email when I’m on a plane and I get … Mike’s shaking his head.

Michael Calore: No.

Lauren Goode: And I’m not logged in, so I’m like, “OK, I got to log in,” and then I have to authenticate and I’m waiting for the 2FA code and I can’t get it because it comes via SMS.

Michael Calore: Yeah, no.

Lauren Goode: Why are you saying no? It’s not happened to you?

Michael Calore: No, I don’t work on airplanes. Airplanes are me time.

Lauren Goode: Who are you? What have you done with Michael?

Michael Calore: I’m a person who does not work on air … I’ve never worked on an airplane.

Lauren Goode: What do you do on airplanes?

Michael Calore: I read, I sleep, I listen to podcasts, I stare out the window.

Lauren Goode: Watch B movies.

Michael Calore: Yeah, no, I watch excellent movies.

Lauren Goode: Do you cry?

Michael Calore: Sometimes.

Lauren Goode: Just in general or from the movies?

Michael Calore: From the Apple Vision Pro putting pressure on my face.

Lauren Goode: Touche. Well, sometimes I work … All right. Sometimes I don’t want to work and I just want to spend the time clearing out my inbox.

Michael Calore: Yeah, that’s still work.

Lauren Goode: It is, but it’s mindless work. It’s just like batch select, mark as spam, delete.

Michael Calore: That’s what Uber rides are for.

Lauren Goode: No, I get nauseous in the back of an Uber when I do that. Anyway. I really hope this satellite messaging works on planes, but you know people are going to abuse that, right? Let’s say there’s … Not abuse it, that’s not the right word, but …

Michael Calore: Oh, sure.

Lauren Goode: … what is deemed essential will be different for different people.

Michael Calore: Oh, yes.

Lauren Goode: Someone’s in a massive fight with their spouse and they’re like, “I got a text right now,” or something like that, versus, “I need to make an emergency call.”

Michael Calore: I’m sure all of us have been in a situation where we either send or receive a text right before they tell us that we have to go into airplane mode and then we spend the entire rest of the airplane ride with our brains spinning. Imagine if that was a thing of the past. Imagine if you didn’t have to worry about that anymore. You could just—

Lauren Goode: It’s too soon.
