Report 'sees' upside to cutting iPhone X production
Apple Inc., will slow production of its flagship iPhone – the $999 iPhone X – by 50 percent in the first three months of 2018 because of a lack of demand, according to a Nikkei report.

Perhaps as Moore's Law falters and computation transitions from deterministic architectures to a mix of von Neumann and neuromorphic computing, the benefits of the two-year upgrade are less apparent. There may also be a growing awareness amongst consumers that replacing a phone every two years – or even more frequently – drives enormous profits for the consumer electronics giants while making little difference to their own lives, except the cultivation of near-focus eye-strain and social-media driven anxiety.

It is to be hoped that in the coming era of voice-command, computer vision and sensor and neural networks these technologies can be used to create genuine common wealth.
