In this episode of 'A Vision for Learning', host Jethro Jones discusses his recent 'phone phast', an intentional disconnect from his phone in preparation for acquiring the upcoming Apple Vision Pro. Reflecting on his growing reliance on his phone, Jethro shares the realizations he had during his fast, especially his need for better presence with his family and a clear focus on his professional commitments. He also talks about 'locking in' - a concept of staying focused, as well as how he intends to use the Apple Vision Pro as a specialized work device. The host concludes with his thoughts on the potential applications of the device and his anticipation about its upcoming release.
