😺 iPhone of AI

PLUS: There are only 3 AI tools you need to use.

Welcome, humans.

Quick note: Our Live Q&A is on hold due to a schedule clash. We reckon this wouldn't happen if AI were running our calendars, but hey, Calendly usually gets the job done.

Side thought: Who's up for creating a Tinder-esque Calendly? Swipe left for "Busy," and swipe right for "I'll book a flight to see you right now!"

Here’s what you need to know about AI today:

  • OpenAI & Jony Ive might raise $1B to build an AI device.

  • 90% of newsrooms use AI in some way to create news.

  • Amazon Bedrock is generally available.

OpenAI And Jony Ive Might Raise $1B For An AI Device.


So, these two dudes might raise $1B from SoftBank to build the “iPhone of artificial intelligence.” No — it’s not Noah and Pete (bummer).

  1. Sam Altman, cofounder of OpenAI (best software ever).

  2. Jony Ive, designer of the iPhone (best hardware ever).

It’s still “early stage”, and this would technically be an OpenAI venture, but boy-o-boy would this be monumental.

And it got us thinking: Ive helped design the iPhone/Mac/iPad now wants to create something new with AI  so what could this "new" thing be?

Here is what’s coming: The future user interfaces on our devices are set for a major facelift.

Right now, it looks like this: click device unlock swipe select app search tap. But guess what? AI can do all of this for us.

Word on the street is that the next-gen device will be "more natural and intuitive,” or in simpler terms, an all-knowing AI assistant that does the legwork. (Apple's might be moving this way, albeit at a snail’s pace).

Will it be a phone? A headset? TBD……..

These Are The Only Three AI Tools You Need.

You’ve heard it a million times. Like a broken record. You get it.

“Just use AI to do _______.”

It’s jargon that your tech-y friends just love saying. Use AI? How? And for what?

We went digging on HN to uncover how people are actually using AI and how they’re doing it. Here’s the TLDR:

1. Coding (ChatGPT, GitHub Copilot, Phind).

  • Writing/debugging/autocompleting code faster.

  • Implementing infrastructure-as-code.

  • Converting code between languages.

  • Auto-generating boilerplate code.

2. Writing (ChatGPT, Claude)

  • Writing emails, letters, marketing copy.

  • Translating text.

  • Outlining written content.

  • Emulating specific writing styles.

3. Searching/Research (Claude, ChatGPT Code Interpreter, GitHub Copilot).

  • Summarizing long documents.

  • Data extraction from documents.

  • Finding code samples and explanations.

  • Explaining concepts/tutorials.

Why it matters: There are a million standalone AI tools. If you’re just starting out, don’t overcomplicate it. Start with the big three: ChatGPT, Claude, and GitHub Copilot (for code).

We'll keep you posted if this changes. Share your own AI use cases in the comments!
