This talk addresses the sonic and gender politics of contemporary pre natal speaker technologies. It will ask what kind of futures, temporalities and ‘listeners’ these devices seek to produce via (certain forms of) music. Through considering the hierarchical relations between production and reproduction, I will suggest that these seemingly new uterine sound technologies are shaped by longstanding notions of feminized mediation, audiophilia and fidelity..

That very much in line with Apple long term positioning of itself as a purveyor of pricey aspirational gadgets.But it also a clear sign that Apple is ramping up that strategy by continuing to push its prices higher, even though improvements it bringing to its products are often incremental or derivative. Among other things, that runs contrary to decades in which high tech device prices have fallen over time, often dramatically, even as the gadgets themselves ran faster and acquired new powers.On Tuesday, for instance, Apple also introduced a TV streaming box that will sell for $179, far more than similar devices, and a smartwatch with its own cellular connection that will cost almost $400. In December, Apple will start selling an internet connected speaker, the HomePod, priced at $349, nearly twice as much as Amazon market leading Echo speaker.Apple is also raising the price of its runner up phones, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which will respectively cost $50 and $30 more than their immediate predecessors, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.PAYING MORE FOR SOMEWHAT MOREThe premium pricing strategy reflects Apple long held belief that consumers will pay more for products that are so well designed they can fathom living without them.Apple CEO Tim Cook left little doubt in the company confidence in the iPhone X (pronounced whose name references the decade that passed since company co founder Steve Jobs first pulled out an iPhone that sold for $499.Cook attempted to frame the iPhone X as a similar breakthrough, hailing it as biggest leap forward since the original iPhone.But the original iPhone revolutionized society by putting connected hand held computers and apps into the hands of millions of ordinary people.
