#1694: OS text display bug fixed, CTA Tech Trends from CES, what TidBITS readers would pay for a Vision Pro, Pong Wars

The important news from last week is that Apple released macOS 14.3.1, iOS 17.3.1, iPadOS 17.3.1, and Safari 17.3.1  to address an annoying bug in WebKit that could cause text to overlap or be duplicated while you were typing. Adam Engst runs down the results of our poll asking how much you’d pay for a Vision Pro based on how much value you’d get from it and shares Pong Wars, an amusing mashup of Pong and Breakout that feels like a hyperactive 8-bit lava lamp. Finally, Jeff Porten rejoins us with coverage of the Consumer Technology Association’s annual Tech Trends to Watch presentation from the recent CES trade show. Notable Mac app releases this week include Lunar 6.6 and Mactracker 7.12.14.
