So OpenAI just launched GPT-4o.

“o” for omni. Or maybe “o-h no” because that what many builders of AI wrapper apps will be saying after today. As I watched the demos, I kept going “Damn!”. In an impressed sort of way. No, scratch that. In a mindblown sort of way is more accurate.

My top fav demos and moments:

One small step for AI, a giant massacre for indie AI wrapper apps.

But with every new wave of products killed also means new ideas and opportunities that become possible. What new opportunities are there?

  • Realtime conversational AI apps, like for life coaching, therapy, education
  • Audio versions of everything - story books, novels, comics. Get it to tell stories to your kid.
  • Great features for travel - point cam at something and have it explain to you what that is, like an audio guide for a museum. Translate in realtime when ordering food, buying stuff.
  • I can speak to every doc on my laptop using the desktop app - PDFs, word docs, excel, websites, everything.

What other ideas and opportunities are there for new products?


I just tried the voice chat in my phone, and wow, it feels like I am talking to Her.

Wow. That looks amazing. Yes - a real life version of Her incoming!

I tried voice chat but I’m having a mental block. I’m so used to typing out long multi-paragraph prompts.

@drodol @tao @Winkletter Right!!! It’s like Her, made real. Now all OpenAI got to do is to commission ScarJo to do the voice acting for the AI…
