Addressing a negative review: JGR627 on 03/19/2019It hurts me to update my review and change it from 5 stars to 1 but every week I listen and every week I get taunted by both Sebastian and Cody and I have had enough of it! The conversation you have are great! What kills me and bothers my soul is when you both say “let’s continue the conversation on Twitter” I have reached out to both of you guys to get 0 response! I get it we have lives and we’re busy but to constantly say reach us on Twitter and not respond was what pushed me over the edge. I will continue to listen and I will try to engage with you both again in the future. Until then this might be my greatest review ever! 😉 still.

244: Something to keep an eye on
01:06:57

Apple Maps outages sometimes can't be avoided, but can Apple communicate better about them? Should Apple ditch the Lightning connector for USB-C? Is Apple really not merging iOS and macOS? Are Siri shortcuts a bigger deal than we may think at first? Does the TV content Apple is signing deals for tell a lot about the company's strategy in general? Many questions that may or may not find an answer on this episode.
