    ‘Good News, My House Burned Down’, With Special Guest Matthew Panzarino

    Thursday, 13 April 2017

We talk about what went wrong with the 2013 Mac Pro design, speculate on the timeline of when Apple made this decision, why touchscreen Macs are almost certainly a bad idea even though a lot of people think they want one, and more.
