Essential Apple Podcast 85: Investing in the Alien Star World

The Kelly Guimont Show No. 2

Recorded 29th April 2018

It is REALLY late - we are sorry, but Mark is still suffering with his health and although I took over mid week I had a lot of other things going on... Apologies again.

This week Apple officially killed the Airport products; Intel delayed their next chips (probably meaning a 32GB MacBook Pro isn't on the cards yet)… Rumours abound about poor iPhone sales, the projected death of Touch 3D, AR/VR headsets and more. Whether or not we will get to talk about any of that is anyone's guess as we are joined for a second time by the delightfully piquant Kelly Guimont.
