Episode 12 of the Beyond Devices Podcast is a very Apple-centric episode, with three different topics relating to the company. We kick off with a discussion of this week’s news around Apple in China and Apple’s share price, and tackle whether the market is being rational or irrational around all this. Our Question of the Week is about the current state of in-car technology and Apple’s role in it today and tomorrow, including the prospect of Apple making cars. Our last major topic is the recent changes to Apple’s retail stores and what these signify, especially as we look forward to the launch of new iPhones next month. Aaron wraps up the episode with his Weekly Pick, in which he recommends several websites he uses when he’s looking for guidance when he’s about to buy something.
Links to these websites and other relevant content for this week’s episode may, as always, be found below the SoundCloud player.
