Episode 297: They Probably Have A Plan

Daniel and Manton talk more about Apple’s new product lineup, and the difficulty of choosing which products to buy, if any. They speculate more about the merits of cellular usefulness on Apple Watch, and compare the iPhone X with the also-great iPhone 8. They also talk about new macOS and staying up to date with latest developer tools. Finally, they touch on the difficulty of making product decisions that even a small percentage of customers will be upset by.
