Episode 414: Everybody’s Looking For Answers

Manton and Daniel react to Apple’s huge donation of face masks in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. They assess the value of leadership in a crisis, and how various people elected and otherwise can rise to fill a void. They talk about Apple’s latest iOS and Mac updates, including the debut of Universal Mac/iOS purchases, and the challenges this poses to Mac developers. Finally, they question whether Apple bit off more than they could, or maybe should, chew by promising a “fully packed” online conference for WWDC 2020.
