This week's episode marks the end of an era. In podcasting terms, that's three or four years. It has been a ton of fun being on this show with Ken and when I took the reins at the beginning of 2017. I was very fortunate to work with a bunch of great co-hosts; Chuck Joiner, David Ginsburg, Adam Christianson, BigJD, Richard Gunther, Mark Fuccio, Barry Fulk, Kelly Guimont and Allison Sheridan. On this episode Ken Ray and I talk about the history of the show and look forward with a conversation about what we're looking forward to seeing. Most of all, I would like to thank all the folks who've been listening since the beginning as well as even one-time listeners. Please head over to my Patreon page and give a one-time payment of any amount. It'll help offset the costs of my next creative endeavor....I'd appreciate it very much. See ya soon! Au revoir, Mike

This week on the show we have Adam Christianson from the MacCast Podcast. Adam and Mike discuss Apple's increasing permits for autonomous vehicles it tests in the state of California. We also talk about Apple developing their own displays using microLED technology and the challenges that manufacturing these displays brings. Speaking of challenges, TrueDepth was a challenge for Apple to bring to market, but yet it succeeding in doing so; what advantages does this give Apple? A bug in Siri allows others to access your messages from third-party messaging apps if your notification settings are configured properly and Apple gets in hot water with Amnesty International. All that and so much more. Enjoy!
