Upgrade 214: Nobody Seems to Know Anything

Released Tuesday, 9th October 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
What is going on with Businessweek's report that servers (including Apple's) got hacked by China? Apple, Amazon, and U.S. and UK agencies flat-out say it didn't happen. Jason uses his decades of experience in journalism to make some guesses about what might be going on. We also tackle a 9to5 Mac report with more exciting details about new iPad Pro models, which may come with their own special ticket to Dongletown. And in Upstream news, everyone's looking for the next Game of Thrones, which is really good news if you're the author of a series of fantasy novels.
