Recorded 6th January 2019
This week it was ALL about the DISASTER of Apple announcing a likely Year on Year revenue decline… CES is coming and no doubt it will be full of “smart” things! But far more importantly we are joined by Paul Kafasis of Rogue Amoeba to talk about the new Loopback 2, and lots of other audio related things… and as ever some off script stuff too.
