This Week in Tech 587: Leaving the Apple Cult


This Week in Tech (Video-HI)

Days before the US elections, we discuss the preeminence of social media, the difficulty of fact checking, and the loss of trust in the media that has occured this year. Is Apple’s recent MacBook announcement an acknowledgement that they are no longer a Macintosh company? Samsung has received 85% of its recalled Note 7 phones – now they just have to get the 2.8 million potentially explosive diswashers they just recalled. Google home is out – how does it stack up against the Amazon Echo?

  • Leo asked the question – if Apple has lost their mojo, where will the next great innovation come from?
  • Jason said Elon Musk will save the world.
  • Peter said Snapchat will revolutionize how we interract with one another.
  • Jonathan said there is a solder monkey tinkering away in a garage somewhere that will outdo them all.

Host: Leo Laporte

Guests: Peter Rojas, Jonathan Abrams, and Jason Calacanis
