EYE Chart Radio (tech news)

This week we have David Ginsburg on the show. We discuss Apple's annual developer conference being held in Silicon Valley next week. 

We try to steer clear of the rumor mill and discuss what we'd like to see and what is pretty certain to unfold at WWDC 2017.

We also talk about Apple's place in the world of chip makers and realize that they are a huge player even though they only supply chips for their own devices. Amazon's Alexa can now peek at your iCloud and Google calendars and the iPad you'd never think of buying.

All that and so much more. Enjoy!



A few folks have asked how they could help with the show in the form of a donation, so I have set up a Patreon account. You can check it out here. I appreciate any help that I can get very much!

EyeChart Radio - May 6, 2017

This week Ken Ray and I try to have a show based solely on Apple's Q2 2017 earning call. Amazing how some plans can just go astray.

We also end up talking about Tim Cook and Mad Money's Jim Cramer getting together, Apple's $1B in Advanced Manufacturing and what exactly is that?...and do we have to forever remain vigilant for the prospect of never having a backdoor on our devices.

Ken's perspective is as entertaining as ever! Enjoy.
