Mark is feeling under the weather again – although the weather here is decidedly pleasant for a change!
I am joined by Donny Yankellow to talk over this week’s news. Apple’s iPhone X is far from a flop, Apple had a record quarter raking in the cash hand over fist. Analysts were all way off… What Apple records about you; and whatever else we think of during the show.
