MacVoices #14207: The MacJury Judges The Apple iPad, iMac, Mac mini and Yosemite Event

With Apple’s October 2014 product announcements in the books, The MacJury convened to judge not only the  hardware the software, but also the delivery of Tim Cook,  Craig Federighi and others. Display resolution, price, power, cameras and more were on the list of evidence. Find out who thought the announcements were good enough to place orders right away, what was ordered and who will be waiting…and what they’re waiting for. The panel of  Bart Busschots, Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus, Don McAllister, and host Chuck Joiner tell all.

This edition of MacVoices is supported by Eye Chart Magazine: Putting Apple and Tech News In Focus.
