A new MacJury convened to dig deep into the motivations behind and impact of some of Apple’s newest offerings, including the 5K iMac, the iPad Air 2 and Apple Pay. Find out why the 5K iMac is inspiring both lust and jealousy. Why the iPad Air 2 excites some and is seen as incremental by others. Why Apple Pay is all but a sure thing while will succeed where Google Wallet is a much less likely bet. All that, business decisions, Tim Cook’s Apple, and more are considered by the panel of Josh Centers, Nat Osten, Michael T. Rose and host Chuck Joiner.
This edition of MacVoices is supported by Eye Chart Magaine: Putting Apple and Tech News In Focus.
