MacVoices #15061: Bryan Chaffin on Apple’s Auto Ambitions & Microsoft’s iOS Acquisitions

Bryan Chaffin  walks us down the path to believing that Apple may be working on a car, argues the evidence that Apple continues to innovate at all every turn, and why what we know about the Apple Watch reinforces that position. Bryan also has some harsh words for the less-than-informed Apple critics, and discusses the recent iOS application acquisitions that Microsoft has made, security perceptions vs reality, and more.
