MacVoices #15073: Ted Landau Picks His Apple Watch, Identifies the MacBook Audience and Looks at USB-C

Ted Landau  has his eye on an Apple Watch, but which one? He tells us why he’s decided to be an early adopter, picks his favorite, and talks about the influence of fashion on his choice…and maybe yours. Ted also has some thoughts on the new MacBook’s audience and why there has been such a strong reaction to the USB-C choice of connectivity, and why HBO Now may finally be the break from cable we’ve all been waiting for.
