MacVoices #16199: The MacJury on Discontinued Airports, Pro Support, and Missing Information

The MacJury convened a special session to contemplate the long-term implications of several happenings within Apple in the last week or so. Topics of discussion included the report that Apple will discontinue the Airport series of wireless routers, the elimination of Sal Soghoian’s position, pro hardware and software support and the impact of Apple’s secrecy on their public perception. The panel includes Jeff Gamet, Mark Fuccio and host Chuck Joiner.
