MacVoices #18067: Bryan Chaffin on Bitcoin Faucets, HomePod, and Apple’s Communications Decisions

Bryan Chaffin of The Mac Observer is back to update and enlighten us on the world of Bitcoin in general, and Bitcoin faucets in particular. You can earn Bitcoins without investing anything more than your time with this option. Bryan explains how it works, and why he is still bullish on the idea of cryptocurrencies. Then, Bryan and host Chuck Joiner compare Apple HomePod expectations and experiences, and argue over what information and options Apple should and shouldn’t be giving you.
