MacVoices #13189: The MacJury Examines The Larger Issues Surrounding Apple’s Announcements

As the dust cleared from Apple’s October 22 event featuring the iPad Air, updates to the MacBook Pro and more, The MacJury convened to look at some of the larger issues surrounding those announcements. The effects of a fee-free Mavericks on adoption and software valuation, contrasting iPad and Microsoft Surface announcements, and the reaction to the Mac Pro’s price are where the discussion started. Who’s buying what, the implications of the iPad Air’s name and  whether updating almost the entire Apple product line is a good thing are all part of the conversation with Mark Fuccio, Jeff Gamet, Ted Landau  and host Chuck Joiner.
