MacVoices #15153: Jeff Carlson Talks Apple Watch and His Take Control Crash Course

Jeff Carlson  gave us an early look at Apple Watch some time ago when we talked about the first edition of his  Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course. With the second edition released after actually having the time to use and evaluate the device, Jeff is back to share his observations on how it can benefit the user, the role of expectations in the Apple Watch experience, and why he discounts all those “declining Apple Watch sales” linkbait stories. Whether you already own an Apple Watch or are just considering getting one, you need to hear what Jeff has to say.
