MacVoices #19185: Bryan Chaffin on A Post-Ive, Post-Ahrendts Apple, and Facebook’s Cryptocurrency

Bryan Chaffin is back to provide his thoughts on the evolution of Apple that is represented by the departures of Jony Ive and Angela Ahrendts. Will design now take a back seat in the production process? How will the retail and service experiences change in the Apple Store? Bryan holds forth on those questions, then turns his attention to Facebook’s plan to get into the cryptocurrency game. The implications for both users of such a service, and for Facebook itself, are far-reaching; Bryan explains why.
