Our MacVoices Live! pane of David Ginsburg, Brittany Smith, Warren Sklar, Jim Rea, Kelly Guimont, and Mark Fuccio examine Amazon’s release of a Prime Video app. Is it for your benefit or theirs? Then the panel starts a discussion of the implications of Apple purchasing Google ads for apps in the app store. Who does it benefit? Is the practice just good business, clickbait fodder, or both? (Part 2)
