MacVoices #22249: Adam Engst at the Diablo Valley Mac User Group (1)

Adam Engst and Chuck Joiner paid a virtual visit to the Diablo Valley Mac User Group, and the discussion was wide-ranging from start to finish. We started off talking about some changes at TidBITS, the challenges of covering Apple news and how it has changed through the years. Next, Adam discusses why his visit to an Apple Store after a 3-year gap altered his impressions of some of Apple’s products, including iMacs, Apple Watches, iPads, and iPad accessories. (Part 1)
