Won’t you Listen to what the Man says?

For our thirty-third regular show, we are joined by very special guest Merlin Mann. You may know Merlin as the productivity guy behind 43 Folders, or from such podcasts as Reconcilable Differences, Back to Work, Do By Friday or You Look Nice Today. Merlin stops by to talk about his history with Macs, and he and Jake geek out on some HomeKit stuff, and in our main topic we get into a great discussion of Apple’s Tug-of-war between its long-time and newer customers and what that means going forward. Can Apple sustain its growth without selling out?
