Essential Apple Podcast 259: Far Out – Man‪!‬ The Essential Apple Podcast

    • Technology

This one is ridiculously (Nay, obscenely) late -– sorry all, Obviously it is now out of date but you might still enjoy our guesses of what might have been in the Far Out event and some of the other stories. I can only apologise deeply for the delay.
Anyway, that aside, Nick and Simon are back again after their summer sojourn, I know we didn’t announce it – it just sort of happened because the news was so sparse...
Putting all that behind us, we are hopefully back on the track and with the Apple circuit about to go into high gear as everyone looks forward to the Far Out event on 7th Sept and we look at a few stories from the last few weeks
