    Fleets Are the Mullet of Twitter - Twitter's New Fleets, Loon's Financial Trouble, macOS Woes

    Fleets Are the Mullet of Twitter - Twitter's New Fleets, Loon's Financial Trouble, macOS Woes

    Apple's macOS saw some slowdowns earlier this week — what's that all about? Apple also announced plans to reduce its App Store commission from 30% to 15% for small businesses. Loon, the Alphabet company that aims to bring internet to rural areas via balloon, is facing financial struggles. Twitter introduced short, disappearing posts called Fleets that are reminiscent of Instagram and Snapchat stories.

    First, Dan Moren of Six Colors joins Jason and Mikah to talk about macOS and Gatekeeper. After some Mac users saw a slowdown on their computers earlier this week, Gatekeeper ended up being at the root of the problem. He also explains Apple's upcoming plans to reduce its App Store commission for small businesses (those that make less than $1 million in a year).

    Then, Nick Bastone of The Information stops in to detail Loon's financial woes. The Alphabet-owned company makes internet-connected balloons that aim to bring connectivity to rural areas. It's reportedly running low on funds and looking for other opportunities to keep going.

    Lastly, Insider's Palmer Haasch explains Fleets, Twitter's new Instagram-Stories-like feature. How does it compare to the other social stories options? How has Twitter handled harassment? Haasch shares her answers to these questions and more.

    How the Election Shapes Uber & Lyft - Prop 22, Tech Stocks, Amazon's Rural Delivery Plans

    The stock market is reacting to the election and we take a closer look at tech stocks. California's Proposition 22 has passed; what does that mean for app-based drivers and the rest of the country? Amazon may be planning to tackle rural deliveries by way of its "Wagon Wheel" project.

    Then, Jason and Mikah ask Alex to stick around to discuss California's Proposition 22. The proposition, which passed, affects app-based drivers and may have a bigger impact on app-based tech jobs across the country and the rest of the world.
