Podcast 491: Make A-Mac-ica great again
We discuss the technology in politics, with Donald Trump's plan for force Apple to make its hardware in the U.S., and the New York Senate's back-door demand. Plus VLC, Netflix, and more.
With Susie on assignment in Florida, Leah Yamshon (Macworld’s associate managing editor) joins Glenn Fleishman to discuss Donald Trump’s fiat economy plan to make Apple produce its hardware in America, the New York Senate’s desire to criminalize a lack of back doors in smartphones, and the return (or continued existence) of Gatekeeper exploits.
Leah and Glenn also talk about VLC, a universal format player, for Apple TV; their continued irritation at some Apple TV features; and Netflix’s plan to block more subscribers outside the U.S. who aren’t using their new 190-nation plan.
We also decided on a future episode topic. Keep your ideas coming, too!
Netflix to more aggressively block proxies and other connections to enforce content licenses.
