Podcast 515: Facebook cuts Paper, its only good app
Susie and Caitlin have a lot of feelings about the loss of Paper, which is like rocks and scissors to our souls.
For the middle of summer, so much is going on! Glenn and Susie (just back from vacation) are joined by staff writer Caitlin McGarry to discuss the death of our favorite Facebook app ever, Facebook Paper. And then while we're at it, we chat about what Spotify's problem is and why Apple absolutely should buy Tidal.
In security news, the iCloud hacker plead guilty, making us wonder about the proper penalties for phishing. Apple's Gatekeeper is causing headaches again. And Glenn explains why just putting tape over your MacBook's microphone isn't going to do anything.
