Podcast 518: Zany Bob Mansfield's Apple Car Emporium
Glenn and Susie discuss most promising Apple Car rumor yet, how the Apple Watch helped save our friend's life, how to protect yourself from ransomware, and more.
Another big traffic sign just appeared, pointing straight the Apple Car: Longtime Apple executive Bob Mansfield is reportedly now in charge of Project Titan, which is the code-name for the Apple Car. That's great news if you are eager to see this thing really happen, although the rumor does come along with a new ship estimation of 2021. Hopefully this won't be one of those things that's always five years down the road.
Elsewhere, Yahoo was sold to Verizon, and we have opinions. Lots of security stories popped up this week, and Glenn can unpack them all so you stay informed but not panicked. And the Apple Watch helped save Chuck La Tournous's life during a recent cardiac episode. Happily, he's fully recovered and wrote about his experiences for Macworld—as well as how the watch is helping him stay heart-healthy to avoid future problems. (Knock wood and eat kale.)
