    As always, very interesting. Great job Victor and Daniel. While other podcasts are selling mattresses, blah, blah...

    Good to know Daniel's very positive thoughts on the AirPods.

    I should be getting mine next week.

    When I saw them introduced and the intro video, I thought the very same thing. This is a quintessential Apple product that any other tech company, e.g., MS, Google, Dell, HP, etc., etc.,  is incapable of imagining, never mind implementing.

    When Daniel compared them to the original iPhone and iPad as far wow factor, I was very pleased.

    I especially liked the comment that Apple... "has invested so much time and resources in every aspect of their hardware/software offerings that essentially they have no competition." I agree. 

    Also, Daniel don't let the bastards drag you down, i.e., Samsung, bloggers and pundits touting how bad Apple is and how good Google/Android/Samsung are. My boss hates all things Apple, has an Samsung/Android phone. I tell him, he and the Taliban are the only ones i know of still using Android on their phones!

    Go for a run!


    Happy New Year, guys!
