Last Friday Michael and Alex did a precursor to iPhone 7 launch discussion. Of course we’re now posting it after the event, so it may be interesting to hear what stuff actually came true.

Michael talks to Alex about what a future would look like with an Apple Car subscription service. Tap to subscribe and get a ride anywhere you need, via autonomous Apple Car. Also, will the government ever step in and demand that we, as a society, must abolish human piloted vehicles?
Special guest, K.
