The talk of the Apple community

Charlotte Henry of The Addition helps us make sense of Apple’s aggressive moves into live sports, especially the recent 10-year agreement with Major League Soccer. Exactly how it will play out, who will be able to watch how many matches, and whether we might see tiers or channels on Apple TV+ are all part of the conversation. Has Apple been testing the arena of live sports before making bigger leaps, or is it all part of a normal growth and expansion curve? What features are most important to viewers on either side of the pond? Charlotte offers her take on all that and more. Truebill MacVoices is supported by Truebill.

<p>The tone for our recent wide-ranging conversation with <strong>Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus </strong>was set early as Bob formally announced his retirement. Always outspoken, Bob explained why that means he will be leaving Texas, some of his plans for the coming year, and a couple of the services that will help him do it. We also spent some time looking back at Bob’s career, a few of his predictions, and how things have changed for tech journalists. We also discussed how our technology helped get us through the COVID lockdown. </p>
