The talk of the Apple community

<p>The MacVoices Live! panel of <strong>Chuck Joiner</strong>, <strong>David Ginsburg</strong>, <strong>Ben Roethig</strong>, <strong>Jeff Gamet</strong> and <strong>Web Bixby</strong> went shopping on Amazon Prime Day (who didn’t), and reveal their purchases both tech and non-tech. That led to some discussion of hardware choices past and present, and what effect participating in the annual shopping event has on data collection. This part of the discussion concludes with observations about the adoption rate of Threads. (Part 1) </p>
