Last week, I forgot to write a Vergecast post for the site.
Also last week, The Verge all got together to see what part of capitalism Apple can disrupt next. As you may have guessed from reading the site in the past week, it was credit cards, television, and news.
Our faithful tech luminaries and hosts of The Vergecast Nilay Patel, Dieter Bohn, and Paul Miller brought in resident home television expert Chris Welch to the show to analyze these Apple announcements and what they mean for the future of streaming, credit, and how people get their news.
And of course, Paul brings back his reoccurring segment, “Invisible to visible”. So if you haven’t already listened to last week’s episode of The Vergecast, here’s a friendly reminder!
