Deconstruct 64: Tales as Fun as a Dentist Visit

with Patrice Brendamour, Ben Roethig, Jerome Koehler

On the latest episode of Deconstruct, Ben and Patrice hold down the ship. Oh yeah, Jerry is surprisingly here too.

In our first story (or is it an ad?) from ZDnet, they berate Apple for not buying Harman as Samsung did. We go into the reasons it was a great decision for Samsung to grab Harman’s portfolio of audio brands, but may not have been a good fit for Apple. In our second and last article, Barron’s Next has the “scoop” on Apple’s answer to Google Glass and how the non-existent product will effect its stock prices. We argue you that you maybe shouldn’t mix your investing advice and rumors.

Deconstruct 63: We’re Deconstruct Biotch!

with Patrice Brendamour, Ben Roethig, Jerome Koehler

First Thomas Carter from the Huffington Post’s UK branch shuts down the people saying the new Touchbar MacBook Pros aren’t pro enough using actual real world examples. In our last story, The Wolfmann from classic movies howls a shitty article for Yahoo Finance about the Ear Pods. He claims Apple is dooooooomed because they were delayed and not end user repairable. We counter with the realities of modern electronics construction.
