AppleInsider editors Victor Marks and Mike Wuerthele discuss:

  • Apple Watch saves the life of a man with a ruptured ulcer - Victor wonders how many of the people with stories like this would otherwise have died, unheard of.
  • Apple, and other companies in the Valley, form a group to respond to the FBI / DOJ's push for backdoors
  • Rumor has it that Apple is buying Conde Nast. Mike is uncertain, but Victor sees this in the broader context of combating unverified news.
  • Earnings. Mike contends that it means very little to anyone outside of Wall Street. Victor is less certain: tons of people own shares in Apple, and own shares via funds even if they don't own shares directly.
