When Steve Jobs said he'd solved television, it probably wasn't Apple TV+ he was thinking of. Yet this is the Apple of today, creating great dramas — and with the new Emergency SOS, preventing them too. All this, on this week's AppleInsider Podcast.
William Gallagher and Wesley Hilliard go in deep with Emergency SOS via satellite on the new AppleInsider podcast. Then they dive still deeper with MLS football — which apparently we must all call "soccer."
And then it's time to go really in depth with Apple TV+. It's become such a good service, and yet it's clearly not what Steve Jobs planned when he said he'd solved the problem of television.
There's no question, though, that he would surely applaud the new Emergency SOS via satellite that Apple launched this week for the US and Canada.
Yet, seriously, Apple is missing a trick here. Apple TV+ has no "ER," no "Grey's Anatomy," and no "St. Elsewhere." But Apple does now have Emergency SOS and surely there's a TV series in that.
