PSP 167 — One ring to rule them all

Ronnie and Scott think rings are silly unless they’re on your finger or in grandiose movies with elves and hobbits. Apple TV is both amazingly good, and stunningly bad. Also, does only praising Apple help or hurt us as consumers?

Ronnie, Vic, and Scott are all about the round, chunky HomePod conversation. Also, Apple falls on the family by failing to love all of them equally. It hurts.
