Bit of a different tact this week as Alan Vickers joins Karl Madden to discuss the week's Apple related news. However, they are soon diverted to the current state of Apple reporting and their suspicion of the growing trend to focus more on opinion pieces rather than actual news...of which they naturally share their opinion.
