This week I am joined by Alan Vickers and Ric McCorriston as we go over the weeks Apple and tech related news. 

I finally make my Twitter feed usable again. M&F is now available in Apple News. Apples announces a date and new venue for WWDC. The iPad gets some adverts again, finally. Lawmakers decide if we can ‘Fix it’. Imagine if Apple bought Imagine and there are so many rumours floating about.
