Just getting in from a little R&R (HUGE shout out to my boss Jeb on making that happen!) and of course anxious to get the lowdown on apples UNBELIEVABLY mysterious new product, which up until about 25 minutes ago I believed was actually going to the one piece of technology that I have been praying daily for since 1989...a hoverboard.
No hoverboard announcements this week dudes, only announcements about a product that 20 years from now VH1's "I love… Continue
