Craig asks on Twitter: Firstly love the new format of the show, secondly just a quick question/observation. I’m U.K. based & am deep into the Apple ecosystem but we consistently pay substantially more for our products & don’t get everything that USA gets. No Apple Card. No cycle routes, no News Stories. A HomePod mini costs you $99 & that’s equivalent to £70 yet we pay £99, why is this?  We get reduced service & pay more for the privilege, is the world subsidising American Apple users? £99 is $139 😳😳😳. That’s just one product, it’s like that on every Apple device.

Diogo asks on Twitter: Hi guys! Question: after rebranding, are you thinking about doing more different things on the podcast, such as broadcasting live using Clubhouse or Twitter Spaces? Or that is all for changes? Peace
