We have Dr Computer (Alex Neuman) back this morning the day after the launch of the new Iphone 7. General consensus is don’t expect anything new, another catch up release from Apple. Also a lot of derision in the international press with regards to the Apple statement that it took “courage” to eliminate the 3.5mm headphone jack. Courage, we don’t think so just another way of Apple getting you to cough up some more hard earned cash.
