Maccast Members 190 – What is Success?

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Podcast

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 190. This week I wanted to talk about the discussions that have cropped up surrounding measuring the success of the Apple Watch, and by proxy Apple. Some recent data from Slice seemed to indicate slowing Apple Watch sales and that one story lead to a lot of analysis and inevitably to a bunch of “Apple is doomed” stories. I wanted to step back and take a bigger look at how we might measure success as it relates to Apple in a bit better way.
