    The opening segment on the show about the app store & the developer& the rules i think went on mutch 2 long – I’vbeen away for a while so perhaps your audience enjoyed it. But I personally would have liked just a quicq summary. Thanks for listening –

    Thanks Adam, loyal listener and love the show. Just want to comment about your problem with Western Digital external drive and random ejects happening. This has been occurring with my iMac for some time and I have become very disappointed in these drives. I have used WD for a long long time and the last two present this problem. I ignored the random eject as an annoyance. Eventually it just failed and my Mac would not even recognize it. The drive was just a year old and actually was a replacement for one that failed within a month. Fortunately, I have two externals that I use for alternate backups. My second WD also randomly ejects and will be reason to watch closely. Instead of WD, I purchased a Seagate.

    I will try your suggestion of switching the USB port for my WD. However, it looks like I will become a Seagate supporter in the future.

    T-Mobile told me that my less than ideal cell coverage at home is because my iPhone 6s cannot take advantage of the newer network technology they are using now. So they try to sell me a new phone. What I’m wondering is if buying a newer iPhone will actually improve my service or if that is just a sales tactic?
