Did Yahoo ever have a chance?

On this week’s episode of MashTalk, Lance, Pete and I discuss everything happening in the world of tech. 

After a brief update on Pokémon Go tactics (1:02), we discuss Apple (3:30) and its latest earnings. The company made less money than it did last year, but it still managed to sell its billionth iPhone, which is pretty incredible. 

There is some discussion about whether or not we will see new Macs from Apple in September (14:30). Lance thinks not, but Pete and I are more optimistic. 

The Apple talk dovetails into a long discussion about Yahoo’s sale to Verizon (20:30). We spend some time discussing the last four years under Marissa Mayer and discuss whether this conclusion was really just an inevitability. 

After Yahoo, the discussion turns to a company that tried to buy it eight years ago, Microsoft. Microsoft has a new iOS camera app this week, Microsoft Pix (37:00). Lance talks about the app. It seems really cool, but does the world really need another camera app? 

Speaking of stuff the world needs, Lance tries to convince Pete and Christina why Dyson’s $1,000 360 Eye robot vacuum is something worth buying.
