Welcome to Preemptive Multi-Talking, the podcast where your hosts Chris Marriott and Mike Lovell translate clickbait and FUD into objective (well, mostly), informed opinion on the latest news and trends in tech.

This week we're joined by special guest Matt Corkum, a media studies instructor at NSCC, photographer, and all-around IT guru. For this episode, we're mostly focused on Apple's new MacBook Pro that has thoroughly disappointed professional Mac users who see Apple abandoning them and their workflows. We cover this Mac's lack of horsepower, lack of ports, and Apple's fettish obsession with thinness at the expense of performance. Also up for discussion is Apple's new Touch Bar, and IBM's Watson revolutionizing medical diagnosis.
