That time we talked about Apple, Kanye West and slavery
This week is Apple's big developer conference, creatively called Worldwide Developers Conference (or WWDC), and TechCrunch was there. Each year the company showcases the things developers will be able to do in upcoming versions of their various operating systems (iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS). While there were a bunch of features that didn't really elicit much excitement from either of us, there was one in particular that we are quite looking forward to: Memoji. We talk about it all and what messaging means out there in that big bad world of ours.
Next up was Kanye West. This week he announced that his latest album, ye, wouldn't be available exclusively on Tidal like his 2016 release Pablo had been. And these days you can't have a conversation about the rapper without discussing his recent comments about American slavery having been a choice. So we got into that.
