Podcast 558: Apple’s billion-dollar move

Apple has billions and billions of dollars, and a massive
supply chain that’s mostly overseas. The day after the latest
earnings call, CEO Tim Cook told CNBC’s Jim Cramer that Apple
is launching an advanced manufacturing fund, and seeing it with
$1 billion. The fund’s first investment should be announced
soon, but Glenn and Susie are excited about the idea already.

Elsewhere, Amazon Prime Video might come to the Apple TV. Hulu
Live is pretty promising already. And Twitter’s getting into
the video game too, just without any NFL games this coming
season.
