The Critical Path is a talk show contemplating the causality of success and failure in the evolving story of mobile computing and related industries. Using Apple as a lens to look at existing and emerging tech markets, we try to understand what it means to be great. Hosted by Horace Dediu, Anders Brownworth, and Judd Rubin.
The conversation begins with Horace and Judd discussing Wolfgang Schivelbusch's The Railway Journey, then expands to include sea faring, the trouble with boilers and one of Horace's historical fantasies.
Horace handles a few of the curve balls included in the latest AAPL earnings report, answers some #CriticalQuestions and dips a toe into the ocean of possibilities regarding Apple's ventures into Health Care.
Horace wonders whether or not Ghandi and Mao would use the same iPhone, shares what he'd like to hear in the upcoming AAPL earnings call and, finally, reveals which Ikea serves the best meatballs in the entire world.
Horace shares his thoughts about how Apple may contribute to the transportation and health care sectors in the years to come, and catches up on some 1990s television in 2019's first episode of The Critical Path.
