  • Tim Cook Confirms New Mac Desktops Coming
  • Michigan Playing Defense Against Silicon Valley
  • The AirPods Launch

We begin today's email with Tim Cook reassuring the world that Apple hasn't turned its back on Mac desktops. We discuss Apple's current Mac desktop strategy and where changes are likely to be found in the future. The email then turns to Michigan becoming the leading state in the U.S. in terms of autonomous driving regulations. However, there is a major catch with the rules, with a direct impact on Apple and other technology companies. Michigan appears to be playing defense against new auto players. The email concludes with my thoughts and observations on this week's AirPods launch, including demand/supply and Apple Retail implications.
