Donovan and Sam are back for the first show in 2018! First on the agenda is design flaws — but not what you think (not at first) as this is a little something that Apple forgot about when they designed and built their store in Chicago.

Donovan does his best to explain what all this means in simple terms, but all the credit goes to the various articles that he drew from (and his son Tyler).
