Facebook and Apple's hits and misses: Girt by CNET podcast 108

This week the team takes a look at Facebook's approach to "violent video" and what Apple's dip in sales means for the iPhone (not much).

The iPhone saw its second ever dip in sales last fiscal quarter. Before you start shredding your clothes and wailing in the streets, don't worry. Profits still grew, thanks to the iPhone 7 Plus. We take a look at what that means for the iPhone, and what we can expect later this year for the 10-year anniversary.

And because it wouldn't be a Girt by CNET show without a few tangents, here's a tutorial on bokeh which we promise is relevant.

Apple wasn't the only company to post an earnings report, and the most interesting takeaway from Facebook's investor call was an expansion of the team that monitors the site for violent or offensive content. We break down what that team does and how it might mean social media is changing.

The team rounds things out with a quick game of tech hypotheticals, and realise how crushingly dependent we are on just four companies. Yes, even Amazon.
