The tech world is going crazy over the first announcements of foldable phones…but should it? The panel of Mark Fuccio, Andrew Orr, Brett Terpstra, and host Chuck Joiner discuss and debate the potential designs of a foldable phone, the challenges it would present for developers, and why augmented reality might be a better alternative. Should Apple get into the game, or is this just another tech red herring? How does this fit into the Apple hardware and software ecosystems? Find out in this speculative discussion.
