Apple launched a new Safari Extensions section on the Mac App Store this week. Currently there are 27 Safari Extensions on the MAS, a mix of free and for-fee Extensions. The original Safari Extensions Gallery website is still available, too, though, where you can find every Extension available. There wasn’t a lot of information released with the Mac App Store addition, and we don’t yet know if Apple plans to move all of them. Safari Extensions add hooks into apps, services, and other features into Apple’s Safari browser. Many are free—especially app companions—while others come with a (small) price tag.

Mark Gurman is the Consumer Technology Reporter for Bloomberg. As Mark recalls, there was never a time in his youth when he wasn’t interested in technology. He told me that it was the iPod mini for his 10th birthday that wowed him. His love for the company that created the iPod made it feel very natural to get into reporting on Apple. In the second segment, we chatted about his seminal article in December 2016 on the state of the Mac, thoughts on the next Mac Pro, competition from Microsoft in the form of the Surface Laptop, how the Apple watch Series 3 may have LTE, how devious Apple has become in hiding its pre-release trademarks, prospects for an Apple robot and Apple’s HomePod. Mark provided, as always, fascinating and insightful comments about Apple.
