Should I be selling 8K to my clients?

Lest anyone thing I am a flip-flopper, one of the things that I have done a 180 on during the past year is 8K. I started off the year a bit sceptical and did a mid-course correction a bit later on with a much more positive point of view.

Letter from America: ‘A funny thing happened…’ Notes on Apple’s September 2018 event

Those of a certain age, old enough to remember radio comedies or the early days of television programming, will recall that many of the performers were old Vaudeville stars, or comics often from “B” movies.
