#1609: Apple Q2 2022 results, Apple’s Self Service Repair program launches, escaping the cloud with a Synology NAS

Apple posted strong results in its second fiscal quarter of 2022 despite supply chain problems, a flagging economy, and tumult from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Apple has also launched its promised Self Service Repair program, offering parts and tools to repair recent iPhones, albeit through what looks like a generic outsourcing partner. Finally, Josh Centers discusses his month of using a Synology NAS to become less reliant on cloud services. Notable Mac app releases this week include ChronoSync 10.1 and ChronoAgent 2.1, Logic Pro 10.7.4, Little Snitch 5.4, and Quicken 6.7.
