AT Banter Episode 120 – Damien Pickering and HIMS

Steve makes a triumphant return to the podcast and – ok, we may be overselling that, but he is back. We celebrate by talking a bit about the most recent Apple Event and delve into the new capabilities of the newest version of the Apple Watch before welcoming Damien Pickering, Vice President of Sales for HIMS International to the show where he gives us a preview of their upcoming Braille device, the QBraille XL.
