In an unexpected plot twist, co-hosts William Gallagher and Malcolm Owen this week agree on something. They've still got very different opinions on games, PCs and, this time, also hammers for some reason. Yet there is a moment of humanity that's only taken 37 episodes to appear. It's about a keyboard.

Previously on this week by week slicing of Apple history, we noted how Steve Wozniak had been dangerously tardy in 1976 about getting a legal release from his employer Hewlett Packard. Without that permission, the Apple I computer would've legally belonged to HP, and by the time Woz got the paperwork sorted out, he and Jobs were already deep into making their first sale. We were sorry to have teased you with how you'd have to wait until this week to see that Woz learned his lesson a little too well. Now we're very sorry to tease you that he would do something even more daft -- that we'll tell you about in November.
File this under "we spent an hour on it, so you don't have to." This Pointers is for when your Apple Magic Trackpad 2 appears fine, but won't click. It's a bit more urgent than that sounds, too: we don't mean you can't use Force Touch, we mean you can't click on something to drag it anywhere. It's not going to be a long Pointers but we've got the answer you want; then, just to cover all the bases, the answer that you're afraid it will be, and then the big mistake we made that you won't have to.

GoPro revenue drops, Karma drone delayed
Action camera maker GoPro announced its first quarter results on Thursday, and the news was largely bad. While unit sell-through of the cameras was close to the year-over-year compare, revenues dropped 49.5 percent from Q1 last year, though was slightly above the company's guidance. Overall, the company lost $107 million in GAAP net income, and margins declined to 32.5 percent from 45.1 percent in the year-ago quarter. The company further announced that it would be delaying its planned Karma drone product until this winter, which will likely further impact next quarter's results. The upside of the delay, said GoPro Founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman, is that the Karma will now benefit from debuting just before the holiday buying season. http://bit.ly/1OgpdgD
Netflix iOS app now offers cell-data controls
In a new update to its iOS app on Thursday, subscription entertainment service Netflix has introduced new user controls for streaming over cellular networks to prevent overages, throttling, or other usage issues caused by the high data rate of streamed HD video. Users can choose from a given amount of streaming video that "costs" 1GB of cellular data, which lowers video quality to allow as much as four hours of video per GB (the "automatic" setting provides three hours, while higher quality settings reduce the time to two hours, or one hour at the best setting). In addition, the updated app now offers more 3D Touch options from the app icon, beyond the "peek and pop" previews for video. http://apple.co/24AD1vR

Lunch with Cook auction nets $515K
The Charitybuzz auction that offered lunch with Apple CEO Tim Cook at Apple HQ and a pair of passes to a future Apple event (winner's pick) has ended with a high bid of $515,000, the highest amount the annual auction has fetched since 2013. Proceeds of the auction will benefit Cook's preferred charity, the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organization, where Cook was recently named to the board of directors. The winner, who was unnamed, will be responsible for their own transportation and accommodation, and Cook has up to a year to schedule the meeting -- making it possible that the winner will be among the first to dine with Cook in the new Campus 2 cafeteria, which is set to open along with the rest of the new facility early next year. http://bit.ly/236Wf9N

US tech giants to candidates: support TPP
Tech giants including Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Uber are among thirteen major US corporations who have written an open letter to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton urging them to support the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal, reports Reuters. Although not yet made public, the letter also asks the candidates to make it easier for the companies to hire tech workers from overseas. Both are not happy with the TPP deal, although Trump is sterner in his opposition to any kind of trade deals between countries. Trump has not rejected outright the idea of importing high-tech talent from overseas, while Clinton has already voiced her support for the idea. http://reut.rs/1Wb0Zwq
