This week on the SyrupCast, Igor Bonifacic, Patrick O'Rourke, and Ted Kritsonis ring in the new year by talking about Apple's updated earnings forecast.

This week, in an updated forecast to investors, Apple predicted their Q1 earnings to be $84 billion USD. This forecast is down $9 billion from the last released numbers due to fewer iPhone upgrades than expected and weak sales in China. The SyrupCast crew discusses possible ways for Apple to bring their numbers back up.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch isn't just the latest episode of Charlie Brooker's acclaimed Black Mirror anthology series, it's also a visual novel that represents one of the most public Netflix experiments ever deployed.

The film tells the story of a young programmer who finds himself in a strange reality loop while attempting to build a choose-your-own-adventure video game based on a fictional choose-your-own-adventure novel called Bandersnatch.

This week, MobileSyrup reporter Sameer Chhabra speaks with MobileSyrup managing editor Patrick O'Rourke and staff reporter/video producer Shruti Shekar about Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

Later in the episode, Mike MacDonald, an author of the Choose Your Own Misery series of choose-your-own-adventure novels (and a former colleague of MobileSyrup's own Patrick O'Rourke), speaks about what it's like writing narratives that depend on continuous reader input.
