In addition to launching our new 9to5Mac Daily podcast this week, we were also invited by FOX News Radio’s FOX News Rundown podcast to discuss what Apple could do to address investor calls for stronger parental controls on iPhones and iPads.

The discussion involved the newly published “Think Different About Kids” letter backed by activist investors who want to see Apple address iPhones and iPads becoming addictive for children.
