Today, I try a new weekly feature on The Apple Box. Each Monday or Tuesday, I’ll have a bite-size “Best Of,” related to whatever’s coming out that week. But, unlike other in-depth rankings of mine, I will be giving no justification for the order, defence of controversial choices, or rambling description of each entry.
This list is as it is. The ten best, with zero context.
