Tim Cook made headlines with his, “We’re capitalists” statement at the Apple Shareholders Meeting. That might seem like an obvious thing, but the term has been politicized, and can lead to wrong conclusion. The panel of Peter Cohen, Mark Fuccio, Kelly Guimont, and host Chuck Joiner take on the subject in a discussion that covers why Apple is a different kind of company, and re-defines the many labels given to business, leading by example more than by declaration.

Kelly Guimont is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly writes for The Mac Observer, is the host of the Daily Observations Podcast, is co-host of The Aftershow, makes regular appearances on the British Tech Network and yet still has more to say which she saves for Twitter and Micro.blog.
