The MacVoices Live! panel of Jeff Gamet, Kelly Guimont, Jim Rea, Dave Ginsburg, Jay Miller, Brittany Smith, and Frank Petrie address a report that Apple is “requiring” employees to use personal devices for company business. The panel evaluates the truth of the report (which, at recording time, was coming from only one source), why it doesn’t make sense given Apple’s privacy positions, and why is just a bad idea for anyone working for any company, Apple or not. Then, we start a discussion our obsession with Tim Cook’s replacement, whoever that is. The inevitable discussion of Tim vs. Steve Jobs as CEO rears its ugly head, along with a discussion of how the role of CEO has been redefined by Apple. (Part 1)
