MacJury #1206: The MacJury Discusses The Apple Stock Dividend, Stock Buy Back, Apple TV and More


The MacJury convenes to provide some balanced perspective on Apple’s announcement of a stock dividend and buy back plan…and fails. The discussion starts there, then migrated to who gets credit for Apple’s recent successes, Apple’s offshore cash horde, the Apple TV, the entertainment industry, and more. Providing the less-than fair and balanced commentary are Peter Cohen, Steve Sande, and host Chuck Joiner.
