MacVoices #17216: The MacJury’s Discussions of Apple As A Financial Services Company

In the first of a two-part discussion, the MacJury looks at two different types of companies Apple is in the process of becoming. This time, the panel of Mark Fuccio, Ken Ray, and Chuck Joiner go in-depth on what Apple brings to the financial services table through Apple Pay, as well as person-to-person payments. Are they really better than the competition? Why hasn’t Apple gone farther? Should they, and how fast should they? Why do we trust Apple, and hate our banks? All this and more, and the MacJury doesn’t always agree on this one.
