Part 2 of our MacVoices Live! panel of David Ginsburg, Kelly Guimont, Brittany Smith, Andrew Orr, Frank Petrie, Guy Serle, and Mark Fuccio continued their discussion of past and present macOS/chip transitions, then shift to Apple’s decision to reduce their commission on app store developers from 30% to 15% for developers earning less than $1 million per year. The issue is more complex than you might think. (Part 2 of 2)

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, and yet still has more to say which she saves for Twitter and Micro.blog.
Brittany Smith is a cognitive neuroscientist who provides a variety of consulting services through her business, Devise and Conquer that includes ADD/ADHD coaching, technology coaching, productivity consulting, and more. She is a self-designated “well-rounded geek”, and holds a M.S. degree in Cognitive Neuroscience. She can be found on Twitter as @addliberator.

Andrew Orr is a freelance writer and amateur photographer. He loves Apple products and enjoys writing and sharing all things tech. When he’s not writing about Apple, you can often find him snapping photos with his iPhone. Read what he writes at The Mac Observer, and follow him on Twitter.
Guy Serle, best known for being one of the co-hosts of the MyMac Podcast, sincerely apologizes for anything he has done or caused to have happened while in possession of dangerous podcasting equipment. He should know better but being a blonde from Florida means he’s probably incapable of understanding the damage he has wrought. Guy is also the author of the novel, The Maltese Cube. You can follow his exploits on Twitter, catch him on Mac to the Future on Facebook, and find everything at VertShark.com.
