Our MacVoices Live! discussion of the obsession with Tim Cook’s successor concludes as the panel of Jeff Gamet, Kelly Guimont, Jim Rea, Dave Ginsburg, Jay Miller, Brittany Smith, and Frank Petrie talk about who should be delivering the product introductions, and why some CEOs are "punch-able”. The panel then turn their attention to the South Korean ruling that Apple, Google, and others will be required to allow other payment options in their app stores, and why that might make other decisions in other countries easier.
