December 31, 2011 — Kirk McElhearn, Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus, and Jim Dalrymple

We wrap 2011 with three fascinating guests. First, commentator Kirk McElhearn discusses a peculiar take by a book reviewer on the impact of Steve Jobs and Apple, and also discusses some of his favorite stories for the year.

Prolific author Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus muses on what might have happened to Apple had Steve Jobs not returned to the company in the mid-1990s. He also discusses the possibilities of an Apple connected TV and how such a product would deliver the content you want.

With The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple, we talk about such topics as the possible impact of the Stop Software Piracy Act and how domain registrar GoDaddy got themselves in the thick of it when they first supported the controversial proposed law, and then, in the face of customer defections, changed their tune.
