The CultCast

In the 12 years advertising executive Ken Segall worked closely with Steve Jobs, he named the iMac, and also helped develop Apple's famous Think Different ad campaign.  

Ken has a new book out, titled, Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple's Success.  And in this episode of The CultCast, Ken regales us with stories about what it was really like working with Steve Jobs, and what makes Apple so different from every other company on earth.

Why yes, we did just release episode 4 of The CultCast two days ago, but this is a special New-iPad hands-on edition!  They're here, we have them, and in this special episode, we tell you what we think of them.

We also decided to include an impromptu preshow discussion on the Agony and Ecstasy Of Steve Jobs, the monologue that's been getting press lately for allegedly being partly fabricated.  It's done so much good in the world, does it matter if it's not 100% true?
