Hosting Noah Doyle (@noahventure) “In The Studio”

Before the whole Apple Maps fiasco, I was lucky to have Noah Doyle from Javelin (where I eventually worked) in the studio with me. Noah is a pretty special founder and investor. Earlier in his career, he founded a company which went public and then was bought by UAL. And, as he was angel investing, he stumbled upon the team at Keyhole, invested, and eventually joined as an executive as well. That turned out to be a good decision. Keyhole was acquired by Google and became “Maps.” Noah knows maps! In this discussion, he explains how Apple and Google paired up for the iPhone launch, but how, over time, Apple will need to detangle itself from Google’s Maps APIs.
