A series of blunders leaves Apple's reputation bruised, but it doesn't seem to have had an impact on sales. We talk to Ken Segall, who worked with apple founder Steve Jobs, and ask how damaging a time it has been for the tech giant. We hear from the co-founder of PayPal, Peter Thiel, and ask why the company has ventured into the controversial world of virtual currency Bitcoin. One year on from the deadly terrorist attack on Nairobi's Westgate shopping centre, we hear how Kenya's private security industry is booming. Plus, the boss of Virgin, Sir Richard Branson, has become the latest to adopt an "unlimited vacation policy" for some of his staff. We talk to a New York firm that's been using the policy for years, and ask just how much holiday its staff now take.
