Dean NortonDean Norton is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Macprofessionals, one of only two Apple Authorized Service Providers in the state of Michigan.  Founded by Lisa Glush in 2000, the company has stores in Bay Harbor (Petoskey area), Novi and now in Farmington Hills.

Macprofessionals works with companies and school districts on their Apple devices through their Novi offices. The new Farmington Hills store has a friendly consumer store atmosphere at 30907 Orchard Lake Road near 14 Mile Rd. (Can you get a cup of great coffee at the Apple Stores???)

The second hour involved all the staff and Dean Norton of Macprofessionals debating the recent demand by the FBI that Apple crack the security on an iPhone 5C that was used by one of the San Bernadino terrorists.  The public debate seems to range around the threat to public privacy under government pressure and the need of the government to find and stop terrorist activity in this particular instance. Where do you stand?
