 Dalrymple is of course well connected to high level Apple folks to be so accurate over the years.He basically said 'nope' to the rumor that Carney 'was being "bandied about" as Apple's new PR chief'. Hence, not the Katie Cotton replacement. But if Bloomberg and Re/code insist that Carney did speak with Apple, then it's not unreasonable to infer that he's talking about other roles. Based on his expertise and the current challenges we know Apple face, the government team...
 Because of all the articles about repeated Government failure*s* to recognize Apple's contribution and position ? They clearly need help understanding Apple better. Apple should be proactive about it.It's not just Apple. That NSA fiasco hurt all American companies big time. I personally know of many overseas deals in assorted US companies getting stuck or rejected because of it. The press, whether it's Bloomberg or Re/code, generally don't understand Apple fully. I...
 And why would you ? Tim Cook doesn't report to you or anyone on this forum after all.
 They are separate but related. The Bloomberg and Re/code rumors may have gotten the roles mixed up. 
She may need help to tackle this on a worldwide scale.  Most large companies have a separate government and policy team (different from PR). After the stupid NSA fiasco, these teams have been busy trying to explain to foreign government that they don't work with NSA. That's another item on the dude's job description.A lobbyist don't generally have experiences dealing with these global issues.
 EC Commission, FCC and the Chinese government generally downplay or fail/refuse to recognize Apple's contribution and commitment in industrywide goals. EC Commission ignored "Ask to Buy" destined for iOS8. FCC slammed Apple *after* it has already sorted out the in-app purchase issues on its own. And the Chinese state media on various occasions accused Apple of non-existing issues. Someone like Carney would understand how these people work better. It may not be a bad idea...
Can he perform other government facing role in Apple ?   They can choose someone else for the PR Chief.
The terms don't matter to us.Google Maps was gimped on iOS intentionally. As the platform owner, Apple will have to provide an alternative that fits its own vision. Whether Google agrees or not is not so relevant.
As I recall, Google held back turn by turn navigation on iOS. It is only natural that Apple decided to roll their own if vendors don't want to play ball.Google gave in later but it is great that Apple continue its map platform. Their goals are different, and their solution may diverge too.
They won 't be able to do this of course. It would fly against their historic stance on privacy protection, and future health-related efforts.
