As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Walter Isaacson on Apple: "What Apple has to do is always be more creative"

On Monday, Piers Morgan welcomed former CNN Chairman and CEO Walter Isaacson, inviting the Steve Jobs biographer to preview Apple's upcoming Tuesday announcements.

With his guest having penned the book "Steve Jobs" after more than 40 interviews with the Apple boss, Morgan wondered if the heartbeat of the business died with it's visionary:

"I think it's a concern we might have," Isaacson said. "Steve was a spark, a creative spark, and innovative genius. And as you said, the soul of the company."

For years, a mock turtleneck-clad Jobs released products few had even imagined. However, since his passing, Apple's philosophy's have been modified:

"I think what we're looking for is not just can we make the iPhone 5 a little bit better. Do we make another one a little bit cheaper," asked Isaacson. "But can we do something totally different or Steve would have said, think different."

Continuing with his point, the "Piers Morgan Live" guest stressed the importance of keeping with Jobs' vision:

"What Apple has to do is always be more creative. There are many places they could go ... I'm just hoping that they will think like Steve, which means think different."

  • Wolfowitz and Lieberman on the U.S. in Syria

As the crisis in Syria continues, on Monday guest Paul Wolfowitz and Joseph Lieberman joined Piers Morgan from Washington, D.C., with each man discussing the real issues facing the president and congress as they decide whether or not to deploy military action in the Middle East.

"People are concerned not because of the intelligence so much as I think they're concerned about the possibility of American casualties," said Wolfowitz, a former deputy secretary of defense. "There is an eerie similarity in one respect, not to Iraq in 2003 but in 1991, there were reports that Saddam [Hussein] was dropping chemical weapons on the Shiites. The reports were not confirmed until 12 years later, but we learned yes in fact they had ordered the use of chemical weapons against the Shiites."

Former Senator Lieberman, meanwhile, emphasized the need for America to help the world remain consistent with its stance against global wrongdoers:

"The real issue here is whether or not the Congress is going to stand up for international norms with respect to dictators that have only been broken twice until [Bashar al-]Assad. [Adolf] Hitler and Hussein," he explained. "If we turn away from it, our allies are going to be shaking. The enemies will be bolder. And inevitably, we'll be drawn into a larger conflict that will cost us more lives and treasure. That is what happens when you don't stop a bully, a thug, when he murders his own people, particularly."
