According to this story from a former executive with Apple. Really interesting read but I wonder how true it is. I don't think Apple will lose its innovation!!

I'm skeptical about this.

I think as long as they have Jony Ive in there with his designs they will be fine.

What the **** does a director who worked at Apple over a decade ago know about what's going on there now?

Hey, you should wait on your criticism until we're sure Jordan doesn't post this on the front page. :p


As for Mr. Sirkin, he seems to have a problem holding a job. :D

Must have been his work on the Pippin that catapulted him on this skyrocketing career

Doesn't this say it all?

"Sirkin was with Apple for more than seven years in the nineties, having led a team within the companyís Macintosh unit. The executive managed the group responsible for creating FireWire technology as well as the Pippin, a low-cost computer designed to extend the Macís reach."

Wasn't the Pippin one of the biggest tech flops of all time?
