I would like to see the result of that experiment.

I'm fairly happy with Windows 8 and RT, haven't used a Win8 phone yet but all of ones gadgets running basically the same OS has it's advantages ... even if the OS isn't perfect.

I like the idea of the surface pro.
it should tie in with a win 8 pro laptop / desktop and a win 8 phone and be a very good experience.

i would probably run ubuntu on the intel chip microsoft surface though :|

And mostly they achieve that.
That's where they lost me. The whole obsession with thinness... The Mac Pro is the machine I lust after; thinness be damned, gimme power. Alas I can't afford one, not being one a one percenter.

Reinforces Jobs decision to appoint Cook

This series of moves underscores Steve Jobs decision to put Cook in the number one spot. Cook fully understands the strengths and weaknesses of Apple. Clearly putting Jony Ives in charge of all things creative does exactly what Jobs wanted. Cook's brilliance shines.

Maybe with Ives in this role we might see some Apple greatness once again but i think they need to pull their finger out and get on with it the competition will only get tougher.
disney company is doing just fine w/o walt.

Ive. The man is called Ive. The name is even in the title of the story this time!

Ive.

There is no 's' unless you're talking more than one of him. And perhaps one day they shall clone him, or employ someone with the same surname in a prominent public position. Until that day though, it's Ive, not 'Ives'.

Most likely, it has. Jonathan does work out, I believe. I expect, so does Schiller (he weighed a few kilos more a year or two ago).

Now that Mini-Steve is being shown the door, this is the best thing that could happen at Apple. Hopefully, Ive has his own innate demands for perfection, and it wasn't simply something that Steve was beating in to him.

This is highly encouraging.

Jony Ive will do what Steve did, better, faster, with more style and less drama.

I'd also venture a guess he's not filled with the same burning desire to destroy people and companies. He's too skilled, too experienced, and too well balanced.

Apple is now in a very good position.

I think having Jony at a more central role was already in the planning when Steve Jobs was around. I think the issue was with Jony's long term commitment. To have so much responsibilities is a big ask. They have definitely drawn some special deal to have Jony agree to it, perhaps with Forstall's oust included.

Forstall's departure was only a matter of time.

What else does your crystal ball show you?

Sorry, I probably sound like an arse, but nobody knows how Ives (I mean Ive ) will do.

Time will tell.

Btw, I think it's safe to say Cook is a genius with this move. He def belongs where he is.
