When a CEO loses $300 in stock price in a little over a year, that IS the WORST CEO IN HISTORY.
Although I know nothing about stock market I believe that stock prices get manipulated. I don't think for example that google deserves to be at 800$ and read predictions of reaching 1000$.
Also anyone becoming CEO after Jobs would get unfairly compared with him and getting rater poorly (Jobs would do this, Jobs would do other etc). Jobs was a legend and believe me I am not a fan of him.

You're joking right?

Did you actually look at the entire list?

I don't see how Ivy is influential. If making slimmer and lighter is something that WOWs people...by golly...he's amazing...because to me...ipad and computers are same thing to... I don't see any different other than faster processors.

Sorry, but J. Ive is [one of] the best, whether you "get it" or not. (IMHO)
All laptops and phones look similar; the key difference is in the materials used.

I'll give credit to Ive for designing the Macbook, iMac etc ... but I will add:

* once one was designed, it was easy for the rest to follow suit.
* These products were designed some time ago; so what has Ive done since then?
* Even then, it was only a matter of 5 or 6 products
* Its easy enough to design a great product, but most kudos should go to the engineers who actually built these machines; its easy for Jobs and Ive to sit there shouting 'it must look like this and have this and that', but they didn't do the hard work to create the finished product!
* Ive could have made the iMac better by loosing the chin ... but he didn't; and IMO the design went downhill from the white iMac.
* Same goes for the latest iPod nano ... its a kids toy
* Then we have no Powermac
* A boring Mac TV
* No design upgrade on the iPod classic
* No new monitors
* Great iPad mini's yes ... but no retina
* No optical drives!!!
* ... and finally the iPhone which style wise died as soon as they moved from the iPhone 3 design!

If you sit down and think about it; design, style and innovation died a LONG time ago at Apple!

Meanwhile, others are copying Apple ... GREAT! I'm happy about that if it gives me a better product; and as we all know, its not as if Apple didn't copy or steal ideas themselves!!!!!

Of course, and thats why Apple has been resting on its laurels for so long ... they've been taking inspiration from Ive!

Maybe I should draw a great product, get someone else to do the hard work and actually design and manufacture the thing, then take the glory for the next 20 years!!!!

Wow I guess he's conned a lot of people then. Instead of getting a promotion, Cook should have given him the boot. I mean if someone else had his job we'd actually see innovation at Apple again.

If they'd have employed me I would have made the iMac chinless (and put the SD slot back on the SIDE (not the *********g back!) and optical drive back). I would add a tv tuner and optical drive to the mini to create the best media server ever, had powermacs updated a year ago, made iWeb the software it should have been, delivered a better iPod nano instead of some kids toy and with the iPhone, curved it more (a cross between the HTC One and iPhone 3), added a 4.5" screen and micro SD. For the iPad range, again micro USB, retina on the mini at launch, created a wireless keyboard with number pad, introduced wireless charging to phones and iPads and developed the iPod classic further. That's after I'd dumped maps and invested some of all that money into reducing prices.

Can anyone let me know if the above ideas are lame, unwanted by most and why the 'Great Ive' hasn't instigated any?

I don't give a stuff about what one guy at JD Power thinks about the iPhone. I think the design is staid and boring and unadventurous; and this coupled with an outdated OS, small screen, lack of SD expansion (just greed on Apples part!) and a host of other features like wireless charging makes previously keen apple customers like myself move elsewhere. I love the S3 after holding it against my iPhone ... and I don't care if it's got a plastic back when the unit as a whole is quality and offers all thse features. In the end I went with a Lumia 820. It's heavy yes but it's a 10/10 quality unit with a host of fantastic features which pour scorn on my old iPhone .... Moving away (until apple can do better) was the best move I ever made; and I laugh as even iPhone 5 users at work look at my mobile, then theirs and say 'I wish I didn't buy this phone'.

"Lol at how Samsung's CEO's article is written by the worst Apple CEO in the history of the company. "

I am sure most of us would vote Gil Amelio as the worst. Mr. Clone almost killed Apple. After the disastrous clone program, he is best known for this quote:
"Apple is like a ship. That ship is loaded with treasure, but there's a hole in the ship. And my job is to get everyone to row in the same direction."

The only thing good that happened at Apple during Amelio's tenure was bringing Steve Jobs back. Jobs' first order of business: Get rid of Amelio.

What about the original iMac, I think that was his premiere product that set things in motion.
