Starbucks is one of the best companies to work for in the food industry. The benefits are good and the employees are generally happy—you guys also have a really relaxed dress code which can't be said for other companies on this list. I would rank your CEO pretty highly.

Very curious.
That 67% includes treasury stocks and stocks owned by employees/former employees. IE- Jobs' family and Cook.

Man ..I feel like Apple's gonna slowly tank without Job's brilliance. The company was like the precious baby spawn of a narcissistically brilliant megalomaniac. Without Him at the helm, Apple is just a husk of abused meat suffering from PTSD. Perhaps Cook is fatherly and patient enough to regrow Job's abandoned love-child, but who knows?

I think the market seems to think Apple is going to revolutionize the world every year or something. The iPad is just an outgrowth of the iPhone and the iPhone took Apple over half a decade to come out with after Steve Jobs took back over Apple so even when Mr. Creative himself was at the helm, these things didn't happen overnight. It just seemed that way AFTER the world took notice of Apple again. They act like Steve did it overnight or something. I think the market just over inflated Apple's stock and now they're disappointed that it's returning to a more reasonable number. OTOH, this is why I've always said Apple should not abandon their core Mac environment or delay it technologically just to work on the iPhone. You need a broad base of products to stay viable in the long run, not just depending on ONE thing (look at how RIM, now Blackberry turned upside so quickly by thinking it could just slide in that sector forever).

It's not so much the speed of revolutionizing the world that I'm talking about. I'm commenting more on Job's hyper-linear business model which doesn't branch out in terms of /talent/ and /visionaries/ ..he pretty much strong-armed the whole business, leaving it to rust away after his passing. Really short-sighted and selfish, in my opinion. He needs more teamwork, more collaboration, give employees more freedom to run off and do their own little projects instead of just boxing them in like iPhone's UI. iPhone's streamlined UI is great, but as a company structure in an ever-changing tech field? Not so much. (Don't make me mention all the ways Google expands its business through multi-visionary-expansion)

Anywho, I just think Jobs was a brilliant, but incredibly selfish man (and he didn't even know it because he was too busy basking in his own greatness and vision). His mistreatment of Steve Wozniak is evidence enough of this.
