I see this as a distraction away from Apple for him. Apple users will suffer by his hobby taking time and mind.

That's funny there was a VERY similar story to this in the Steve Jobs bio (I think it was in there, could have been a different source). One of the employees wanted to be on the board of a completely different and non-competing company, and Jobs basically said heck no, you need to focus all of your time at Apple.

Soooo.....well. You know.

Lucky. must be nice to have been able to jump on Steve Jobs coat tails at just the right point in time...

Also, didnt jobs frown on this focus on the wealth rather than Apple?

Eddy: Siri, please give me directions to the nearest German autobahn.
Siri: Here are your directions. The trip will take approximately 5 weeks from Cupertino.
Eddy: I'm in a Ferrari, remember?
Siri: Oh, right. In that case, you'll be there by supper.

considering how he just over took those products about hmmm a week ago... I think it's safe to assume he can't be blamed for them

And what's wrong with that? Is the rich being prohibit from getting richer? Is it a crime to get rich?

Honestly, if there is anything with a worse reputation that Apple Maps, it's Ferrari's sat nav system.

This is an obscene display of money.

He should be taxed at a minimum rate of 75%. He has too much wealth and must spread it around for the greater good.

Here's to hoping he actually EARNS his "product resuscitator" designation SOONER rather than later.
