As stated above Steve had a policy that Apple's top admin were not
allowed to serve on other boards as it takes away the focus from Apple.
I have been a Mac Die hard fan since 1990, I am wondering for the first time
if Apple is loosing the magic? I think others are starting to feel that way look
at the stock action today. Another quote at Apple was "skate to where the puck is going to be not where it already is" Although I love my iPad mini, in reality
it really is a product where Apple is skating to the puck.

Ferrari's navigation systems have always sucked. I would say he could help them out by bring Apple Maps over but I'm not sure that would help much at all.

That's probably going to happen sooner than you think.

I would think that navigation on a car like that is hardly a priority. If your sat nav is the thing you are worried about, then you have missed the point of a Ferrari.

Anyone else find this a little odd: "says he has owned a Ferrari for five years." Five years just doesn't seem like a whole lot. Would've been more compelling if it were 10-20 years...but 5? Just makes the justification/qualification kinda weak. ...but of course, who am I to talk, as I will be driving home in my lowly Mazda later this evening.

If it can be improved, then why not? It's not like Ferrari throws performance out the window.

If the news or rumor involves someone associated with Apple, even if it has little or nothing to do with Apple products, it is a worthy "mac rumor."

Probably a stockbroker since it is registered in NY.

I'd bet not, this was in the Adirondacks, 200 miles from NYC. Saw the guy at the same place many times this past summer. Not a place where a stock broker would hang out if you know what I mean.

I've always likened Apple to be more like McLaren.

I thought Apple products didn't mysteriously catch on fire any more? There's no synergy to be had here.

It's starting to make sense now. They need to play catch up to Google, so in stead of Priuses with camera's we will have Ferarris with cameras racing around the country.

Jobs frowned on anything that drew attention away from him
