To Tim Cook

Dear Tim,

Instead of doing interviews with reporters to maintain your fast falling stock price, you may want to allocate more time to R&D and software releases. Your quality control since Jobs' passing is abysmal.

Focusing on stock prices and trying to sell iterations of same products in different form factors is the beginning of the end for Apple. Your priorities are antithetical to what Jobs' were.

iTunes11 is an absolute beta mess.

I worry....

Are we forgetting that

a. the stock price got to where it peaked at under Tim's reign
b. before Steve passed, Tim was looking after the bulk of logistical operations
c. Tim was running the company multiple times in the past when steve was sick

Maps? QC disaster, yes.

So was MobileME under steve.


The rest of their lineup i have no problem with. People bitched when they dropped floppy drives, too.

re: a. give it a little more time and the stock will dump harder, guaranteed. TC et. al. will run this co. straight down the proverbial crapper.

re: b. Timmy should have remained at logistical op level!

re: c. Timmy running the co while Jobs was sick is Timmy doing what Jobs told him offsite -- HUGE DIFFERENCE with Jobs still CREATIVE and QC over everything. Sans Jobs Timmy has done a fine job wrecking this co.

iTunes11 QC disaster, YES!

Actually, iTunes 11 borked my library during upgrade. I had to reimport the whole thing.

Otherwise it's working fine now.

I think the main thing he's forgetting is that Tim probably doesnt come on this site.

Agreed. Zune which is a 2-year old application is superior to iTunes 11 as a music manager.
