    Jony Ive is now the spiritual successor for Steve Jobs at Apple, according to technology journalist Micah Singleton. Tim Cook is playing the role he always played. Cook is a details guy and handles the supply chain like no one else. But, Jobs was always the product guy, and his fingerprints were on everything Apple did.

    Makes a lot more sense. Jony has the vision that Cook lacks.

    I think we will quickly know if this is a good or a bad thing. Apple needs to get back to focusing on pros and productivity, and solid tools for these types. Sure, iOS can still get plenty of attention, but one does not have to be ignored at the expense of the other.

    You can not run the company if you lack passion and commitment to the company and it's products. Tim and Jon are the one.

    I think phil Schiller & Jony at keynotes presenting would be perfect.

    Way to go, Tim. Elevating Ive and dumping Forstall should make for some insanely great products coming up.

    It feels like Apple is in a waiting for what's next mode, relying on previous successes. I feel this change will put Apple back into creating its own future with new products. I know the mini is a new product but overall there's a creative drive that's still missing. It's back.

    Jony does not look best pleased about his new role. Do not approach the cage. Do not feed the Jony.

    Now, this is a GREAT move by Tim! At least he knows people's strong points around him.

    Man

    Doesn't Apple have a campus gym? Some execs need to get in and shed some pounds.

    That's the way it should be from a year ago.

    I was amazed by APPL board to let Tim lead the company, not he is not a good leader. APPL is different from any other company not because of its operation (that's Tim, he does a fantastic job!), but because of Steve!

    They should have been looking for Steve's replacement and Johny should be at least on that short list. Wondering why it takes them a whole year to find Johny..... next door.
