I am a long time Apple fan, supporter and stockholder... started writing code for my 512K Mac in the beginning of 1985. I have owned a long list of Apple products, and at the current time my Apple "inventory" includes an iMac (2011), an iPhone 5, an iPhone 5S, an iPad Air and an iPad Retina Mini. I love Mac products, both developing software for them and using them. When Tim Cook first took over the helm for Steve, I was enthusiastic and very much in favor of this move, based upon what I had heard and read about Tim's performance and skills in his previous role. As time has passed and Apple has undergone some significant changes, I honestly believe that Tim Cook is not the right person to be in the CEO role. I must assume, without knowing for certain, that he is still just as qualified and skilled in his operations abilities, but I can't get away from the sense that Apple is significantly lacking in the top management sphere. I am trying not to compare his public performances with those remembered from the Jobs days, but Tim is far from inspiring or exciting from my public perception. It also seems to me that there has been a painfully obvious decline in the kind of "perfection" that Steve/Apple was known for. I admit that Steve's reign included some disasters, but in spite of those, the aura of perfection still seemed to always be there. I, personally, don't get that feeling at all any more. I could go on and on, but it would seem like just nit picking things... however, they all seem to add up to what I feel is a big vacuum at the top. I guess the Board has to take heat for this as well, but I have just lost the enthusiasm I had previously held for Tim Cook as Apple CEO. I'd love to hear what others think.
