    They look like the same person with different hair length.

    Let's be honest. Instead of giving the job to someone from within—who would be far more experienced with Apple's nuances than this new hire, and far more deserving due to seniority—the SJW Tim Cook decided to hire a woman as an affirmative action hire. Just like he did with Angela Arhendts instead of giving the job to someone from within.

    Is Ms. Arhendts not doing a good job?

    I thought that too. Why not promote from within? They must have lots of lawyers. To me it’s a failure of management if they don’t have a good succession plan that involves developing the people you have.

    I thought that too that there must be significant pressure to get females into upper management positions, but surely they have some smart female lawyers already. Couldn’t they do some succession planning and develop one of these internal folks?

    Retiring at 59 after making 22 million dollars/year. Couldn't get much better.
