    Now I understand where all my issues come from. And I thought playing trombone was just so I could be in the front row when we marched.

    We've had some great products so far under Tim Cook's direction and lead... The Retina MacBook Pro, the iPad Air, and the new, completely redesigned 9-inch tall Mac Pro! Please, people need to give him more credit....these are some great products that Apple is still producing and introducing, and Apple is still being innovative even with the loss of the visionary Steve Jobs.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention the iPhone 5s/fingerprint scanning 64-bit iPhone too!

    What does he care. He's likely richer and more powerful than all of the bullies that taunted him and his hair combined. Laughs on him I'd say. But honestly, who can't laugh at their own yearbook and H.S. vintage pics? There should be an Instagram filter named after it even.

    Heh. I think every decade is a bad hair decade looking back a decade later or more.

    If it makes you feel better, Mark Zuckerberg and I have the same first name and he's 10 DAYS younger than me. My wife sometimes teases me that she married the wrong Mark xD

    "You didn't go around calling him a nerd"


    With that hair you really didn't need to! So sad. Steve got to look like Ashton Kutcher. Tim got to look like a missing Brady Bunch brother.

    I don't get why people feel offended when someone say Tim is a boring CEO?
    He is boring thats the truth, he is not Jobs and he will never be.
    He is your typical CEO that gets the job done with no surprises etc.

    Imagine if Cook was CEO in 2004?(if i remember correct) when Steve said "it would be cool to make a phone like this" when they first showed him the iPad back then(they dropped the project and worked on making the iPhone), i doubt we would have the presentation of iPhone in 2007 if ever and thats the difference between a visionary CEO Steve Jobs and a boring CEO Tim Cook.

    As for the products that were out under his reign so far,it is silly to believe that apple doesn't have a roadmap at list 5 years ahead if not 10 with micro adjustments at current technology of the time.

    -iWatch
    -AppleTV interactive set
    -Tabletop touch computers
    -larger panel iPads
    -Revolutionary 4K display lineup
    -THIN Retina iMac lineup
    -Lighter, Carbon Fiber Portables

    What more? These are all directions I think Apple is headed. They have ALOT of new stuff in the pipeline, and ALOT of innovative stuff in development...it's not all just tiny spec tweaks every few months. Apple is still innovative, and they are still alive....there is much more ahead.

    Well first two statements are true. Last one is still "to been determined." So far TC has been a care taker to Jobs era products (even the newest ones surely were conceived during Jobs lifetime as he has only been gone two years and 4 months.) And as care taker he's even admitted he's bungled things and has not been stellar.
