    Great work on the photoshop hairs... Love them all :D

    You know what...... I can't help but feel the current Apple top crew could be places side by side with the same haircut.

    The Afro Apple Band ;)

    Do you remember what Steve Jobs said about his hiring of John Sculley?
    " What can I say, I hired the wrong guy".
    I personally think he hired the wrong biographer also, When I was reading the book I was thinking "this is the John Sculley of Biographers". Walter Isaacson didn't like Steve Jobs and he knows virtually nothing about computers or technology. What was Steve thinking? This is not to say that Tim is not a good CEO. I'm only reminding you that Steve Jobs was very fallible, and at the worst times it seems.

    (1) How the hell would you know?

    (2) You don't get to be the CEO of Apple (personally chosen by Steve Jobs) by being boring and uncreative.

    If that's your standard for boring and uncreative, I shudder to think how you'd measure up.

    Remember when Steve Jobs said "we hire people who want to make the best things in the world"?

    For every quote, for every statement, there will be an exception to the rule. And you know full well that Tim Cook and John Sculley are, by no means, comparable.

    ...Which meant, of course, that I had to look it up.

    Oh myyyyy....

    ----------

    Oh that's hilarious.

    All good stuff. But keep in mind that Cook was running the show for a long while before Jobs died. For a long while before his liver transplant, in fact.

    Jobs relied--absolutely relied--on Cook's talents, not least among them the ability to get things done. There's no better cat-herder in Silicon Valley. Cook gets far too little credit for Apple's progress as a company since the late '90s. And it speaks well of him that he's perfectly okay with that.

    And we should respect your analysis because? What companies have you started or headed and pushed to greatness?

    It was also in the 80's as well. All the Pop bands like Wham, The Cure, The Models, Spandau Ballet, Howard Jones and Nik Kershaw had crazy hair like this.

    All the girls had hair like Marcia Brady, While the boys looked like Greg Brady - lol

    Tim Cook in his year book could pass for another American Icon, Ronald McDonald. He's just missing the make-up and the nose :D

    Noted. Revised: The '70s was the worst Bad Hair Decade on record.

    I think the whole piece reflected a kind of intellectual integrity and especially the trombone part.

    It's like why the trombone? Has a distinct poetic madness to it.

    ..but also consistency of character somehow.

    I never intimated that they were, I am only saying that Steve Jobs is not perfect, and made many mistakes. I don't think Time Cook is necessarily a mistake, but history will have the final say in the matter. Stay tuned.
