Oh he farted. But it was called a feature you didn’t know you needed.
On that fruit diet, I bet he did!
If we could bring Steve Jobs back, we would have found a way by now.
As long as they can still use him to do the voice-over on product introduction videos.
The immediate question would be: who would then be CEO? Tim Cook seems to be doing a pretty good job. There is always room for improvement, but someone changing would be a risk and in my opinion, a replacement would more likely do a worse job.
It's like the US political surveys where they ask if you would vote for a "generic Republican" or "generic Democrat". "Generic" politicians don't exist and neither do "generic" CEO's. If you could replace Tim Cook with the perfect CEO then sure. But the perfect CEO doesn't exist.
No, send Jony Ive to design purgatory.
No. They'll be back over a trillion before you know it
No, but whoever had the idea that siri cant set a timer on mac(which is like the most basic thing ever, and they say she is a smart assistant) should be fired.
tim cook isnt a bad CEO, but he sure isnt the visionary Jobs is. maybe they need a CTO instead of jonny ive. im speculating a part of the problem is ive is too influential in apple, and some priority is given to design instead of engineering. of course it's can also be bad if engineering is given priority, like pixel 3 XL.
Totally agree, I thought he was awkward at first on stage, he definitely has grown into his role on stage which, from my personal experience, is a reflection of growing more comfortable and feeling more integrated in one's overall role.
As much as it has grown since Steve stepped down, I would say Tim Cook is actually better suited to lead a company of Apple's size than Steve was.
Maybe the world is less in need of a next big thing than a couple beats to fix a few things that are already out there. Goes for the whole planet, so why not Apple as well. However, I don't have a problem with Tim Cook. I remember Sculley. I'll take Cook.
I still love Apple gear and their ecosystem, but like any other Apple fanatic I have my particular list of things I think Tim Cook should be poring over how to bring up to my standards, even while he's eating dinner. I regard myself as a typical tech user, too.
Just to restate my previous post, if I wanted a visionary to create the next startup, I would bet on Steve. Apple is now the powerhouse that can look 10 years into the future and see where their tech needs to be, while being flexible enough to disrupt themselves before a startup does. So far so good.
Did you hear that Steve left us?
Apparently he's alive and well telling everyone with an option what he would do today.
I don’t know that he should step down, but he needs to come up with a business strategy that’s better than just charging more for products to make up for diminishing sales. If he, or his team, can’t do that, plummeting stocks/revenues are going prompt the board to force him to resign.
Not step down, but be thrown out in disgrace.
Now it’s time for Tim Crook to step down.
mines been running as a plex server since the 1st day i got it and its been fine

I wish Apple’s collective brass would step down. Won’t happen though. There have been a lot of sloppy software mistakes, and decisions like passing off manufacturing defects on a tablet as okay are reasons why. To say nothing of customers acting like beta testers now.
The recent comment about moving toward services bothers me, given the current track record of hardware and software snafus + higher prices.
I’d be fine if the hardware and software quality and QC were excellent, but... here I am for now.
