So says Dan Moren at Macworld http://www.macworld.com/article/2940431/tim-cooks-apple-is-the-apple-we-need.html Tim Cook might be the right guy to lead Apple right now but I don't think it's for the reason Moren suggests. To me Cook may be the right man for the job because of how big Apple has gotten and Cook is excels at making sure the trains run on time. But it seems like where Steve Jobs was obsessed with products Tim Cook is obsessed with social policy. Contrast his commencement speech at Auburn in 2010 to the one he delivered at GW this year. The first was completely non political and somewhat similar to Job's address at Stanford. The second was much more political and quite honestly not nearly as good. People talk about Jony Ive's promotion being a sign of having one foot out the door. But I wonder if perhaps Cook wouldn't be more at home running for congress or the senate in Alabama than running Apple.
