He looks sickly. Does everyone look sick after they become Apple CEO?

...

All i see on my ioad is a blank area where the video should be. Why would a tech site put up a video in flash at this point?

Does WSJ always delay in posting the full video? I'd rather watch the whole thing...

While it's obvious he probably doesn't have Steve's vision, it's clear from the video that he gets his choices. He understands that the tablet is not just another PC, and his comment about being free from legacy is particularly important for explaining the success of the iPad and iOS platform. I'm confident Tim gets the business even if he doesn't have as a strong a vision as where it's going.

Errr, he's reported to go to the gym for a heavy w/o daily, mountain bikes and climbs. How does that stack up to...say....an average guy's/your regimine?

Nowhere near as charismatic as Steve Jobs. :(
It's true. Steve's responses were always so fascinating, controversial, and engaging.

There's nothing wrong with Tim per se, but he's right: you can't make another Steve Jobs. He was one of a kind.

I have full confidence in Tim Cook as Apple's CEO.
I think he's doing a more than wonderful job at the post, and I think Apple's going to continue to make awesome products that both I and the rest of the world are going to love for many years to come.

However... nothing makes me miss Steve more than lengthy interviews with Tim like this one.
God, what a straight-edge, boring, uncharismatic guy. :(

The more I watch AllThingsD the more annoyed I am with Kara Swisher. Anyone else feel like her questions are terrible?

That being said - overall nice interview and great to see Tim on stage. He is great at what he does and is the perfect voice for Apple.

because most people use actual computers to visit websites? not an iOS toy - only kids who do not manage large sites think you can drop flash.

the new reality of Apple... an "Untalented" at the top. I'm sure the iOS community wont mind, he is like them.

I want the full video, with the truly bizarre intro that made Tim jokingly say something like "if i knew what i was following i wouldn't have agreed"

Steve was an artist, an entrepreneurial genius. This guy is a manager - a very good one at that, but still... Hope he can manage and keep to motivate innovative people that work for him.

While with Steve innovation was a top-down process, its Apples biggest future challenge to flip that while not jeopardizing quality or quantity of innovative output.

So? Those "actual computers" can support non-Flash video just fine.

How cute. Come on, throw in more ad hominem in there. Surely you can fit more in?
