Apple seems to be struggling. Without the iPhone, Apple very well may have been dead by now. The car and TV apparently are gone, with Apple way too far behind to make a real run at it. The Mac Pro was a good idea, but after years of no updates, Apple again appears to have abandoned the Pro user. The iPhone is seeing only modest unexciting tweaks each year, and Samsung has passed Apple on many practical, useful features. iPad numbers have stalled or dropped with no real innovation to pick those numbers back up. What/where is the next big thing? Who is the visionary these days? Ive is purely a curves and aesthetics guy. Cook is a supply chain and figure head guy. Eddie and others are cruisers. I just don't see a bright long-term future...

A great film, and a wonderful "Jersey shores" soundtrack.

But Eddie Cue doesn't meet the cut - he's a snoozer, not a cruiser.
