    Hi

    Who would be the closest to Steve's as a person and his ideas and visions?

    In other words, who comes the closest to resemble Steve and would be best to be CEO.

    You can mention anybody you want in any field, not just tech.

    Examples:

    James Cameron
    Oprah
    Bill Gates
    Rene Angelil
    Al Gore....

    EDIT: Lol @ OP saying "Bill Gates" as an example.

    Now Tim Cook has cancer?!?!?! :confused::eek:


    ;)

    You can succeed Steve Jobs. You can't replace him. Steve groomed his successor. Let's let him run the shop for awhile.

    How about we just stick with Tim Cook for a while before we start thinking about that?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say it should be the person who was literally the closest to Steve's ideas and visions: Tim Cook.

    Apple isn't going to pull an HP anytime soon. Cook is the man. He isn't going anywhere.

    I'm not saying Cook is not good. It's a fact that they had and probably still have a small list of contenders.

    He would be the worst Apple CEO ever. Jobs makes things better and Lucas keeps ****ing with his work until even the most loyal fanboys hate it.

    Tim Cook is Steve's hand-picked CEO.

    I think Tim Cook is going to be there for a while. If Steve Jobs hand picked him and worked with him closely and trusted him to take the company over after he left, then we should be good. Steve wouldn't just give the company to anyone, it was his baby. Tim's going to be good for Apple and will be a great CEO IMO. He's not Steve Jobs, but thankfully Tim has already come out and said that he isn't, and he isn't going to try to act like him. He's going to be Tim Cook, no one else.
