There is no such thing as a perfect person to run the company, that's why you need a team to run the company. Yes, Tim might not be the same as Steve, but think about it this way. If Steve were to go his way of running the company without valuable advice from Tim, would Apple be better (and rich) than it is today? Similarly, I believe Tim knows he is not as innovative as Steve, so I hope that he trust the Engineers and designers with more creative freedom in coming up with what new toys. However, there's something that disturbs me, in that he's not a people person. I wonder if it's true, cuz the reason he sacked Scott Forstell is simply because he's backing Jony Ive and Bobs Mansfield, isn't it?

I have a feeling that the other reason he fired Forstall, is because he is the only other guy who could be Apple's CEO, as he was very close to Steve, besides besides being the heart and lungs of iOS and Mac OSX, i.e, the heart and lungs of Apple.

Call for Tim Cook's quick resignation. Those who love Apple products stand up for save Apple. Call for Tim Cook's Resignation.

What about if he's simply applying the gay's way of managing people, doing business. There are many gays around, much more than anywhere else in SFO bay... who knows. Buckle your pants tighly and never lace your shoes at work then, and everything might be alright... Just kidding, but just in case... watch your butty, you californians.... ^.^

Cook: a genius bean counter, but a bean counter nonetheless. If only J Ive can be groomed to lead, the future of Apple will be safe.

To be honest, my feelings are that, in the phone world, a shake-up can only happen every so often. When the iPhone was created, there was a desperate necessity for a phone to be more than a phone, and for a human interface to be more than utter garbage. Apple saw these two needs, harnessed the technology available and created new ones when necessary, and made something revolutionary. Ever since, the iPhone changes have been evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, which is not an issue in my mind. Performance is top-notch and more importantly, user satisfaction is second to none. While I agree Apple is somewhat overdue for some innovation (as opposed to thinnovation), for an ENORMOUS company focusing on evolutionary technology, Cook is an excellent leader. Jobs did not surround himself with the second-best in the industry, and designs from Apple are continuously awe-inspiring - and who better to push those products out for global distribution in timely fashion than the former COO of Apple?

I like Siri to be Honest and As for NFC if its SUCH a big Thing? Why hasn't the Industry Adopted it yet? I think Passbook is a start in that Direction but even Jobs said that the tech isn't just there. Why incorporate something into a phone that isn't going to be used just yet. As for the Mini well... I think it made sense for them to make one just not one of such low par tech. A non- retina display iPad is a step backwards IMP.

i agree 100%, to add, for what i can see, Tim is just a financial figure guy, he will do everything driven from the numbers and unfortunatly we already felt the technicaly he is a failure. I have been writting that if Tim goes ahead as a CEO of Apple, the company in 5 years maximum will be again dead to the world.

Simply put in five years apple just will not be the same company and I see there stocks going down. Because of all the patent issues And lawsuits. the disappointment in there maps app and the iPhone 5. Is a clear indication of what's coming ahead.
