Apple's Board of Directors are reported 'concerned' with the pace of innovation at the company and are pressuring Tim Cook to deliver, according to FBN's Charlie Gasparino.

From what we understand, there is concern at the board level, sources are telling the Fox Business Network, about the pace of innovation over at Apple. What have they had lately? They had the iPad and a few other things, but they don't have anything innovating from what came from Steve Jobs and that concern is basically manifesting into pressure on Tim Cook to innovate, and to do something fast.

We should point out, this is an interesting boardroom drama. It does not mean that Tim Cook is out of a job or that there is a job search out there, we don't know that and I don't believe that is happening. In fact, sources inside Apple are saying that's not the case.

What we are able to confirm is that the board is worried about what is in the pipeline. Do they have the right stuff in the pipeline? Do they have innovative stuff in the pipeline? Do they have stuff to keep the momentum going?

Take a look at the video report below...

Just open the software to developers already. Free the jailbreak team of their security research "Of course," Cook told AllThingsD's Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. "On the general topic of opening up APIs, I think you'll see us open up more in the future, but not to the degree that we put the customer at risk of having a bad experience. So there's always a fine line to walk there, or maybe not so fine." Just a thought for some of you jail-breakers out there: What if iDevices came pre-installed with cydia and an advanced security base IOS. The owner of the device has an option in their settings called "Jailbreak" or something along the lines, it would then explain to the user that beyond this point opens a lot of doors for customization but at the risk of having a bad experience and or a buggy experience. This would allow the user to then have the choice to have a "jailbreak" like experience that could make them love their phone even more and still have the option to switch back to the normal iOS at any given time. If anything was to go wrong on the device, the user has many options for reporting bugs and testing 3rd party tweaks / customization's without actually causing harm to the device because of a more advanced like "Mobile Substrate" and "Safe mode". Think of it as an always Open Beta that all users can try and if they dont enjoy it they can stick to their boring basic iOS experience. Obviously i am not saying this would be easy but would be a lot better for development, innovation, and the increase of sales for apple! I could keep going on with ideas but please just pass this around and hopefully apple and or 'Tim Cook' will come across it and realizw how much this would help iOS development and apple itself. Steve Jobs is gone. Bless his soul. But always remember he was all about making the User feel in control of their device while also having an amazing experience with the device! -Cheers

Fjohn. Don't be An idiot. Samsung and Koreans copy a lot of stuff. That's their Modus operandi.

Apple is waiting for Samsung and other companies to come up something new so that they can "innovate and copy" them. YOU GUYS MUST UNDERSTAND THAT "COPYING PROCESS TAKES TIME EVEN THOUGH ITS JUST COPY" . So give apple some more time to talk about new innovations cause Samsung s5 coming by next year only .

Learn how to speak you moron. You're delusional. Everything Samsung and other companies have produced have been cheap ripoffs of apple products. The iPod, iPhone, iPad, macs and even the look off apps. They've been doing it for Years. Go back to your delusional fantasyland in your mothers basement.

You little pathetic monkey. Apple copied just everyone to come up with iPhone . Touch screens and smart phones were there years back even before apple thought of making one. Pads were copied from HP and all other brands. All what they have is iOS as their own which is used by only apple (in fact no one wants it ). Now apple started copying all the jailbreak tweaks and collecting patents for the same. Lol. Heard next iPhone comes with android in it. Wish if its true. Look up and read you funny moron.

Don't you know how it first looked and girst appeared whwn it came out, well apparently nor because if you went to wikipedia where everything about iphone is listed, it says right there iphone came out in 2007 and that's when it introduced scamdroid a year later inspiring them to make their own phone to look like iphone, after a few years until bow, they copied apple maps mobile to googay maps mobile, the earbuds to in-earbuds, siri to s voice, the craplets, chromecrashed. Lamedroids trying to add their own features but apple has the better performance and textures and mostly, it ends up in less accidents because it's not the same poor material like it once was, galagay is the same old shit and same old 4.1 os, but today thanks to iphone, we have ios 7. If you don't agree here, who the fuck are you, a wannabe?

Apple is waiting for Samsung and others to make something new so that they can copy them and do their innovation (that's apples innovation till now anyway ) and that's the reason they are always late to come up new products. YOU GUYS MUST UNDERSTAND THAT "COPYING TAKES TIME EVEN THOUGH ITS THE COPY OF OTHERS.

Learn how to speak you moron. You're delusional. Everything Samsung and other companies have produced have been cheap ripoffs of apple products and the same shit for years except size. The iPod, iPhone, iPad, macs and even the look off apps. They've been doing it for Years. Go back to your delusional fantasyland in your mothers basement you pathetic chubby pig.

Innovations take time. They take longer when Steve jobs is not around. Get it?
How's bandroid - August 9, 2013 at 4:07pm
ince when did it take them longer without steve jobs? If iphone wasn't number one today, this would make sense! Get it? Steve jobs didn't yell at apple just to make them get ideas, he inspired them, not rush them, know the fucking real story when you see that the jobs movie.
BA - August 9, 2013 at 9:52pm
I don't need to see the movie dildo. But apple is slower without Steve and its normal they are still in mourning. But don't worry things will kick ass when the UFO donut is finished in cupertino.
