Calacanis blames Cook's lack of vision for a disappointing refresh of the MacBook Pro and suggests it may be time for Cook to step down.
If you put the person in charge of logistics in charge of Apple, which they did, it's fine, the ships and the trains, everything is going to run on time but the product is going to suffer. They need a product visionary in there to understand that getting rid of the phone jack and then forcing people to make a decision if they want to charge their phone or make a phone call is incompetence. Then to take the MagSafe connector, which Steve Jobs is like this is so important the MagSafe because your computer is not going to go flying across the room, and everybody's like oh my god hallelujah this MagSafe is so genius, and to take that innovation that they're known for and throw it away, and put USB-C, put four USB-Cs, and then take out another loved feature, the HDMI that plugs right in, knowing that people who are in the video business and developers love that, it wreaks of some level of incompetence that could only happen when you put somebody as boring and visionless as Tim Cook in charge of a company with a legacy and a passionate user base like Apple. It's a disaster right now.
If they start losing Mac video editors and Mac artists to this new Surface thing. That is horrible.
We have to talk about when is Tim Cook is getting out of that chair because he is killing this company. I mean I know they have a ton of money but he has to get out because Jony Ive's phoning in.
