Comment Legacy (Score 3, Insightful) 424 424

What will determine Jobs' perceived success going forward is if Apple continues to innovate, or that it falls apart without his guidance.

A great leader creates success around them. Does Apple in 10 years look the same or worse than it does now? If worse, why? Cook is a capable performer, but was Jobs the lynchpin that kept things moving or did he create his 'legacy' in a stable enough fashion that Apple continues as if he never left.

Comment Jobs must have went (Score 0, Troll) 424 424

Jobs must have gone to the same low rent executive training program that we send our executives too because making products people want to buy so that you can make money isn't really earth shattering.

Laying off thousands of people, cutting hundreds of product lines to focus on three main products which are beginning to stagnate is hardly 'innovative'. It's hardly a good idea either. Give Apple another 10 years and we'll see if this "culture of innovation" supposedly created at Apple continues, or it was just one man with a plan that drove their share price.
