Eh, the current CEO was running day to day operations long before Jobs died. Jobs only went for the presentations. Likewise, Apple's products have only improved and have introduced major new features. I'm not even a long time Apple user but once I tried the products they blow me like a 5 dollar hooker. Why 5 dollar hooker? Because she needs the money more than billion dollar hooker. Personal experience, cheap hookers are always better.
