  •  The difference between Apple and some no-name (0+ / 0-)

    hardware company is not that its designers, engineers, and staff are more talented.  There's a specific vision.

    •  Exclusively vested in Jobs? (0+ / 0-)

      Sorry, I don't buy that. I can't say too much here, but assure you:

      (a) Jobs was good in many ways, but not a God

      (b) One of the ways he was good was to amplify what came from below, including the vision thing; master appropriator

      (c) Left Apple in better shape than he found it

      (d) Left it in good hands

      But don't take my word for it, take Jobs' parting advice to Tim Cook & Co:
      "Don't ask 'What would Steve do'".

      If you think he was bright and knew what he was doing, you can consider why he said that.

      People expecting Apple or any company to bat 1.000 all the time will be sorely disappointed because things run in cycles.

      They will no doubt go up and down, but suggesting a long decline into mediocrity is a bit premature, and faith-based thinking.

      What about my Daughter's future?
