• Wozniak Talks Tim Cook's Future in New Interview



    Despite widespread criticism that Apple CEO Tim Cook hasn't lived up to the creative and aggressive business standards of his predecessor, the late Steve Jobs, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak believes the current Apple boss is not only doing a great job, but that Apple's best days may still be ahead.

    In a "controversial" new interview (then again, it seems every Wozniak interview is called "controversial"), the "other Steve" talks about Cook and the creative conditions inside of Apple today. For starters, Wozniak disagrees with analysts who are calling for Cook's resignation.

    "We haven't seen what new categories of products are being developed secretly," Wozniak says, suggesting the jury is still out on Cook because he hasn't been in the big seat long enough to fully judge the value of his leadership, which has been terrific by Wozniak's standards. "Who knows what's going on in the company. But we have had stiff competition in the smartphones arena. Unfortunately, a lot of other companies came up with great products. But look at who is number one as far as sales, profits and company valuation are concerned. Tim Cook is a hard worker and he is very good at execution. I don't know him too closely. But, I'm willing to wait for a longer time."

    Most importantly, Wozniak doesn't see the death of Steve Jobs as being "fatal for the magic" at Apple.

    "It's a sort of looking back thing," Woz explains. "If Jobs had lived, would Apple be better or worse than what it is now, I think, nobody can look back and say if the company had made different decisions, it would have great. But what you got to say is how we can be constructive on the path that will get the best for Apple."

      It's true, it hasn't been long enough to tell. Which is funny 'cuz it's been over 2 years. And so while 2 years isn't long enough for a president to change a corporation, according to Republicans, 2 months is long enough for a president to change an entire country.

      You see what I just did there?

      Funny thing it sure didn't take Obama long to destroy this nation did it? Lol but then again it's a lot easier to make something worse than it is to make it better.

      Who cares about the picture, for all we know the author Google it and use it for this article.

      This country has gone to sh1t because of all of the power and money hungry a55holes in DC. These people are only there for themselves and not for the people as they say they are when elected. As far as Obama goes? Here read Obama Has Unilaterally Changed or Delayed Obamacare at Least 24 Times

      It's being posted because some idiot tried to take a cheap shot at Republicans supposedly only needing 2 years to condemn the prez's policies. Of course the truth is that anyone with a brain only needed a month or 2 to realize the king had no clothes.
