The ever-increasingly vacant-eyed John Sculley, failed former Apple Computer CEO, discusses the next step for former J.C. Penney CEO Ron Johnson and how Samsung can use his retail expertise.
He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg Surveillance.”
I think [Johnson’s] going to be in high demand; either go back to Apple, continue to build out the Apple store experience, or, if I were Samsung, I would be tapping him to go into those new fifty, uh, store-in-stores – ‘member the store-in-stores at JCP was very successful even though the overall company was’t – and Ron Johnson would be a superb executive to go in and build an experience for Samsung in the store-in-store at Best Buy similar to what he did at Apple… Apple has great products. Samsung has great products. I don’t see any reason why he can’t do it again. – Failed former Apple Computer CEO John Sculley

MacDailyNews Take: If you knew what you were doing, you bozo, you’d still be Apple CEO, not a D-level time-filler spouting off on random topics about which you have no meaningful knowledge or understanding on financial TV shows.
And, “similar to what he did at Apple?” This is Samsung you’re blathering about, bozo, so that would be an absolute given.
Bloomberg, what’s the rationale for putting this bozo on the air? “Today we turn for insight to the unprepared sugared water salesbozo who signed away Apple’s crown jewels to Microsoft, plunging the world into a miserably long Dark Age of Personal Computing, and who set Apple on course for a decade of decline to near non-existence.”
Worst. CEO. Ever. (Including Ballmer.)
By trotting out Sculley, hopefully Bloomberg Television is merely attempting comic relief.
“I don’t see any reason why he can’t do it again?” says Failed Apple CEO John Sculley. Gee, how about class, taste, loyalty and morality?
“If I were Samsung, I would…” If you were Samsung, you’d be living off what Steve Jobs built at Apple Inc. Oh, wait, you are.
Sculley: Uh, maybe I shouldn’t have fired Steve Jobs – June 7, 2010
