Business magnate Larry Ellison thinks that without Steve Jobs — “our Edison” and “our Picasso” — Apple Inc. is in trouble.
In a CBS News video interview with Charlie Rose, Ellison painted a bleak future for Apple.
Larry Ellison: He was brilliant. I mean, he was our Edison. He was our Picasso. He was an incredible inventor.
Charlie Rose: So what happens to Apple without Steve?
Ellison: Well, we already know. We saw, we conducted the experiment; it’s been done. We saw Apple with Steve Jobs (raises hand high). We saw Apple without Steve Jobs (lowers hand). We saw Apple with Steve Jobs (raises hand high). Now, we’re going to see Apple without Steve Jobs (lowers hand).
The video can be seen via CBS News here.
MacDailyNews Take: This is sad. Something seems to have slowed down Larry’s thought processes. Botox overdose?
Quick, somebody unstretch Larry’s face to the point where he can open his eyes enough to see that the variables in his infantile equation have changed dramatically:
Tim Cook ≠ John Fsckin’ Sculley, nor does Apple Computer, Inc. in 1985 = Apple Inc. 2013.
