According to Apple SVP Eddy Cue and new acqui-hire Jimmy Iovine, the post-Jobs Apple would make the company’s late co-founder Steve Jobs proud.
“I never felt a reset [after Jobs’ death]… When I look at what he set up at Apple and what we’re doing, I think he’d be extremely proud of all the work that we’re doing today and the products that we’re building. And so I think that we’re continuing a lot of the legacy that he built.” – Eddy Cue
“[Steve Jobs] didn’t suffer fools. And, when you meet the team at Apple, you get it; every one of them is incredible… This is a great, great company and any team that loses its point guard needs to change its offense a little bit… And they’re adding pieces. They’ve added Angela from Burberry who is brilliant. What a great choice that was. I had a meeting with her that was like, ‘Wow!’ She’s incredible. There are other people that they’ve added to the team that are amazing, plus the team that they have. Jony, you know, this guy’s incredible. Incredible people. Steve put the greatest team in the world together.” – Jimmy Iovine
