    1. There is one commenter here who always wants Tim Cook fired and he usually tells all the reasons why.

      I’ll settle for Apple acquiring a cloud computing business which Wall Street claims is an unlimited growth market (AWS, Azure Cloud). I’m also anxiously waiting for Apple to start bundling streaming video and music like Amazon which I think would really boost Apple’s services revenue.

      With Apple still flush with cash I think Apple can do both things with Tim Cook remaining as CEO.

      As things stand, Amazon will soon likely blow right by Apple in market cap value but I think it would be a lot harder if Apple had those extra revenue streams.

      1. “There is one commenter here who always wants Tim Cook fired and he usually tells all the reasons why.”

        Reassigned to his former position is what I have always advocated and hire a creative visionary as CEO.

        If you think I am the only one, you are not paying attention…

        1. It seems that many continue to miss the point you are making, namely that Cook is riding a gravy train instead of provoking innovation, and also that he is squandering opportunities to advance the Mac — the desktop computer that started it all — when he has the money and the engineering talent to do almost anything. It really is puzzling, and the obvious answer is that he’s just incompetent. Still, some of us hold out hope that Cook did get the message from pro users, told his best engineers to “go out there and do it right, and do it with a bang,” and they are toiling away, trying to upstage industry leaders and still protect Apple’s precious profit margins. I feel sorry for the engineers, not because they have been assigned an impossible task, but because the guiding laser vision to motivate them to achieve an impossible task just isn’t there any more. That’s why Tim Cook deserves criticism: not because he can’t make money, but because he is not Steve Jobs. Because he is not, he has ruined the franchise for creative professionals.

          1. Herself, I read your post three times. The last time slowly and savored every thoughtful precious insight. This is the most objective, comprehensive, fair assessment of present day Apple that I have ever read. To say well done is an understatement. You established a new benchmark and gold standard that all others will be judged… 🙂

          2. “he has ruined the franchise for creative professionals.”

            Oh yes! As a creative professional this nagging saga of Cook’s reign is the número uno saddest reality of them all…
