My Thoughts on Larry's comment(s)
Apple is a great company and I love their products very much but it doesn't mean that I support everything they do.
Lot of companies want to be more like "Apple" , Its a company of great admiration.Apple has raised so well under Steve Jobs.
Infact even during his little absence Apple did so well.For example 3GS launch or 4S launch etc. which many thought would not be successful or apple is doomed kind of posts.
The influence of Steve Jobs will be there for years to come.
Lot of main executives left the company like Forstall who had been there from long time , Mansfield or Betrand Serlet who was key to OS X etc.
On the other hand , there are people like Cook , Ive , Schiller ,Criag etc. Who worked very close to Jobs and they share his vision and ideas.
But right now most of them are working on things they have never done before (like Ive on software design , Criag on iOS and Cook acting as CEO instead of seeing operations behind)
Right now , I see Apple being transformed into a "something" different because Ideas will be diverse under the new leaderships.
Bottom Line : I am excited to see where Apple is headed right now rather than being-a-conservative-who-criticizes-every-new-move
