The tech press is destroying AAPL
After today's 5% stock price drop, I'm convinced that the tech journalists are actively working to bring down the greatest company in the world. I'm not saying it's a conspiracy, but rather a sort of "common cause" that I don't understand.
Their strategy is simple, but effective. For the past decade, they sang Steve Jobs' praises, elevating him to a god-like figure.
Now, it's obvious that Apple has a huge talent pool,: Jony Ive, KBE, Phil Schiller, Eddy Cue, Tim Cook. Yet, every time these guys do something great, like yesterday, they are double guessed, measured against the fake Steve Jobs image created by the tech press. Don't get me wrong, I think Steve Jobs was a brilliant marketer, but Apple's talent pool is way deeper than that.
It's time for Apple to be great again. Not just build insanely awesome products. It's already doing that. Iphone 5S is the greatest leap forward since the original iphone (64 bit, finger print scanner).
The share price can rebound when Apple gets the journalists again to tell its story, like they did for so many years. It's the same company that created so many revolutions, and that still can revolutionize the world once or twice a year.
