    But the company is dead. Apple isnt Apple without S. Jobs.

    Sad but true. No one knows this tim cook guy, and it's HIGHLY doubtful he will ever be able to replace Jobs by even a thin margin.
     
  4. Cook looks like a younger look-alike Jobs.

    The investors haven't went on a selling spree yet... and Cook has been interim CEO twice already...

    Apple isn't going anywhere.

    Steve Jobs, Tim Cook?

    This proves my theory that all Apple CEOs are actually automatons, all named using a name generator.

    Gates, then Jobs, now Cook?

    52mil for a CEO backup, damn how do i apply? how much did Steve jobs make then? i need to go to CEO school or something :)

    Apples future is fine, the iPhone 5 is coming out in the next quarter or so and thats going to be a major success plus the iPad3 will be out shortly after. Now Will they be as innovative, thats another question

    True, but given his deteriorating health, he wont be able to help Apple in the same capacity as he could when he was CEO and healthy. That being said Apple will be fine

    Indeed, the best way to stay afloat is to build fanatics, and they have quiet the menagerie.

    Cook is breaking the patern...we need someone with a last name ending in an 's'. :p

    This only happened because the world ends next year and no one has anything left to lose.

    Kidding but, Jobs isn't too far away from Apple. He still has the position of Chairman.
