    I have a feeling he's not just saying this for a sound bite.

    Once you take away their advantage from being first, its clear that the world at large prefers a company a bit less controlling. They're still the market leader, so they're not going anywhere in the next few years, but having someone will a bit more old school cred like the Woz, coupled with his apparently much more easy going personality, might help steer Apple back from the course they are taking.

    Investors look to the future, and are much more likely to react to current market trends, and putting someone with a different world view in charge might lessen the effect on their stock value when the tech bubble 2.0 pops. After Steve the Bad Cop leaves, Woz the Good Cop can reverse some of Steve's more draconian policies and emerge as the good guy.
