So apple intend to continue to battle superior products in court with patent warfare rather than better products and true innovations. Amazing!

He looks like a pre-owned car-salesman much like Steve, perhaps he can fool people into buying medicre hardware for premium prices too and believing they got the deal of their lives - time will tell!

Apple Rules Of Success:

A) Keep the design sleek/elegant.
B) Keep the user interface as simple as possible (trust your User Interface Engineers)
C) Keep the synergy between products as much as possible
D) Rabidly patent inventions and make sure to police them with fervor.
E) Keep the software royalties flowing...

Hes still part of the company, just not CEO. Things will be awkward, but I don't see Apple going down anytime soon (as much as it irks me to say).

Thus begins apple's decline...
Apple deserves to be in the ranks of a good French perfume manufacturer or a good jewelry maker, not as a company manufacturing devices for an interconnected world. Apple signals the decline of freedom and the closing of technological advancement in America, unless it goes under. It is for this reason that I will celebrate the fall of Apple if it comes. People have to regain freedom from the drm straitjacketing of hardware that Apple stands for. We must continue to pursue open standards that advance the knowledge of the people, not standards that dumb them down and try to rob them of their money, which is what Apple stands for.

I wish HP still had one or more of the Hewlett and or Packard family in charge of it, maybe they wouldn't be throwing away almost a century of hardware innovation just because some twit fired from SAP (Leo Apotheker had a whim and the board was stpid enough to hire his dumb ass .
HP NEEDS TO FIRE THE BoD and this assinine CEO Leo Apotheker!

I think it's important for Apple to help keep Steve Jobs alive as long as possible.Maybe the method If We Can Keep a Severed Head Alive...Discorporation and U.S. Patent 4,666,425 or a full head transplant on another Human Body or an Isolated Brain hooked up by computers.
You know something like that cartoon Futurama
Having Steve Jobs die would be bad for Apple so they should keep him alive any way possible.

How did Tom's get to be a site with some of the most consistent and most banal Apple bashing on the web? @Tom's editors, why no response ever to the stream of comment garbage that appears on your site? Satisfied with these contributors? Enjoy writing for them?

Satisfied. Tom's HARDWARE, mind you. Apple's hardware is inferior and costs much more; so of course we'll bash it, just like any other useless hardware. What, do you suggest we support Apple and its ripping-off techniques? Just because this site has a Mac OS forum doesn't mean people here support Apple a lot... quite the opposite, in fact. And it's deserved. I think you're in the wrong place.

BTW, to Apple: nice work pissing everyone off with patent trolling and lame show-off. When I joined that site a few months back, any anti-Apple comment would be thumbed down to a least -10; the situation has reversed now. I think it just *MIGHT* have something to do with what Apple has been up to for the las few months? So, as I said, it's well-deserved.

apple sells you a lifestyle based on lies and deception.
you look cool with an ipod, the main reason it was so desirable, that and itunes...
people, and i sware to god, real people i know, have said that an apple computer is better than a cheaper computer built for gaming, because "it was more expensive, and thus has to be better" and yet, all they do is use email...

apple takes advantage of the stupid and the trendy to give them something that looks cool, and to hell if even functions right (see iphone 4)

With Jobs staying on as Chairman, he probably still has an influence in the products - so Apple's downfall may not be immediate. The real effects will appear when Jobs passes.
