news article released on:

Apple co-founder Steve 'Woz' Wozniak had some words for his former company.

Jobs did not make the company. He hired and had talented people around him. If he did not like a product he would make the division redo the project. That is where some of the problem lie. Tim Cook and any subsequent CEO needs to have a presence about them to be a game changer/innovator.

Another problem I see it is a saturation one. The expectation is set so high for Apple to best itself and that cannot be sustained. Now it is product maturity and obsolesce cycle. Iphone was not an innovation, but a game changer in a budding market in which BlackBerry and Nokia owned.

Ipad, I think was a great innovation and started a new computing revolution, however the product matures, and the novelty wears off. The product now becomes a consumable, and that is what Apple is trying to negate.

The second 2 sentences, in your post, are precisely the reason why, IMHO, Steve Jobs made the company.

apple phones have sucked since htc made them look like clownish buffoons in 2010...the HTC Evo 4G from then...with a modern proceesor still would beat iPhone5...the iPhoners just got 4g...the rest of us had it for 3 plus years...
Apple is goofy- they call other companies advances marketing gimmicks until they get them...then that rhetoric is all forgotten... apple is 3 years behind the top tier Droids and shouldnt even be mentioned in the same breath as Droid DNA or Galaxy3 or Razr maxx

Lets not write apple off too soon though; with reports indicating development of the new iWatch, they could soon be dominating the wrist watch market.(Sarcasm)

Does anyone else get the impression killapple and comeonisheep are the same person? Hmmm?
