Apple After Steve Jobs

If Steve Jobs was still Alive… and Apple 3.0

I was thinking about WWDC and I was asking myself: what if Steve Jobs was still Apple’s boss?

WWDC would have been really different in a bad way. You may think Steve Jobs was a genius (he was) but at some point I feel he was kind of stubborn and I wonder if he would have agreed to many of the things we saw at the conference this year.

Now this is Tim Cook and Apple today is about openness while stying true to the best part of Apple when Steve was there: focused on building great products and software to work with them.

I think we are seeing Apple 3.0 emerge.

This nonsense belongs with some of the other books I’ve read about Apple. It fails to capture Apple, Steve, or anyone else in the company. Apple has over 85,000 employees that come to work each day to do their best work, to create the world’s best products, to put their mark in the universe and leave it better than they found it. This has been the heart of Apple from day one and will remain at the heart for decades to come. I am very confident about our future. We’ve always had many doubters in our history. They only make us stronger.

Cook is also a better internal communicator. He sends out more all-staff emails and holds more town hall meetings. He also understands that people need to take vacations and have down time […]

Cook brings more efficiency and organization to Apple, which is good because the company’s increased size and scale requires a professional, consistent leadership style that is more inclusive than Steve Jobs’s was.
