This is way to early. Before we even see Tim cooks work it will have to be 2013 for his really early stuff and probably 2015 when we see his actual ideas and products. He's been CEO for a year, companies don't make a prototype and release it the day they acknowledge its functionality.

I think the current mission for Apple is to simply improve the products they have, and I don't think it'd be much different if Jobs was here. Sure, they're probably batting around some ideas for future innovative products (TV?) but I'm not expecting a ground breaking release any time soon...and I wouldn't be expecting it even with Jobs at the helm.

TIME need to GTFO.
If anything, Apple's getting worse since under his wing! Get rid of him as CEO.

If there is no jailbreak the sales will drop tremendously

Lol at the posts on this thread!! First. The iPhone 5 is amazing. Did it blow my mind? No. Is it far better than the 4s? Yes. I loved my 4s so why wouldn't I love something that is better? Lol.
I laugh at everyone who thinks Jobs had nothing to do with the iPhone 5 lol. Think people need to open there minds a little more.
Everyone compares cook to jobs and I never understand why. No one can compare to jobs. No one has revolutionized industries like jobs. Jobs was one of the best visionaries of any of our life times.
I'm sorry to say it but everyone ******* and moans how horrible apple is with out jobs and Tim cook is horrible. Well come on people jobs is freaking dead!! You think apple had a choice. Everyone talks as if cook was chosen over jobs.
Everyone knows that Tim will never be Steve, but who better else to take over than a man that worked the closes with Steve while he was at his best.

None of us know cook personally. Know his visions or ideas. All we know is what we see today. And what we see today was well in place before jobs left this earth

But I am trying to be hopeful. The tech world needs an "innovative" Apple - not just an Apple upgrading its old ideas.
I VERY MUCH want Cook to succeed and prove me wrong. Please, Tim?!!

Question, why is making the iPhone bigger and calling it an iPad innovative, but when the iPad is made smaller into a Mini, it's not innovative?

If Steve jobs was so great and was assumed to love apple most in his life. Why would he leave Cook in charge when he was sick? Seems that everyone trusts jobs judgement but then reporters and bloggers like to skew reality.
Fact is Steve saw something special in cook and in fact put him in charge to carry out his visions and dreams. I don't think we will ever see a visionary like jobs for a very log time. However we have yet to see what cook can do.
iPad was innovative and revolutionary because it changed an industry. Just like the iPhone. The iPhone was not the first hand held touch screen device. But it was the first to change an industry.
People like to say apple is losing it because they are not overly WOWED every year.
Why do people like android over apple? Has nothing to do with innovation. And has everything to do with apple being locked down. Also a lot do like the larger screen.
Anyway these are just my thoughts and mine alone. I welcome anyone to share them with me or not haha.

Besides that your question was written as a rhetorical question and was kind of you being a smart ***. Lmao. (No offense really I mean that playfully not insulting)
But really the argument that the iPad is just a big iPod was thrown out shortly after the iPad was released and people actually were able to use one. Lol

He was sick a very long time, Suby. Very long.. He 'settled' on Cook as the best available. My comments and study lead me to question whether Cook is good 'enough'. He's not off to a good start - but his business decisions (even releasing Maps the way he did) is VERY consistent with his style. Remember, Suby - this isn't Cook's first company. He has a very followable record in business prior to Apple.
I've neve thought I could make a theme until I worked with someone who was great at it. Now look at my themes lol.
Point being, working under or with greatness can do a lot for someone.
In fact we may see some things come out that people want that maybe Steve was agains but cook was for. We just don't know yet. Cook has some really big shoes to fill.
You have no way of knowing this my friend. We have to disagree strongly here and I would politely suggest you do your homework on Cook. Even your statement about 'everybody at Apple trusts Jobs' shows that your study on this topic is a 'bit thin'.. (not being an azz, bro.. just, trust me -- you need to do some more reading and not blindly trust - when we blindly trust we sound like Fanboys.. and that's not good).
Also your miss understanding my argument. I'm not saying cook is good or bad. What I'm saying is people are to quick to throw someone out. You nor I know anything about cook other than what people publish.
Articles and publications are written by people in there opinion. This may come as a shock to you, but publications can be not 100% accurate. Someone could easily make cook look like a rock star and easily make him look like an azz bag lol.
I speak in generalities. When I say people trust jobs it's because 99% of comments talk about "I wish Steve was here this would never happen" "Steve's death was the death of apple" and all that BS. I am in no way claiming to know everything on this subject.
But what's hard for me to beleive is that someone that is said to he the best CEO of this time and such a great bright visionary, hired and appointed a man that isn't fit for the job.
But for real my friend none of this is said in anger. In fact I am really enjoying the discussion. Just bringing up some up some things to think about.
Steve, never stopped. Sick or well. His brain was always on apple. One of Steve's friends said he once visited him in the hospital and while visiting him he was sitting there drawing out ideas in his hospital bed. Steve showed him how idea and what was on that paper was essentially an iPad. And this was years before the iPhone.
Point being is sick or not didn't make Steve any less of the great mind he is.
