How Tim Cook is changing Apple

via Fortune,

For their part, most Apple employees seem more than satisfied with Cook. He often sits down randomly with employees in the cafeteria at lunchtime, whereas Jobs typically dined with Jonathan Ive. It is a small difference that speaks volumes about how employees can expect to interact with their CEO.

Jobs himself often repeated that it is important that his successor not follow in his footsteps & chart his own course with the soul of Apple intact. I think Tim Cook has been doing a brilliant job of that. The article points out Siri as the major misstep but wasn’t it Jobs’ idea of acquiring & integrating it with the iPhone? Are any of the Voice actuated services out there considered perfect?  Even with competition (Yes, even the unreleased S-Voice) Siri seems to be doing a damn fine job!
