Oh dont get me wrong. I still watch them, but I just don’t get the same sense of excitement as I used to, in the leadup, so I dont bother getting out of bed for them. Also, I’m too bloody old to bother as well.
I like Tim Cook, but he isnt Steve, and he isnt a marketing guru as Steve was. I don’t think he really knows what the people want, but he knows what the shareholders want and more profit seems to be the driving factor these days. Profit was always important, it has to be, for any business, but Steve Jobs struck a fine balance between profit and keeping the customer satisfied (hmm, sounds like a song, LOL! Paul Simon anyone?). Tim isnt comfortable in his role on stage and its painfully obvious. Then again I dont think any of them are, really. Steve was the man, he was a showman, a marketer extraordinaire and a joy to listen to. And those days are gone.
