tech4people, 

yes let's hope Apple to be more open in the future :-) Nowadays, its secrecy does not bring about thrills anymore. There is the latest rumour about the next iPad release in March next year but not many are execited about it.

Anna,

I disagree.

The reason is Margins.

Have you seen how pathetically low the Profit Margins on Consumer Electronics products are today???

Its not a sector worth entering in because of tremendous over-capacity thanks to the Chinese.

I think Medical electronics sounds good. However, it would be great if Apple comes up with new innovations in e.g. own manufactured Television Screen etc .

Alex,

Need not be the case all the time!

Very often,the Smartest ideas come in an organization from people fiddling around(Bottom Up approach).

I am not very familiar with the inner workings of Apple's work culture today(under Cook);but from whatever little I have read;he seems very clear on fostering a culture of openness at the Organization today.

If that's true(and I Know that's a BIG IF);your rationale need not hold true all the time.

Azmat,

Sorry.

It won't work for me.

I need a Car to have fun;not be super-programmed like an Apple machine...

Anna,

Could'nt agree more!!!

Tim Cook is exactly the right man(in the right place) and with the right amount of Internal Support to take Apple forwards here.

Anna,

Automobile Industry is not a bad sector for Apple to diversify into but I fear that (atleast in the West);its a dying industry today.

How about Medical Electronics?

Now that is an industry which looks set to do very,very well going ahead[As populations age;their medical needs go up dramatically].

What do you think?

Tim Cook is precisely what Apple needs today.

Guys,

Tim Cook is a Bean Counter;He is precisely what Apple needs today.

He presents a simpler,more humbler side to Apple[Note his apology recently].

As a Company grows in Size and become a Corporate Giant[Which is what Apple is today];it can't adopt the same strategies which made it so Big in the first place[Look at Google or pick any case from the Book-Innovator's Dilemna].

You have to change.

And Tim cook is best placed to take them forward.

Regards

Ashish.

 @Nimantha.d, I don't think is a matter of "yes or no" All good runs come to an end. Could this simply be the case for Apple? I wonder!
